A FORMER Georgian town house in Kidderminster could be set for major redevelopment by a new owner after it goes under the hammer.

The Grade II-listed building was converted for use as offices in recent decades but is lined up for a return to its original residential use, as it is being sold with existing planning permission for conversion into 12 apartments.

The three-storey property at 27 Church Street, Kidderminster, is listed with a guide price of £275,000.

The property could attract bidding interest from investors and developers from across the country at Bond Wolfe’s online auction on Wednesday October 20.

Built in the mid-18th century and used as a home by a succession of prosperous families, the building was converted to offices in the middle of the last century.

It currently comprises a three-storey building fronting the street with a two-storey rear wing, courtyard and car parking area.

The property extends to around 3,682 sq ft and the planning permission proposes creating eight apartments within the existing building and four further apartments in a new building to the rear.

Ian Tudor, joint managing director auctions at Bond Wolfe, said: “This property represents an excellent investment and development opportunity in a historic area of Kidderminster town centre.

“This is an attractive Grade II-listed building with planning permission to develop 12 one-bedroom apartments in the town centre, with a guide price that offers remarkable value for an opportunity of this kind.

“We are predicting highly competitive bidding when this lot comes under the hammer.”

The auction will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe’s website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only.
