Former Victorian school and small factory in next Birmingham auction
A former Victorian school and a small factory are among the star lots appearing in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction at Villa Park on Tuesday 10 September.
The school buildings at 35 Wilson Road, just off the A34 Birchfield Road in Lozells, Birmingham extend to some 1,341 sq m across three floors and have a guide price* of £100,000+.
The double fronted property, which has off-road parking, was until recently occupied by Kinder Palace Nursery and Platinum People, an employment advice and training business.
Ron Darlington, consultant director of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “This spacious building has a stunning frontage and a substantial history in the area as a place of education.
“With its interconnecting playrooms, offices, storerooms, offices, kitchen and toilets, the property could easily be adapted for various community uses.”
The property, which also has garden spaces and workshops, will be on a new lease for a term of 250 years at a peppercorn ground rent, with a specific clause restricted it to community uses.
The former school has been put up for auction by Birmingham City Council along with a small factory building in Nechells.
This single storey factory and sales unit at 72 Crompton Road, which extends to some 807 sq m and includes parking for five cars, has a guide price of £100,000+.
Formerly occupied by Nutters Fastenings Ltd, the premises include a reception and sales area, a workshop, two offices, two stores, a kitchen and boiler room and toilets.
Mr Darlington said: “This well-located property on the corner of Crompton Road and Long Acre is suitable for manufacture and sales, although it could also be redeveloped as a residential site subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.”
A third lot offered for sale by Birmingham City Council is a freehold parcel of land measuring about 128 sq m in the popular residential suburb of Kings Heath.
This rectangular shaped land adjacent to 81 Grendon Road, close to the junction with Glenavon Road, may be suitable for a number of alternative uses subject to planning and comes with a guide price of £10,000+.
These are just three of over 100 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.
