A former Alton pub with planning consent to be turned into six residential homes is to be auctioned with a guide price of £400,000 to £430,000.

The Kings Head in Market Street is among 178 lots listed across southern England and south Wales by Clive Emson Auctioneers.

Mike Marchant, senior auction appraiser, said: “The existing freehold building has consent to be converted to form four flats, with the two outbuildings to the rear to form one one-bedroom and one two-bedroom dwelling.

“The land at the rear is deceptively large with room for parking for one of the dwellings and a private garden for each.”

The auction ends on September 20, with live bidding starting 48 hours before.
