Presbyterian manse fails to sell

By TOBY WALKER

THE auction of a former Presbyterian manse in Grafton on Saturday pulled an impressive crowd as predicted but it would seem most who attended were motivated by curiosity.

It was the first time the historic property had been made available on the market since being built by the Presbyterian church in 1875 and was listed with an asking price of $420,000.

But come auction time, the hands stayed down and the property was passed in without a bid being made.

All was not lost though with agents Bailey and Gough First National entering into negotiations with an interested party later that day.

The property had been tipped as one to watch after attracting wide interest during an open day in the six weeks it had been listed.
