A far from bog standard property could become engaged in the tourism industry after being sold at auction

A far from ‘bog standard’ south Wales property could have a new life as a convenient base for tourists looking to count their pennies.

A former toilet block in the village of Nantymoel, near Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan close to the internationally renowned Afon Forest Park could become engaged with the tourism industry after years of service to the public.

Privately owned for the past number of years the detached, bijoux property in Ogwy Street, is now looking for someone flush with enthusiasm and ideas to take on the property.

Sean Roper, of Paul Fosh Auctions, is selling the block on behalf of the former private owner.

Sean said: “The former toilet block, to be sold with vacant possession, has been in their ownership for a number of years but is now going under the hammer as they feel that they need to wash their hands of the building. An added bonus in this sale at auction is that there’s no on-going chain for any bidder to worry about.

“But make no mistake this is far from a bog standard property and has great potential for a new owner. And they don’t need to be too flush with cash as the guide price for what could be an ideal Airbnb project is just £19,000.

“The village of Nantymoel is located conveniently close to numerous cycle and walking paths and the Afon Forest Park so the WC could become an ideal base for tourists looking to stretch their legs in the wonderful countryside.”

Online bidding on this and some 80 other properties in the Paul Fosh Auctions December sale starts on Tuesday, December 8 and ends from 5pm on Thursday, December 10.
