Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

A substantial Edwardian residence in one of Birmingham’s trendiest areas will be a star lot in our live streamed property auction next month.

The vacant, four-storey and semi-detached property at 148 Yardley Wood Road, in Moseley, will be going under the hammer on Thursday 14 September 2023 with an attractive guide price* of £100,000+.

Gurpreet Bassi, our Chief Executive, explained that until recently, the property was used as 13 flats and bedsits, although it was considered suitable for redevelopment subject to planning permission.

Mr Bassi said: “This substantial, semi-detached property is likely to attract competitive bidding simply because it is in the very popular suburb of Moseley.

“Moseley village itself is within a mile away and is well known as one of the city’s trendiest areas, with a strong community of independent businesses, shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

“The property stands back from the road behind a driveway and front garden and was previously used as 13 units.

“As such, it benefits from having fire doors, smoke alarms and emergency lighting, however, it is in need of modernisation.

“A developer may choose to continue its recent use for flats and bedsits, or the property could be developed into various uses if the necessary planning consent is granted.”

Mr Bassi added: “The property is close to Kings Heath, Balsall Heath, Sparkhill, Edgbaston and Birmingham city centre.

“Public transport links are excellent with frequent buses to Hall Green, Shirley and Solihull, and other direct links to Five Ways and the city centre.”

The current layout of 148 Yardley Wood Road has a flat on the lower ground floor which includes a reception room come kitchen, a bedroom and a shower room with a toilet.

The ground floor has a communal hall leading to four bed sitting rooms, three with a kitchenette and one of these with its own wet room and toilet, plus a garden flat with reception room come kitchen, bedroom and shower room with toilet.

A communal hall on the first floor leads to four-bed sitting rooms, each with a kitchenette, plus a communal bathroom and toilets.

On the second floor is a communal landing leading to three more bed sitting rooms, two with kitchenettes, plus a communal kitchen area and toilet.

The Moseley property is just one of scores of lots appearing in our next property auction, which will start at 9 am on Thursday, 14 September 2023.
