Farmhouse listed six days before auction

PLANNERS have listed a Guernsey farmhouse, just six days before it was due to go to auction and without the owner’s knowledge.
A notice about St Saviour’s property White Gables being added to the register was published only yesterday.
Martel Maides auctioneer Nick Renny, who will be selling the property on Les Prevosts Road next Wednesday, confirmed they were not aware the building was being considered for the listing, let alone having already been added to the protected building register.
He said he had told the property’s owner after the Guernsey Press drew his attention to the matter and he had also been unaware of the listing.
Despite this, next week’s auction is still going ahead.
It had been estimated that the property would fetch between £1m. and £1.5m.
