THE latest property to be auctioned through an innovative online service from independent estate agent, Dacre, Son and Hartley, has been launched to the market with the sale scheduled to close on Monday November 7.

2 Hall Close in Austwick, between Settle and Clapham, is a detached two-bedroom bungalow, ripe for development and set within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It has a guide price of £295,000.

Located in a quiet residential area, the property offers spacious accommodation, with a garage, garden and parking for several vehicles. The property already has the advantage of planning permission to extend - subject to conditions.

Dacres’ new online auction service offers all the advantages of a traditional auction with competitive bidding, pre-prepared legal packs and greater certainty of sale; but now the facility is available online, allowing bidders the potential to make offers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until the digital hammer falls.

Tom Galloway, branch manager at Dacres in Settle, said: “The online auction is a really exciting development for our business and our clients. This property is perfect for sale by online auction because the potential it offers is so broad and its appeal is so wide. It’s empty, has planning and is ready to be snapped up. I’m sure there will be plenty of buyers keen to bid for this property.”

Patrick McCutcheon FNAEA, head of residential at Dacres, said: “We are expecting a prompt sale of 2 Hall Close. Anyone buying or selling a property like this at auction will get an additional degree of certainty, because once the auction ends, both the buyer and seller are legally bound to proceed with the transaction in accordance with the published terms and conditions.”

2 Hall Close will still benefit from all of Dacre’s marketing expertise and sales collateral, including high quality photography and bespoke sales brochures, promotion via the company’s mailing list, far-reaching advertising via social media channels and listings on, which attracts around 70,000 visitors each month. The property will also be featured on all of the main national portals, including Rightmove, Zoopla, On The Market and Primelocation. Visit:
