Grade II-listed farmhouse with plans to create two homes at auction for £250k+
A Grade II-listed Midlands farmhouse with eight bedrooms that dates back at least 200 years is one of the star properties in Bond Wolfe’s next auction on Wednesday 21 July where a record 250 lots will go under the hammer.
The Georgian property on Otherton Hall Farm, near the hamlet of Otherton, near Penkridge in South Staffordshire, will have a guide price* of just £250,000+ in the live-streamed auction.
The Farmhouse is currently detached and ranges over four floors including the attic, with an additional basement, and it needs refurbishment throughout.
But bidders will be particularly attracted by the planning permission granted for it to be sub-divided into two homes –a five-bedroom house with a one-bedroomed annex, plus a six-bedroomed house.
Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “This eye-catching property has a lot of history and heaps of character, and is well-known in the local area.
“Depending on what the buyer wanted it for, The Farmhouse could be renovated to make a superb family home.
“Alternatively, it would be a great project for a developer to create two substantial and characterful dwellings, and we expect a lot of interest and competitive bidding on the day.”
The Farmhouse is located off Otherton Lane, about half a mile south east of Otherton, and about 1.5 miles south east of Penkridge.
It is well-connected by road to nearby centres such as Wolverhampton, Stafford and Telford, with Junction 12 of the M6 motorway just 3.5 miles away, and train services are available from Penkridge railway station.
The Farmhouse is just one of the record breaking 250 lots listed in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which starts at 8.30am on Wednesday 21 July.
The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only, and bidders must pre-register no later than 12 noon on Tuesday 20 July.
