For sale by Modern Method of Auction; Starting Bid Price £110,000 plus Reservation Fee. A Grade II* listed 12th Century three storey former watchtower hidden away behind Old Street. Available for the first time in over half a century and requiring extensive renovation, believed to have been constructed between 1233 and 1304, it formed part of the town defences at Old Gate between Galdeford Gate to the north and Broad Gate to the west and considered to be one of only two remaining watch towers left in Ludlow. Hidden away behind the facades of Old Street, and with a small garden to the front and rear, it is approached through an old oak door, along an alleyway and down a short path, it is only then that you see this concealed gem that has stood in this spot for over 700 years. This property is for sale by West Midlands Property Auction powered by iam-sold Ltd.
