Two historic council buildings could sell for more than £2 million as they go up for auction.

Numbers six to eight Saffrons Road, Eastbourne, are red-brick Edwardian currently containing a total of 22 offices, with a driveway with enough parking for a number of cars.

While neighbouring property two to four Saffrons Road comprises two inter-connecting bay-fronted Edwardian properties with gardens to the front and a substantial parking area to the rear.

Inside are nine offices and eight store rooms.

Richard said: “This is a rarely available opportunity to acquire substantial buildings arranged over three floors which retain many original features, including fireplaces, sash windows and coving throughout.

“The rooms are well appointed and were formerly used as offices by the local authority but would now suit a variety of uses, including residential conversion, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable."

The two properties are expected to fetch between £950,000 and £1 million with their auction at Clive Emson Land and Property Auctioneers ending on December 13.

Eastbourne Borough Council is also selling a two-bedroom flat in Brightland Road with a freehold guide price of £165,000 to £170,000 and vacant possession.

It means that the council could make £2.17 million if all three properties are sold.
