Redditch nursing home grade II listed set to go under the hammer
A historic Grade II listed former nursing home in Redditch is up for sale with a price tag starting at £750,000 at Bond Wolfe’s next auction on Thursday 27 October.
The Cedars were originally built as a farmhouse, back in the 18th century or even earlier, but was remodelled in 1840 by Samuel Allcock, head of a major Redditch needle and fishing hook manufacturing firm.
It was converted into a nursing home in the middle of the last century but closed down in 2021.
Grade II listed, The Cedars Nursing Home, on Cedar Park Road, Redditch, has a guide price* of £750,000 at the upcoming auction.
Ian Tudor, joint managing director of auctions at Bond Wolfe, said: “This attractive 38-bedroomed former nursing home could have a range of uses and we are expecting considerable interest from investors and developers from across the UK and abroad at our live-streamed auction event on 27 October.
“As well as its Grade II listing, the property retains a considerable number of original features, including mouldings and windows, and there is some 17th Century panelling in one room that is said to have originally come from Bordesley Abbey nearby.
“Alongside its bedrooms, communal lounges, kitchen and stores, the building is set in more than an acre of mature grounds.
“Although it could continue as a care home, potential alternative uses range from residential to religious, medical, hospitality or educational dependant on securing the appropriate planning permission.”
Since its conversion to a care home, The Cedars has been altered and extended while outbuildings to the rear have been converted. The property also benefits from excellent car parking.
The Cedars are located in the mainly residential area of Batchley on the outskirts of Redditch town centre, served by bus and rail services and benefiting from access to the motorway network.
The Cedars are among 158 lots due to appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which is due to start at 9.30 am on Thursday 27 October.
The auction will be live-streamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet.
