Ivy-covered home in Rowley Regis a snip at just £5k guide price
Hidden behind a huge growth of ivy sits one of the best property deals in the Black Country – a two bedroom home in Rowley Regis about to go under the hammer in Bond Wolfe Auctions’ next auction for a guide price* of just £5,000.
The two bedroom semi -detached house at 90 Halesowen Street is in need of modernisation and renovation, but its bargain-basement price tag is likely to attract fiercely competitive bidding at the BWA auction at Villa Park on Wednesday, December 11.
Hard to miss from the street, with its enormous growth of ivy stretching up the front and across the roof, giving the house an Elvis-style quiff, the house is likely to be one of the stars of the auction.
Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “Distinctive properties like this are always a draw and the ultra-low guide price is certain to attract a lot of bidders, both buy-to-let investors and young people looking for a project to become their first home.
“As a result, we are running half a dozen group visits to this property to enable prospective bidders to have a look around and see for themselves just what a deal it offers. People can go to our website – www.bondwolfe.com – look up the page for the Rowley Regis house and there will be a list of the times and dates for the site visits.”
Mr Bassi added: “The property is clearly in need of improvement work throughout, but still offers unbelievable value for money and a terrific opportunity for one lucky bidder.”
The house stands back from the road behind a front garden and has another garden at the rear. The ground floor comprises a reception room, kitchen, utility room and bathroom with WC. The first floor comprises the landing and two bedrooms.
The house benefits from a gas-fired central heating system and most of the windows are UPVC double glazed units.
The Rowley Regis home is just one of 164 lots that will be offered on 11 December at what will be the largest property auction to be held in the Midlands in 2019.
Bond Wolfe Auctions, which launched in January this year, has so far sold 503 lots out of 592 offered and raised over £66.2 million with an average success rate of 85% – comfortably making it the West Midlands’ leading auctioneer.
