Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

A former community centre in Walsall is one of the properties set to go under the hammer at a record-breaking auction being held by Bond Wolfe Auctions later this month.

The centre, in the Kingsley area of Pleck, in Walsall, is listed with a guide price* of £150,000+ and looks destined for redevelopment, possibly as offices or even as a large home, if the necessary planning permission can be secured.

The property at 1 Kingsley Street, is being sold on behalf of Walsall Council and will be one of the star lots in the largest property auction ever held outside of London, on Wednesday 19 May.

Ron Darlington of Bond Wolfe said: “More than 34,000 tuned in to watch proceedings during our last live-streamed auction event, in March, which was itself a record-breaker. This time we are expecting even more people to take part, with 236 lots up for sale from across the UK.

“This former community centre offers an ideal opportunity for an investor or developer, in the largely residential Walsall area of Pleck, and we are expecting considerable interest from bidders on auction day.

“It is a large site with potential for a wide range of uses if the appropriate planning permission can be secured. This kind of property is proving very popular among investors and developers, offering a large potential return on a comparatively small outlay.”

The detached property stands on the pavement with a side driveway to a rear parking area. Currently it has front and side access on the ground floor to a hall, male and female disabled WCs, an L-shaped through lounge and dining area and a kitchen with fitted units and a gas boiler.

The second floor has four rooms. The property is fitted with gas-fired central heating and UPVC double glazing but is in need of upgrading.

The Pleck area of Walsall has a population of around 15,000 people and is close to Walsall Manor Hospital and Bescot Stadium, home of Walsall FC.

The former community centre will be one of 236 lots listed for Bond Wolfe Auction’s online auction which starts at 8.30am on Wednesday 19 May.

The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe Auctions’ website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only, and bidders must pre-register no later than 12 noon on Tuesday 18 May.

This follows Bond Wolfe Auctions’ last auction on 31 March which raised over £30.2 million in sales, a new record for the UK’s most successful livestreamed auction.
