Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

A former community police base in the Black Country closed two years ago is up for sale from £150,000 at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ remote bidding auction next month.

The property in Prouds Lane, Bilston is listed as a commercial building but could be converted to a detached home if planning permission is secured, or could be used for a range of other uses.

The large two-storey former police base is for sale at a low guide price* of just £150,000 and is expected to attract fiercely competitive bidding at the auction on Wednesday 16 September.

It will be the largest-ever livestreamed auction to be held in the UK and starts at the earlier time of 9am to accommodate the 214 lots, with potential buyers bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only.

From the outside, the property looks like an ordinary house, with a traditional brick construction, pitch tiled roof and standing back from the road behind a front garden.

The ground floor comprises a hall entrance with stairs off to first floor, two rooms, toilets and stores, while on the first floor there are four rooms which were used as offices.

Outside there is a side gated entrance, a large paved patio area, a good-sized garden and a brick single storey garage accessed via an adjacent private road. The property benefits from gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazed windows.

Ian Tudor, managing director of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “The property is considered to offer the potential for a straightforward conversion to a detached residential dwelling with scope to extend to the rear subject to any necessary planning permission.

“The property may also be suitable for other alternative uses including medical, dental, veterinary and day nursery subject to the appropriate change of use.”

Mr Tudor added: “The property sits in a mainly residential area so offers considerable potential to any potential developer.

“As a result, we are expecting considerable interest in the run-up to what will be the biggest online property auction to be held in the UK so far.”
