Rare opportunity to snap up a development site in Little Aston

A Little Aston development site with planning permission for a 22 bedroomed care facility is to be sold by auction in SDL Auctions Bigwood’s next auction at Aston Villa FC on Wednesday 23 May.

House on the Hill, 61 Rosemary Hill Road in Little Aston has previously been used as a care facility and sits on a site of approximately 0.72 acres. It has a *guide price in excess of £700,000.

Gurpreet Bassi, head of residential sales at SDL Auctions Bigwood, said: “It is very rare that a site such as this becomes available in an area such as Little Aston.

“This is a very substantial lot and is a 17 bedroomed freehold detached property in its own grounds that is currently vacant.

“It has existing planning permission from Lichfield District Council for the redevelopment of the site to create a 22 bedroomed care facility, but the site may be suitable for a variety of alternative uses, subject to planning permission.

Although within the area of Lichfield District Council, Little Aston is more commonly associated with Sutton Coldfield.

It is renowned as one of the most prestigious residential areas close to Birmingham and is home to many successful business owners, celebrities and Premiership footballers.

James Bond himself, Roger Moore once owned a property on Rosemary Hill Road.

It is close to Little Aston Park, often referred to as “millionaires’ row”. Prices for very modest properties start at around £500,000 and many of the area’s grand mansions are fought over when they become available, with prices reaching into the millions.

It is also home to Little Aston Golf Club, one of the Midlands’ most elite clubs with a membership to match, and ranked number 33 in Golf World 2017 England’s Top 100 courses.

Gurpreet Bassi said: “We are experiencing a high level of interest in viewing House on the Hill and expect fierce bidding for this lot when it goes under the hammer.”
