Do you have a property to sell or let?

A historic former lodge house for sale by auction was once part of a 200-year-old Black Country manor house estate is up for grabs at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction at Villa Park in Birmingham on Wednesday 3 July.
The Main Lodge is a Grade II-listed property at the gateway to the former Lawnswood House estate near Wordsley and comes with a guide price* of just £125,000+.

The two-bedroomed home, which lies off the main A449 around a mile-and-a-half north of Stourton, was a later addition to the Regency manor house originally built for the wealthy Foley family.

The main house, which was completed in 1816 and was also once owned by famous Black Country car manufacturer Jack Bean, has been converted into a newly opened pub called The Roe Deer.
Now Main Lodge, on the edge of Lawnswood’s stunning parkland estate, is on the market – but it badly needs repair and restoration, hence the bargain price.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This is a lovely little house and with such a competitive starting price it is likely to be very popular with a wide range of bidders.

“It was built in 1839 in a matching style to the main house and comes with a hexagonal cellar, a ground floor sitting room with open fireplace, a dining room and kitchen, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.
“As well as those looking for a historic renovation project to turn into a dream home, it provides a rare opportunity for developers with imagination and style.

“In addition, there is land at the rear of the lodge that may be available at a later date by way of separate negotiation.”

Mr Bassi added: “It is, without doubt, one of the most interesting lots for sale at the auction and we expect considerable interest.”

The Main Lodge is just one of 120 lots in the auction on Wednesday 3 July which can all be viewed here.
Bond Wolfe Auctions only launched in January but has already been instructed on 350 properties this year, and this will be its third auction in a row to offer over 100 lots.

Its first two auctions had an average success rate over 87% which has quickly established Bond Wolfe Auctions as the Midlands’ leading auctioneer in 2019.
