Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

A pair of neighbouring houses in Coventry, each with planning permission for conversion into flats, will appear at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction in Birmingham on Tuesday 10 September.

The auction will be the largest seen in the Midlands this year, with 140 lots going under the hammer.

The two-bedroomed, semi-detached properties stand flush to the pavement at 180 and 182 Station Street East in Foleshill, and each have guide prices* of just £90,000+.

The properties both currently have two reception rooms, an understairs store and kitchen on the ground floor, with a landing, two bedrooms, and bathroom on the first floor, and a shared yard and garden outside.

The houses, which lie north-west of Coventry city centre and around two miles south of the Ricoh Arena, each have planning permission to be converted into two one-bedroomed apartments.

They both also benefit from gas central heating, and the majority of windows are double glazed.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This is a great opportunity for an investor or investors looking for decent properties where a development plan already exists.

“I think landlords could envisage expanding their portfolios with a quick turnaround on converting these houses into flats.”

Also in the auction is a three-bedroomed, mid-terraced house at 358 Grange Road in the popular area of Longford, with a guide price of £44,000 to £49,000.

This house, which needs renovation, stands back from the road behind a paved driveway and front garden.

Another three-bedroomed, mid-terraced house going under the hammer is 19 The Scotchill near Coundon Hill Park, with a guide price of £110,000+.

This property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing, however it also needs modernisation throughout.

Over in Nuneaton, a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 292 Heath End Road is in the auction with an attractive guide price of just £50,000+.

This lies within half a mile of the George Eliot Hospital and offers the potential for off-road parking to the front, with a dropped kerb already accessible.

Mr Bassi added: “These homes are typical of the range of properties we are offering at our next auction, with something to interest every buyer.”

These Coventry and Nuneaton houses are just five of the 140 lots going under the hammer in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction on Tuesday 10 September at 10.30am at the regular venue of the Holte Suite at Aston Villa FC.

Bond Wolfe Auctions has already this year offered 350 lots, more than any other auctioneer in Birmingham. This includes properties across the East and West Midlands and as far afield as Wales and Scotland.

The first three auctions have raised nearly £39 million in sales – more than double its nearest competitor in the same period.
