New Auction Rooms Set To Open In Bath

Auctioneum, a new auction house is set to open its doors in Bath later this month. The new saleroom based at Broadland’s Fruit Farm, located between Batheaston and Box, will offer a large dedicated venue hosting a plethora of auction sales each and every month.

Located one mile from the heart of Bath, the ten-thousand square foot saleroom will host a multitude of specialist and general sales including Fine Antiques, Interiors, Collectables and Jewellery. Auctioneum will also provide the city with its house clearance, probate, Insurance and valuation services. Coupled with large and free onsite parking along with picturesque views of the Bath countryside, the Auctioneum team believe they have the perfect recipe for success

“We’re thrilled to be opening our new auction house in Bath,” says Evan McPherson. “Bath has such a rich history and is well known for its antique markets, shops and fairs and we’re excited to bring our unique approach to auctioneering into this wonderful city.”

Auctioneum is the brainchild of the family team Samantha and Evan McPherson. Samantha and Evan began their auction house journey by creating East Bristol Auctions Ltd in Hanham Bristol in 2012. After 11 years, the East Bristol Auctions family has grown into a 30 strong team with a world-renowned reputation.

The company became a member of the Society Of Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers in 2020 and Samantha McPherson gained FGA DGA the highly respected membership of The Gemmological Society Of Great Britain in the same year.

“Over the past 11 years, our business has grown in experience and stature and it is now time for us to move to the next level by creating an additional auction house, Auctioneum .” Our success is fuelled by the passion, dedication and hard work of our team” adds Samantha Homes. “We are so very excited to bring the wealth of knowledge and experience we have amassed to the people of Bath.”
Broadland’s Fruit Farm was previously a long-established fruit farm which then diversified into a local business emporium, farm shop and restaurant which then fell into disuse in 2019. The site is now being lovingly regenerated by the Auctioneum team who are keen to keep the site green and sustainable. The company is already bringing new jobs for the area and is using local contractors and craftsmen to breathe new life into the site with an emphasis on being carbon neutral by 2023 and a huge part of the local city and community.
