Arts & Crafts-style house in Coleshill to star in Bond Wolfe Auctions sale
A detached “Arts & Crafts” style house will be among the stand-out lots coming up for sale at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ remote bidding auction later this month.
Aside from its style, the five-bedroom property offers size and comes with existing outline planning permission for an additional dwelling on its 0.4 acre plot.
The BWA auction on Wednesday 16 September will be the largest-ever livestreamed auction to be held in the UK and starts at the earlier time of 9am to accommodate the 214 lots, with potential buyers bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only.
And the house at 108 Coventry Road, in Coleshill, is expected to attract intense interest from bidders. It is listed with a guide price of just £400,000* as it requires refurbishment throughout.
Gurpeet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This lot is a great example of the low guide prices to be found at auctions when properties – even large and stylish homes like this - need modernisation works.
“For those with imagination, who are looking for a project, or developers looking to for an investment with strong returns, this property offers great opportunities – especially with its existing planning permission. As a result, we’re expecting it to receive a lot of competitive bidding interest.”
One of the most attractive market towns surrounding Birmingham, Coleshill is close to the NEC, Birmingham International Station and the airport. It is also close to the proposed new HS2 Interchange station, which is likely to provide a major boost to property prices locally now work on the high speed rail line has started.
The house in Coventry Road offers three reception rooms as well as a kitchen, pantry, store with WC and a hall on the ground floor, with four bedrooms on the first floor, a bathroom with separate shower cubicle and separate WC, and then an attic bedroom above. Outside there are extensive gardens.
