Former UpDown Gallery in Ramsgate to go to auction again

Satis House in Ramsgate

A former art gallery in Ramsgate is to go back under the hammer after failing to sel, at auction in December.

Satis House at 11 Elms Avenue has a freehold guide price of £500-510,000. It was previously home to the UpDown gallery which was opened in November 2012.

In 2016 an approval for change of use from an art gallery to a single residential dwelling was granted.

A further application was approved for the change of use and conversion of Satis House to provide four self-contained flats and for the construction of an additional detached three-bedroom dwelling to the side.

A substantial detached Victorian property in Ramsgate most recently used as an art gallery is to be offered at auction.

It is among 124 lot listed for sale by Clive Emson, the land and property auctioneers, ahead of its next sale.

Jon Rimmer, auction valuer, said: “It is a handsome building with permission for conversion into flats and detached house built on the land next to it.

“With demand high for residential property and this building having permission we anticipate interest from builders and developers.”

The Clive Emson auction takes place on Tuesday, July 23 at the Clive Emson Conference Centre, Kent County Showground, Detling, starting at 11am.
