Droitwich landmark under the hammer

One of the most historic properties in Droitwich is set to go under the hammer at SDL Bigwood’s latest auction.

No. 44-46 High Street, a freehold town centre Grade II Listed landmark building is available at a guide price of £175,000.

“It is of great character and could be suited to a variety of commercial uses,” said SDL Bigwood director Ian Tudor.

Believed to date from the 1600s, it has in its time been a bakery, a cake/bread shop and a cafe.

During the mid 1990s it underwent an extensive modernisation and improvement programme, including a modern rear extension, to provide 3,300 sq ft of good quality offices at ground and first floor level including a centrally glazed atrium.

It occupies a prominent corner position at the junction of High Street and the main Worcester Road within the heart of the town centre.

It has been sent to auction by Wychavon District Council.

The auction takes place on Wednesday, October 31 in the Holte Suite at Aston Villa Football Club, starting at 11am.
