Large former care home on 0.7-acre site in North Wales up for auction from £500k
A rare opportunity to buy a former care home near Wrexham is coming up at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction in Birmingham on Tuesday 10 September.
The purpose-built care and assisted living complex at Plas Yn Rhos, off Beech Avenue in Rhosllanerchrugog, is currently made up of 30 self-contained flats comes and has a guide price* of just £500,000+.
The building, erected in around 1991, also has a guest room and various communal and additional facilities, and is based on a site of approximately 0.7-acres.
Colin Totney, land and development surveyor at Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This property is a substantial two-storey building with various grassed areas outside and a number of car parking spaces.
“While it was built as a care facility, it may have good potential for conversion or development for alternative uses, subject to obtaining any necessary planning permission.”
The 30 self-contained flats in the former care home are grouped into six pods – three on the ground floor and three on the first floor – with each pod having a communal lounge and kitchen area.
Inside each flat is a bed-come-living room, some kitchen facilities and an en suite wet room, and the property also has the convenience of a lift.
Mr Totney added: “Any interested parties should make their own enquiries of Wrexham County Borough Council to explore the planning potential and suitability of the site for any future use or development.”
Also going under the hammer is the former warden’s house attached to the former care home at Plas Yn Rhos.
This three-bedroomed property is a separate lot with an attractive guide price of £50,000+, although it will only be offered for sale if the former care home itself is sold.
The Wrexham properties are just a sample of the 140 lots going under the hammer in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next sale on Tuesday 10 September at 10.30am at the regular venue of the Holte Suite at Aston Villa FC.

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