Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

A family home in one of Birmingham’s most popular suburbs with “great potential” to extend, subject to planning permission, will grab bidders’ attention at Bond Wolfe’s February property auction.

The four-bedroomed, detached house at 23 Shelsley Drive in Moseley, is appearing in the live-streamed auction on Thursday 9 February with a guide price* of £395,000+.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, explained that the property already had planning permission for a dormer window to the side, making room for an ensuite bathroom.

He said: “Because it occupies a generous corner plot, there is great potential to extend this house further, subject to any additional planning permission.

“The ground floor has a large entrance hall, a guest cloak room with toilet, wash hand basin and shower, two generous reception rooms, a conservatory, breakfast kitchen and utility.

“Upstairs is a landing, bedrooms, a study, and family bathroom, while outside is a garage, driveway parking, plus front and back gardens.

“This property benefits from gas central heating and is a well-proportioned house, standing within a secluded cul-de-sac, close to local shopping, amenities and schools.”

The auction also offers plenty of options for bidders looking for bargains, starting with a guide price of just £5,000+ for a two-bedroomed, leasehold maisonette at 173 Lazy Hill in Kings Norton.

This first-floor property has an entrance on the ground floor with stairs leading up to the hall, reception room, kitchen, bedrooms and shower room with toilet, plus gas central heating and double glazing.

Not far away is a three-bedroomed, mid-terraced house at 11 Shrewton Avenue in Druids Heath with another attractive guide price of just £30,000+.

This vacant, freehold property has a porch, hall, reception room, kitchen and rear conservatory downstairs, with a landing, three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

There is gas central heating and double glazing, plus gardens outside, although there is a need for modernisation.

Up in Great Barr, a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 598 Aldridge Road has a guide price of £50,000+, although again improvement works are needed.

There is a hall, through reception room, kitchen and conservatory downstairs, with a landing, three bedrooms, bathroom and toilet upstairs, double glazing and central heating, gardens front and back, plus driveway parking.

Also in Great Barr is a three-bedroomed, mid-terraced town house with gardens and driveway parking at 3 Meadowside Close which also needs refurbishment, reflected by another guide price of £50,000+.

This property has a garage, hall with toilet and bedroom on the ground floor, a reception room and kitchen on the first floor, a landing, two bedrooms and bathroom with no fittings on the second floor, plus partial double glazing.

Another £50,000+ guide price is attached to four-bedroomed, end-terraced house with gas central heating, double glazing and gardens front and back at 481 Harborne Park Road in Harborne.

There is a hall, two reception rooms, kitchen, rear lobby, shower room and toilet, plus a separate toilet on the ground floor, a landing and three bedrooms on the first floor, with another bedroom on the second floor.

Across the city in Erdington is a three-bedroomed, semi-detached house with gardens and a rear garage at 22 Raford Road, with a guide price of £59,000+.

This property has a porch, hall, understairs cupboard, through reception room and L-shaped dining kitchen on the ground floor, with a landing, three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, although it needs modernisation.

Also in Erdington is another three-bedroomed, semi-detached house at 456 Kingsbury Road, this one boasting driveway parking, a rear garage, gardens and a sauna outside.

The guide price is £99,000+ for this property which has a porch, hall with understairs cupboard, reception room, dining kitchen and utility with toilet downstairs.

There is a landing, three bedrooms, bathroom and separate shower cubicle on the first floor, and then a boarded-out loft with skylight on the second floor, plus gas central heating and the majority of windows double glazed.

Mr Bassi added: “These are just some of the wide range of lots with attractive guide prices that we once again have on offer for first-time buyers or landlords looking to extend their portfolios.”

The Birmingham lots will be among 161 properties appearing in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which is due to start at 9am on Thursday 9 February.
