Clive Emson Auctioneers reports on local property fetching way above its guide price.

A Beaworthy cottage was keenly fought at auction to sell for far more than its guide price.

Rose Cottage in Virginstow went for £124,000, way over the anticipated £60,000-80,000 guide and much to the delight of auctioneers Clive Emson.

The three bedroom cottage with garden space was sold freehold with vacant possession and contested at auction by several bidders.

Scott Gray, auctioneer and regular on BBC1’s Homes Under The Hammer, said:
