Property Sales at Rushden

On Tuesday evening Mr. J. J. Coulbeck, of Messrs. Coulbeck and Palmer, Wellingborough and Kettering, offered for sale in the Coffee Tavern, Rushden, several lots of property and building land. Lot 1 comprised 16 copyhold dwelling-houses, known as Ebenezer-terrace, Newton-road, which were offered by order of the executors of the late Mr. Samuel Knight. The property has large barns and workshops in the rear, and has a frontage of about 433 feet to the Newton-road, and produces an annual rental of £159. In introducing the property, Mr. Coulbeck remarked that it was 27 years since he first began to sell at Rushden, and Mr. Samuel Knight was his first buyer, the late Mr. Charles Bayes being the second. Bidding started at £1,400 and advanced pretty briskly to £2,300, at which figure the lot was knocked down to Mr. Sanders. Two freehold dwelling-houses, Nos. 35 and 37, Church-street, were next offered. These have a frontage of about 34ft. 6in. and are let at £28 12s. per annum.

Two plots of freehold building land in the Hayway were next put up, but after starting at 2s. per yard were withdrawn at 2s. 6d. Messrs. Simpson and Mason, Rushden and Higham Ferrers, were the solicitors concerned in these three lots. Mr. Coulbeck next submitted sixteen plots of freehold building land in the Harborough-road, containing an area of 3,020 square yards, but no bid was forthcoming. Mr. H. J.

One hundred plots of freehold building land on the Spencer Park estate were then dealt with, but after asking in vain for bids upon several lots, the auctioneer said he should be prepared to deal with them by private treaty. Messrs. Burnham, Son, and Lewin, Wellingborough, were the solicitors to the vendors, Messrs. Lilley, Skinner, and Sykes. A parcel of freehold building land on the Hayway, with an area of 750 square yards also failed to elicit a bid. A very large company attended the sale.
