A GRAND Kidderminster home originally built in the 1930s has featured on a popular BBC TV show.

A historic detached home on Roden Avenue, Kidderminster, underwent a modern revamp on Homes Under the Hammer.

Presenter Dion Dublin explored the huge property, which featured panelled walls, a range cooker, parquet flooring and an expansive garden.

He said: “This property may be dated, but these houses were built to last."

The house, previously worth £250k, went for auction in April 2015 and was purchased by local kitchen design boss Kevin and his partner Jane.

Kevin told Dion why he decided to scoop up the property. He said: “I’ve passed it for many years because I live quite local to here. It’s always stood out because the property has been empty for quite some time.

“I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw the board go up."

The property purchase was part of a business deal between Kevin and other partners, with a plan to rent the home out after renovation.

Kevin said: “It needs complete refurbishment and I’m also going to try and keep the original features in the house."

A total of £123k was spent on revamping the property to give the old looking home and modern feel.

The house underwent a double-storey side and rear extension, a loft conversion and three out of the five bedrooms had en suites installed.

House experts said that the house could fetch somewhere between £450k and £475k.

The property was sold for £450k, which made a profit of £52k.

Kevin added: “The outcome has been exactly what we wanted.”
