The auction which took place at The Sunningdale Suite Dunston Hall Hotel, Ipswich Road at 11am on Wednesday saw a bidding war with potential buyers.

Bryan Baxter, the auctioneer started the bidding at £475,000 with a proxy bid before others in the room began holding up their catalogues.

The proxy was outbidden by a man in the auction room who eventually bought the property for £540,000.

Formerly a car breaker's yard, the grade II listed mansion house has stood empty for 47 years and is in need of a complete makeover.
