Property description

The subject property comprises air rights above the existing building which comprises of 59 studio, one and two-bedroom flats which are sold off on long leases. The building and accomodation is finished to a good level of specification and the flats are well-presented.

The pedestrian entrance is from Staines Road West and this will be retained for the proposed development. There is a tiled floor in this area of the building and there are two passenger lifts serving the upper floors. The intention is that these will be extended to serve the fourth and fifth floors. There is a stairwell to the rear of the lifts which is used for fire escape purposes and access. There is a further stairwell on the eastern side of the building again for fire escape purposes.

Full planning permission (ref:21/01742/FUL) has been granted to provide a further 14 apartments, subject to a CIL of £225,655.91. The proposed development is to comprise the extension of the third floor and two new floors above the exisiting accomodation. The existing development was completed in 2016/2017 and forms an L shape with parking to the rear which is surface. The original building dates from 1975 and we understand that it has been assessed structurally for the proposed extension. The proposed extension will form a lightweight structure with the fourth and fifth stepping in from the lower floors to reduce the massing of the development. The benefit of the two new floors stepping back from the original building is that this allows for the fifth floor flats to have generous amounts of amenity space. A communal roof top terrace will add to amenity space for a number of the flats. The flats will provide eight, two-bedroom; five, one-bedroom and one, three-bedroom flat with five to the third floor; six to the fourth and three to the fifth floor. The flats will all be slightly different with some having en-suite shower rooms and others a single family bathroom.

Proposed accomodation as per planning permission is in the table below. Please refer to the legal pack for further information in relation to planning.


Sunbury-on-Thames is located in the Borough of Spelthorne, approximately 12 miles to the south west of central London, five miles south of Staines, seven miles west of Esher and 14 miles north of Woking. Nearby towns include Walton-on-Thames and Staines. There are good road communications, with both Junction 1 of the M3 and the M25 being within close proximity. Sunbury rail station is just a few hundred meters to the east and provides regular services to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 50 minutes. Junction 1 of the motorway is at Sunbury Cross, which was developed in the 1970’s to include several high rise commercial and residential buildings, and a shopping centre adjacent to a large Tesco superstore. This shopping centre is opposite Crownage Court and offers a good range of shops and amenities. 

The subject Property is located in a mixed use location and this is not unusual for suburban London. The immediate area is a mix of house types with the roads off Staines Road West being characterised by family housing in the main. On completion of the development we would comment that the flats will be in-keeping with the immediate area. Kempton Park is located to the east of Sunbury and provides recreational outdoor space and is famous for its racecourse which brings tourists to the area on race days. This provides a more open feel to the general area but retaining its location to central London for commuting. The M3 provides access to the south coast and an intersection with the M25 making such locations as Woking, Guildford, Farnborough and Leatherhead within commuting distance. We consider that as Sunbury is a more cost effective location this could be a draw for purchasers and the rental market alike.

*Terms & Conditions

Buyers are strongly advised to read these terms and conditions, and check the Special Conditions and any applicable Addendum, prior to bidding on a Lot. Additional costs, charges and encumbrances may apply for Buyers once they have made a successful bid in relation to a property.

  1. The reserve price is the minimum price at which the property can be sold at auction.
  2. Where a guide price (or range of prices) is given, that guide is the minimum price at which, or range of prices within which, the seller may be prepared to sell on the date on which the guide price, or range of prices, is published. The sale price, whether prior to or at the auction, can be above or below the guide price depending upon market activity. BidX1 and the seller accept no responsibility for any losses, costs or damages incurred by a buyer as a result of relying on any guide price. The buyer must decide how much they should bid for any Lot. All guide prices are quoted subject to contract. Guide prices given by BidX1 or the seller cannot be accepted by the buyer as being a professional valuation for any purpose in accordance with the requirements or guidance notes of relevant professional bodies or other authorities.
  3. Both the guide price and the reserve price may be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these guides are not misleading, it is possible that the reserve price set for any Lot may exceed the previously quoted guide price (as the seller may fix the final reserve price just before bidding commences).
  4. The guide price for the Lot does not include the administration fee of £1,295 (inclusive of VAT) for all properties up to £49,999, and £2,400 (inclusive of VAT) for all properties £50,000 and above charged by BidX1. In the case of a joint agent this administration fee will be £2,400 (inclusive of VAT). In addition, the guide price does not include VAT on the sale price, or any additional costs, charges or encumbrances that might apply to some Lots and/or some buyers. The Special Conditions of Sale of the seller, and any applicable Addendum, will state if there are other costs, charges or encumbrances and whether the seller has elected to charge VAT on the sale price.
  5. To participate in the sale BidX1 must hold a minimum amount from all bidders. This participation amount and administration fee is fully refundable in the event that you are not the successful purchaser. For example, a participation fee of £4,795 comprises £3,500 relating to your bidder security (partial deposit payment) and an administration fee payable directly to BidX1. A higher participation amount may be payable depending on the reserve price of the Lot.
  6. Please note that Lots may be sold or withdrawn prior to auction.
  7. All Lots sold “Subject to Vendor Confirmation” will be subject to acceptance and confirmation by the Vendor. The highest bid will be presented to the Vendor, the Vendor will have to either accept, decline or make a counteroffer, within the confirmation period. Should the Vendor decide to make a counteroffer, then a private link will be sent to the Highest Bidder advising of the offer the Vendor is willing to accept. The Highest Bidder will be obliged to accept or reject the Vendor's counteroffer. The Vendor reserves the ultimate right, apart from the auctioneer, to accept and to decline to sell to the highest or any bidder, without giving any reasons.
  8. No information, statement, description, quantity or measurement contained in any sales particulars or given orally or contained in any webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report, docket or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller in respect of the property shall constitute a representation or a condition or a warranty on behalf of BidX1 or the seller. Any information, statement, description, quantity or measurement so given or contained in any such sales particulars, webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller are for illustration purposes only and are not to be taken as matters of fact. Any mistake, omission, inaccuracy or mis-description given orally or contained in any sales particulars, webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller shall not give rise to any right of action, claim, entitlement or compensation against BidX1 or the seller. All bidders must satisfy themselves by carrying out their own independent due diligence, inspections or otherwise as to the correctness of any and all of the information, statements, descriptions, quantity or measurements contained in any such sales particulars, webpage, brochure, catalogue, email, letter, report or hand out issued by or on behalf of BidX1 or the seller.
