Traditional values, modern solutions

Do you have a property to sell or let?

A six-bedroomed Victorian property in one of Birmingham’s most sought-after suburbs is set to attract competitive bidding at Bond Wolfe’s auction on Wednesday 14 December.

The substantial semi-detached house which sits in the heart of Moseley at 33 Alcester Road does need refurbishment, but this is reflected by its attractive guide price* of £440,000+.

The double-fronted property, which could be suitable for development subject to planning permission, opens into a hall with cellar access, with two reception rooms, a kitchen with a pantry and a toilet.

On the first floor is a landing with store, three bedrooms, a wetroom with toilet and another toilet, and there are another three bedrooms, bathroom, boiler cupboard and storage cupboard on the second floor.

The property benefits from gas central heating, fire doors, mains smoke alarms and double-glazing, and outside there is a driveway, garage, front garden and large rear garden.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “There are not many substantial Victorian properties that come onto the market in Moseley with such an affordable guide price and we are expecting this to be a very popular lot on the day.”

There are a wide range of residential lots available from Birmingham in the live-streamed auction, including a three-bedroomed, mid-terraced house at 113 Alwold Road in Weoley Castle with a guide price of £19,000 to £24,000.

There is a hall, reception room, kitchen, bathroom, toilet and utility area downstairs, a landing and three bedrooms upstairs, and gardens outside, but its price reflects the need for improvement works.

This property is leasehold, but it is understood that the freehold is also available for approximately £6,000.

Over in Erdington are two semi-detached, three bedroomed houses at 22 Raford Road and 198 Hawkesyard Road which each have guide prices of £59,000+, although they both need modernisation.

Also in Erdington and with the same £59,000+ guide price is a two-bedroomed, first floor maisonette at 96 Kingsbury Road that benefits from an electrical first fix, replastering and double glazing, although the property needs finishing throughout.

Down in Handsworth is a three-bedroomed, mid-terraced house with central heating and double-glazing at 6 Woodland Road, with a guide price of £44,000 to £49,000 reflecting the need for works.

Back in desirable Moseley is a one-bedroomed, top floor apartment at Flat 18 Pickwick Close, 92 Wake Green Road, with a guide price of £50,000+.

With communal grounds, residents’ parking and a garage in a separate block, this property is could be ideal for first-time buyers or as an investment to rent out.

Mr Bassi added: “Once again we have a great choice of properties across Birmingham to suit a wide range of buyers.”

The Birmingham lots are among 160 of properties due to appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which is due to start at 9am on Wednesday 14 December.

The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet.
