The Cock Inn is a Grade II listed building dating back to 1593, which is being offered with vacant possession at a guide price of £150,000.

Interest is sure to be high for a freehold retail investment on Kentish Town Road in North London, which is let to Sainsbury’s Supermarkets.

The property is held on a 10 year lease from 2011 by the retail giant, producing rental income of £90,000 per annum. The guide price is £1.5m to £1.6m.

A new retail and residential investment on the site of the former Gamecock Pub on Pudsey Road, near Bramley, is also in the London sale.

The development has already attracted high profile tenants including Subway, Greggs and Heron Foods, producing annual income of £78,000. This is set to rise to around £90,000 when the two flats to the upper floor are let. The guide price is £900 to 925,000.

Norton Mill, a period detached mill in Baldock, Hertfordshire, is also among the London lots.
