A bumper July auction

Symonds & Sampson’s July collective property auction is the biggest of the year so far, with an enticing array of property across the region and beyond.

A bumper July auction

The lots on offer will appeal to home owners, farmers, developers and investors, with a few ‘wild cards’ thrown in for speculators and those seeking peace and tranquillity in the countryside.


Just under 100 acres will be offered for sale, in lots from a third to over 50 acres in size. 

  • Small riverside parcels of land in West Dorset to enjoy - or which could have future development potential STPP
  • pastureland in South Somerset and the Cranborne Chase may suit local residents or land owners
  • a site currently used as a hobby farm on the outskirts of Poole
  • 2 parcels of woodland will appeal to conservationists, one in West Dorset includes water meadows on the River Frome, whilst the one near Ringwood includes a shepherd’s hut!
  • A 52 acre farm near Gillingham has a fine house, buildings with permission to convert to 2 dwellings, stables, outbuildings and a chalet – all in a glorious position within the Blackmore Vale


The auction includes a variety of properties for modernisation, sites for self-builders, and opportunities for developers,

  • Building plots in Weymouth, within the grounds of a 2 bedroom cottage in Zeals, a partially built house for completion in South Somerset, and the rare chance to build two houses in rural North Dorset
  • Houses for renovation in Ilminster, Merriott (below), Winterborne Houghton and Wool

  • A Grade II Listed apartment close to the harbour side and a single garage in Poole
  • A house in 2.21 acres for modernisation near Templecombe
  • On the market for the first time in nearly 100 years, a charming Grade II Listed house with outbuildings in just under 1 acre in the sought after village of Swallowcliffe near Tisbury (main picture)
  • 3 properties in Wembley are offered subject to an occupier in occupation – a tempting offer for an investor.


Two freehold properties in the centre of the market town of Blandford Forum currently have retail to the ground floor and residential accommodation above; both offer redevelopment possibilities, one had potential for development to the rear (STPP).
