Victorian villa converted to nine flats listed at £480,000 in upcoming Bond Wolfe auction
A Victorian villa in Birmingham’s affluent Edgbaston area, converted into flats, is expected to tempt both developers and investors when it comes up for property auction in May.
The Grade II listed house at 117 Gough Road, in Edgbaston, is a three-storey detached property converted into nine self-contained flats. It is listed for sale at Bond Wolfe’s upcoming live-streamed property auction on Thursday, 18 May, with a guide price* of £480,000+.
Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “As well as being capable of generating a substantial rental income in one of the most highly sought-after areas of Birmingham, this substantial property may also be suitable for redevelopment, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
“A highly attractive property in a popular area, this lot is certain to attract considerable interest from both developers and investors looking to expand their buy-to-let portfolios. We expect highly competitive bidding on the day when thousands of people from across the UK and abroad will be logging on to the website to follow proceedings.”
One of two pairs of attractive, narrowly detached villas built around 1850 or 1855, and the property is being sold with vacant possession.
The building stands back from the road behind an in & out driveway and side vehicle access. There are also gardens to the rear.
The ground floor is laid out with a communal vestibule and hall with three flats. Two have a living room, hall with store, kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom with WC. The third has a hall with a store, a bedsitting room, a kitchen and a bathroom.
On the first floor, a communal hall leads to three flats, two with bed-sitting rooms. The second floor is laid out in the same way.
The property benefits from having a gas fired central heating system, an intercom door entry system for each flat, fire doors, smoke alarms and emergency lighting.
The Victorian villa in Edgbaston is among 184 properties due to appear in Bond Wolfe’s next property auction, which will start at 9 am on Thursday, 18 May.
The property auction will be live-streamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet.
