Sometimes there's an auction lot that stands out from the sea of run down terraces, empty shops and plots of land that tend to dominate an online property auction catalogue and this cute little building is definitely a property likely to stop people scrolling.

The tiny structure is located in the Penyrheol area of Caerphilly and was once a busy, and definitely bijou, office with a small seating area for visitors and a space for a member of staff behind a glass screen and counter.

Tucked away and yet accessible to a large residential area, a number of parks and a school, the miniature house is going to auction with a guide price of just £16,000 combined with the chance to think more creatively about the property.

Maybe a new owner could consider a take away coffee spot similar to some pocket sized properties in Cardiff parks that have been converted, such as Brodies in Gorsedd Gardens in front of the national museum - see more about that here.

Gemma Vaughan, Paul Fosh Auctions who are selling the property online via their website, says there is already a queue of interest forming in the detached former taxi office. She says: "The possibilities, subject to planning, appear to be endless for this relatively unassuming pebble-dashed property. It currently comes with office area, customer waiting room and a very useful loo.

"Naturally, due to its former use, there are parking spaces outside, there are three, which could make it even more attractive to any new users.

"The office could offer scope for numerous alternative uses including, for example as a hot food collection station or as a standalone take away, niche coffee station, a café, a bijou nail bar or even as a small office."

Gemma states that as well as offering a potential customer base on the doorstep, the former taxi office is in an area that has a range of various amenities and is within easy access of good road links to the A470 commuting to Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil.

The former taxi office is going to online auction with vacant possession on the Paul Fosh Auctions website from 12 noon, on Tuesday, June 18 and ending from 5.30pm on Thursday, June 20, call 01633 254044 to find out more.
