A recently closed Shropshire care home with potential for redevelopment, subject to planning, is set to go under the hammer at our next auction. The extended Victorian building at 57 Salop Road in the market town of Oswestry will have a guide price*of £495,000+ in our live- streamed auction on Wednesday 27 March.

James Mattin, managing director and auctioneer at Bond Wolfe, explained that the Hartlands Rest Home, which recently closed, was to be offered on behalf of administrators and we are selling the property in conjunction with Watling Real Estate, with pre-auction interest in the property being considered.

James Mattin said: “This is a vacant 21-bedroomed care home extending to approximately 4,480 sq ft on a 0.15 acre site. It is an attractive character property, originally of Victorian construction, that has modern extensions providing generous accommodation over two floors, with off-road car parking to the rear. We consider it to be suitable for alternative uses including residential – subject to securing the appropriate planning permissions. Several other properties in this part of Oswestry have received consent for residential conversion or development.”

With car parking to the rear, accessed from Stewart Road, and pedestrian access off Salop Road, the property benefits from ensuite toilets to a number of bedrooms. There is also communal living and dining areas, a conservatory extension, communal bathroom and toilet facilities, gas central heating, a passenger lift and two separate staircases to the upper floor. The property occupies a prominent corner position at the junction of Steward Road and Salop Road, connecting directly to Oswestry town centre about half a mile away.

Oswestry is an historic market town with a vibrant, bustling centre, and is Shropshire’s second largest town. The town has a wealth of character and facilities, while national retail chains in the town including Boots, Superdrug, WH Smith, Poundland, Home Bargains and Costa Coffee. Oswestry sits at the junction of the A5 and A483, with links to the national motorway network that provide easy connections to Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. The town lies 19 miles north west of the county town of Shrewsbury and around an hour’s drive from the picturesque Welsh coast.
