windmills Wray Common windmill auctioned - 19th May 2004

The recent article from The Mail on Sunday on property auctions is now available online at Homes and Property.

It includes a couple of paragraphs on Wray common windmill: At Clarke Gammon Weller's sale in Guildford three weeks ago, The Windmill at Reigate went under the hammer with a guide price of £250,000. Built in 1824, Grade II listed and with an attached granary, it stands proud in a quiet residential area overlooking Wray Common on the outskirts of Reigate. Two bidders slogged it out and auctioneer Jeremy Zeid's hammer fell at £326,000. 'The room was packed and there was a great buzz,' he said. 'This sale proved the effectiveness of auctions. They serve to concentrate interest within a set time frame, create a competitive market place and ensure the deal is concluded on the day.'

The auction catalog still has the illustrated property details, but I guess it will soon be displaced by the catalog for the next auction. The details stated ADDRESS: The Windmill, 66 Batts Hill, Reigate, Surrey RH2 0LQ DESCRIPTION: Beautiful Grade II Listed windmill and attached granary. The windmill offers exceptional views and is set in a delightful elevated location. Now in need of renovation and modernisation. ACCOMMODATION Entrance hall, kitchen, large converted granary/studio, bathroom, large circular sitting/dining room, four further floors, small secluded garden.
