Birmingham Property used by Methodist circuit
A spacious Birmingham Property in a much sought-after Suburb which was until recently lived in by Methodist ministers is appearing at Bond Wolfe’s next live-streamed auction on Thursday 19 May.
The five-bedroomed detached home at 40 Mackenzie Road in Moseley, which was built nearly 100 years ago, will have a guide price* of £450,000+.
The freehold property still boasts several of its original features, including wood panelling in the hallway, wooden beams in the main reception room and several fireplaces.
Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “This large and attractive house was one of the homes used by ministers in the Birmingham district of the Methodist Church, which is now selling the property.
“We expect lots of interest in the property which is believed to date from the 1920s and stands proudly behind a driveway big enough for four cars, with a large mature garden to the rear.
“The house has an entrance porch, generous hallway with toilet and understairs cloakroom, a dining room, a good-sized lounge with doors leading to the rear patio, a fitted kitchen diner, a covered lean-to at the side and a garage.
“Upstairs is a landing, toilet, bathroom and five bedrooms, and there is gas-fired central heating throughout.”
The former Methodist ministers’ home is one of a wide range of homes from in and around the city that will feature at the auction.
These include a two-bedroomed, semi-detached house with a driveway, garage and gardens at 95 Perry Wood Road, just south of Great Barr, with a guide price of £50,000+.
This property has a porch, hall, reception room, open plan kitchen diner and conservatory downstairs, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and central heating and double-glazing throughout.
Over in Bartley Green is a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house with a driveway, side garage and gardens at 62 Burrington Road, with a guide price of £30,000+.

Meanwhile, a two-bedroomed, mid-terraced house at 4 Springfield Avenue, off Oldfield Road in Sparkbrook will appear in the auction with a guide price of £75,000+.
This property has a traditional layout and gardens, plus it benefits from double glazing, however, it needs modernisation.
Bidders are expected to be keen on a more unusual lot of eight self-contained flats at 3, 5 and 7 Station Road in West Heath, which has a guide price of £400,000+.
These are already yielding rents of £41,820 a year but could be suitable for redevelopment, subject to planning permission.
In nearby Solihull, there will be a three-bedroomed, end-terrace house in the auction at 3 Farm Close, with a guide price of £199,000+.

Another interesting lot is a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 29 Reddicap Heath Road in Sutton Coldfield, which has a guide price of £275,000+.
This house was first sold for £229,000 in a Bond Wolfe auction back in December 2020 but has since been renovated and refurbished throughout.
The property enjoys gardens, driveway parking, gas-fired central heating and double glazing throughout, plus it may have further development potential to the side subject to planning permission.
