A freehold, mixed-use investment opportunity in a popular commuter village near Wolverhampton is appearing in our livestreamed auction this month.
The row of five shops with flats above, at 9-17 Station Road in Codsall, will have a guide price* of £800,000+ in the auction on Thursday 14 September.

“The property is situated within a busy village centre and forms one of two retail parades either side of Station Road and a Co-op food store within the centre of Codsall.
“The popularity of this attractive village adds to the attractiveness of this investment opportunity and we expect it to attract bidders from across the UK and overseas when it goes under the hammer.”
The parade of shops and self-contained flats also includes a block of lock-up garages and a large shared yard. The property stands behind a service road with parking bays.
There are flats above units 11-17, each comprising two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and living area. Unit 9 comprises first floor storage and office space connected to the ground floor accommodation.
