Countryside development site has international commuter appeal

A property project or development opportunity in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside is attracting interest from bidders in an online auction.

Glen Ellen, Wall Hill Road, Corley, Coventry is being sold by SDL Auctions in partnership with Shortland Horne by unconditional online auction with a starting bid of £345,000 and ending at noon on Wednesday 12th June.

The large detached family home extends to 1,400 sq ft and sits on a ¾-acre plot with outbuildings. However, the property has some structural issues which auctioneers are urging potential buyers to investigate before bidding.

Jason Lee, national sales manager of SDL Auctions, said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for a builder to turn this property into the luxury home of their dreams, or to develop the site, with the necessary planning permissions, of course.

“It’s a good-sized site extending to three quarters of an acre, in a beautiful part of the countryside, surrounded by open farmland but within extremely easy reach of Coventry’s city centre, as well as Birmingham International Airport. This site really does have an awful lot going for it.”

Glen Ellen is less than two miles from the centre of Corley, which has a cricket club, pub and village hall, which hosts car boot sales, craft shows and dancing classes.

Coventry City Centre is a 15-minute drive away and offers major high street store, independent shops and restaurants, an art gallery, theatres and its famous cathedral, built after the destruction of its 14th-century predecessor during the Second World War.

A 15-minute drive to the west of the property is the NEC and the popular Resorts World shopping centre with restaurants and cinema.

With such a central location, transport links are excellent, with the motorway network within easy reach, Birmingham International Airport and Birmingham International Railway Station within a 20-minute drive, although many commuters prefer Hampton-in-Arden Railway Station, which runs services into Birmingham, as parking is easier.

Jason added: “Whether for a luxury home or a development site, this is in a prime location. You really have the best of both worlds here, with beautiful countryside surrounding the site, but international travel and top shopping facilities just a short distance away.”

Bids are already being accepted for Glen Ellen, with the online auction ending at noon on Wednesday 12th June. For viewings and further information, please call 0247 622 2123 or email sales@shortland-horne.co.uk.
