Neighbouring Edwardian houses in Birmingham suburb to go under the hammer for £69k each - gallery
Both homes have three bedrooms and are thought to have been built in the early 1900s
Both of the three-bedroom homes are thought to have been built in the early 1900s and are in need of refurbishment throughout. The freehold properties at 374 and 376 Slade Road in Erdington will each have a guide price* of £69,000+ in the auction on Thursday 14 September.
Jonathan Hackett, consultant director of Bond Wolfe, said: “This is a rare opportunity to purchase a neighbouring pair of large, terraced houses in what is an increasingly popular residential suburb.
“Both properties need modernisation works, but either one could make a great family home for first-time buyers with good DIY skills, while either or both could be ideal for landlords looking to invest in increasing their portfolios. These houses are in a decent location with the cross city railway station of Gravelly Hill just around the corner, and their attractive guide prices are set to make them popular with bidders at the auction.”
No. 374 is a mid-terraced house with a hall, two reception rooms that were previously used as bedrooms, a kitchen with no fittings, two shower cubicles, a toilet and understairs store. There is a landing, three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, while there are front and back gardens plus a former garage currently used as a brick-built store.
No. 376 is an end-terraced house with a hall, two reception rooms formerly used as bedrooms, a kitchen with no fittings, a store, utility room and side lean-to. There is a landing, three bedrooms and a shower room with toilet upstairs, while outside are front and back gardens plus parking space at the rear. The neighbouring former care homes are among a total of 180 lots that are appearing in Bond Wolfe’s next auction, which will start at 9am on Thursday 14 September.
