**** GUIDE PRICE £40,000 - £75,000 FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION ****


75A Worston Lane is set between well maintained 1950's style houses in a sought after location within easy walking distance of Burnham-on-Sea town centre, sea front, local schools, doctors surgery etc.

The site currently has a single storey dwelling for demolition and replacement. We understand that even though planning permission has been granted on the site for the erection of a detached house that due to drains located on the site Wessex Water will only allow the erection of a mobile home.

The M5 junction 22 at Edithmead is a short drive giving excellent access to Bristol, Taunton, Exeter and the M4 corridor. There is a mainline railway link at Highbridge and Bristol International Airport is a forty minute drive.

Auction Notes

Conditions of Sale

Unless otherwise stated, each Lot is sold subject to the current edition of the Law Society’s Standard Conditions of Sale and the General and Special Conditions of Sale for each lot.

Auction Catalogue

The details of each lot have been prepared based on information given by the vendor and their solicitor. There may be occasions where the person acting on behalf of the vendor does not know the property in detail. Therefore, potential purchasers must satisfy their own enquiries and should refer to the legal documents available at either the Auction Department or from the vendors’ solicitors.

Legal packs

These will be available to view at the Auction Department office. Alternatively they can be obtained from the vendors’ solicitors. There may be a charge payable direct to the solicitor. We recommend that each potential purchaser take independent legal advice on the content of the packs.Potential purchasers are deemed to have made all the necessary enquiries and purchase with full knowledge of the content of the legal packs.

Registration of Interest

Berryman's Estate Agents encourage potential purchasers to register their interest in specific lots. This will enable the Auction Department to inform you of any amendments made to that lot during the lead up to the auction day.

Tenure and Possession

Unless stated otherwise, the tenure of each lot is freehold and vacant possession will be given upon completion.


The vendors’ solicitors are usually available for questions prior to the start of the auction. However, there may be occasions when they are unable to attend. Therefore, it is advisable that any queries have been answered before the date of the auction. Members of the Berryman's staff will be on hand and will be able to answer questions concerning the procedure. They will not be able to answer any legal questions. No further questions will be permitted once the auction has started.

Buyers Lot Charge

When bidding for a lot, please make your bid clear to the auctioneer or his clerk. The auctioneer will be happy to take bids in smaller increments, for example £250 and multiples thereof. The auctioneer will call the bidding three times, giving you the opportunity to place a final bid.

Fall of the Hammer

On the fall of the hammer, the successful bidder is under a binding contract to purchase that property. The purchaser must then present himself or herself to the auctioneer’s clerk, giving their name, address, solicitor’s details and a form of identification.


A deposit of 10% of the purchase price will be payable to the vendors’ solicitor at the fall of the hammer. Cash will not be acceptable and Berryman's Estate Agents do not have the facilities to take payment by credit or debit card.
