Vacant property goes for £208,000 at auction.
HELE Bay Garage in Ilfracombe has been sold at auction for £208,000.
The former petrol filling station, shop and residential accommodation was among 20 lots sold by Clive Emson auctioneers on Thursday.
It has been closed for about a year and receivers had instructed the freehold sale of the property with a guide price of £200,000 to £250,000.
Scott Gray, auctioneer and regular on BBC’s Homes Under The Hammer, said: “Bidders were attracted by the potential of the site in an ideal position on the main road through the area.”
