* Registration * Under the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 we are now required to take identification for all persons intending to bid on a lot and each additional person to be named on the sale contract. If the buyer’s details are different from the successful bidder’s then proof of identity for both the buyer and the bidder will be required. Please try to arrive thirty minutes prior to the start of the auction and go to the reception area where a member of TW Gaze will take a copy of your identification. Identification should be in the form of the photo page of your passport or photo driving licence. In addition, a recent utility bill or bank statement (within the last three months) with your name and address on it is required. For those bidding remotely, please email your identification when submitting your completed proxy bidding form. Printed and online catalogue This catalogue contains details about properties being sold at auction. Those details are subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Please check our website regularly at and look out for any additional materials available on the day of the auction, in order to stay fully informed with the up to date information. Sales particulars Any plans, photographs, areas or schedules within the catalogue, whilst prepared as carefully as possible are for guidance only, are not necessarily to scale, and do not form part of any contract. Although they are believed to be correct, their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Neither the vendors nor the agents nor any person in their employ, give, or are entitled to give any representation or warranty in relation to the properties or any part thereof. Wayleaves, easements and rights of way The land is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing rights, including rights of way, whether public or private, light, support, drainage, electricity supply and other rights, easements, quasi-easements and all wayleaves whether referred to or not in these particulars. Timber, sporting and minerals all are included within the sale of the freehold. Guide price An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is unusual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at anytime up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Reserve price The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction. Liability of the bidder The successful bidder will have entered a legally binding contract upon the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer. Before bidding at auction it is advisable to obtain the legal documents and consult a solicitor. The legal pack will set out any clauses, covenants and any liability for additional costs. Deposit Each purchaser will be required to pay a deposit of 10% of the hammer price, subject to a minimum deposit of £2,000. This deposit will only be accepted by Banker’s Draft, Building Society cheque, personal cheque or BACS payment. For payment by BACS please use:

An Introduction to TW Gaze TW Gaze was established more than 150 years ago and is renowned for delivering consistent professional advice as well as unrivalled knowledge and experience in all aspects of its business. An independent and dynamic firm, it holds dear to the traditional values upon which it was established, but is also at the forefront of new technology to ensure the best is always delivered. Whether you are an existing client or new to TW Gaze, you can be assured of quality, bespoke advice from people with expertise in their field. The areas this fine old firm cover include residential, rural matters and last, but by no means least, a thriving auction room, which offer sales of over 2,000 lots every Friday and 22 specialist Saturday sales throughout the year. TW Gaze is a firm which has grown from its rural roots to a multidiscipline business, with excellence as its benchmark and offering The Complete Service. The Auction Team Land and property auctions have been an important part of TW Gaze’s business since it was founded in 1857. For many years selling by auction was considered almost the only way to sell, but has now become a more specialised, niche market. As economic conditions have become more challenging, vendors need as much as possible in their favour to ensure they achieve a successful sale. The auction process is often the best way of achieving this, as it is both transparent and cost effective, and may well be the best way to achieve the optimum result for your property. The lots offered are varied, including renovation projects, building plots, barns for conversion, agricultural land and amenity land. This diversity attracts a broad range of buyers to the auctions including builders, developers, private buyers and farmers. TW Gaze acts for a wide range of clients, including law firms, banks, executors, companies and private individuals, selling residential and rural properties. Recognised as leading specialists in auctions, they are determined to achieve the best results for their clients. The dedicated auction rooms in Diss town centre provide the only forum of its kind along the Norfolk/Suffolk border. The property auctions are held at least three times a year and TW Gaze is constantly searching for interesting residential and rural properties for inclusion in their sales. Rowena Youngson or Mike Sarson will be pleased to provide a valuation and advice on the suitability of your property for auction. Smaller land parcels of less than 50 acres are ever popular in our land and property auctions and if you have anything suitable please contact Jenna Goodall Browne or Simon Kirk who will advise you accordingly.

Guide Price £380,000 - £420,000 Set in nearly 1.5ac. Good outbuildings. Needs updating and general improvement. Heavily timbered. Grade 11 Listed.

Location Tucked away back from the street and hidden from view. Tivetshall is a small village around 17 miles south of Norwich with easy access via the A140 and 8 miles or so north of the bustling market town of Diss, which has a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in around 90 minutes. To the rear are open fields and just a short walk away is The Ram public house and restaurant. The coastal resorts around Southwold and Aldeburgh are within 45 minutes or so, or the famous Norfolk Broads less than 30 minutes. The Property Mardle Hall is an elegant Grade II Listed house dating from the 17th century with closely studded walls and good quality timbering even within the roof space. Originally a hall house, the outline of former doorways can be seen, and there are other period features too such as the brick floors in part of the ground floor (others may still be covered), wide oak boarded floors upstairs, inglenook fireplaces and period doors. It is fair to say that in recent years the house has been somewhat neglected and now needs an overall scheme of updating and general repair. Outside Set within 0.597ha (1.48ac) which includes garden to the back and a former paddock to the front. This is a blank canvas for a new owner to get their teeth into. There are good 'structural' features such as the rear pond, drainage ditch (this may have been a moat) and various trees. Outbuildings The buildings are quite new and have been erected to support the brewery business run by the owners. They were built to be able to be converted to a residential use but currently they have a commercial planning use. Overall the outbuildings provide around 1,200ft² of space. Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Directions From Diss heading north on the A140 towards Norwich. Go past The Ram Inn, ignore the left turn immediately beside the pub but take the next left (300m) and the house is just over 200m on the right.
