House & Son celebrate 80 years in business!

House and Son are pleased to share with you the important milestone of reaching 80 years’ business this year.

When House and Son was formed by Donald House in 1939 the core business was that of Auctioneers and Valuers.  Donald’s vision for the business was for it to grow to a mixed professional practice; and that vision, is House and Son today.

We are now two separate businesses; Auctioneers of Fine Art and Antiques, owned by the House family, and a busy Property Consultancy, owned and run by Colin Wetherall and Neil Wren.  To this day we pride ourselves on running the business with ‘family’ values that the founder, Donald House, would have been proud of.

With Colin and Neil both busy at the Lansdowne office, our Winton branch is managed by Sharon Gould and Stephen Ridler, both very experienced property professionals.

Our Lansdowne and Winton offices sell and let all types of property in and around Bournemouth and are proud to be the favoured Estate Agency on Bournemouth’s East Cliff.  Having established our name on the cliff top, we now help clients move and sell throughout the town, and are currently actively marketing properties in the West Cliff, Southbourne, Springbourne, Queens Park, Winton, Charminster, Moordown, Ensbury Park and Talbot Woods areas; to name but a few!
