Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

It needs modernisation, but a guide price* of just £20,000+ for this cosy home in south Birmingham will catch the eyes of potential buyers at Bond Wolfe’s next auction on Thursday 27 October.

The two-bedroomed, mid-terraced house with gardens at 1/26 Station Road in Kings Norton has a reception room and kitchen downstairs, with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, plus it benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.

Meanwhile, across the city in Sutton Coldfield is a rare four-bedroomed, detached dormer bungalow at 3 Woodside in Four Oaks, with a guide price of £650,000+.

This property also needs improvement, but its location on a private road in one of Birmingham’s most highly sought-after estates means it will attract competitive bidding.

Downstairs is a porch, hallway with understairs store, cloakroom and toilet, reception room, dining room, dining kitchen, utility, conservatory and bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

Upstairs is a landing, three bedrooms and bathroom, while there are gardens front and back, plus a side double garage with loft and driveway parking. The home also has gas central heating system and partial double glazing.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “Once again our auction has such a wide range of properties for all buyers tastes and investment levels.”

Back to the couth of the city again, it’s a similar case of needing DIY works for a two-bedroomed, end-terraced house at 78 Fashoda Road in Selly Park, which has a guide price of £25,000+.

This property with gardens is located within two miles of Birmingham University and Queen Elizabeth Hospital and has a hall, two reception rooms, an understairs cupboard, kitchen and shower room with toilet downstairs.

Upstairs is a landing, two bedrooms, a bathroom with no fittings that could be converted into a third bedroom and double glazing throughout.

In east Birmingham is a three-bedroomed, end terraced house at 123 Kitsland Road in Shard End, with a £39,000+ guide price – although this also reflects the need for improvement works.

This property with gardens has a hall, through reception room, kitchen, storage cupboard and conservatory downstairs, and two bedrooms, a bathroom, and separate toilet upstairs.

Also needing modernisation is a three-bedroomed, mid-terraced house with gardens in north Birmingham at 40 Elswick Road, Kingstanding, which has a guide price of £39,000+.

This property has a hall, reception room, understairs cupboard, kitchen, pantry, bathroom and toilet downstairs, with a landing and three bedrooms upstairs, plus double-glazing throughout.

Not far away at 15 Melverley Grove is a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house with gardens that needs refurbishment, reflected by its guide price of £49,000+.

This property has a porch, hall, understairs cupboard, two reception rooms, kitchen, open plan side utility area with toilet downstairs, a landing, three bedrooms, a bathroom and toilet upstairs, plus gas central heating and double glazing.

Mr Bassi said: “All these properties needing improvement would make great purchases for first-time buyers with DIY skills or for landlords looking to invest in expanding their portfolios.”

Other properties at the auction include a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 34 Stanford Avenue in Great Barr which stands back from the road behind a driveway.

With a guide price of £89,000+, this property has a porch, hall with understairs cupboard, two interconnected reception rooms, a kitchen downstairs, with a landing, three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.

There is gas central heating system and the majority of windows are double glazed units, while there are front and back gardens, plus a rear lean-to a side store outside.

At the other end of the price scale is a three-bedroomed, end terraced house with central heating at 32 High Brow on the Moor Pool Estate in Harborne, with a guide price of £425,000+.
