Short drive to Solihull
Fore … calling all golfers to the next SDL Bigwood auction on Thursday, September 5, at Villa Park.
That’s because Fairway House, 195 St Bernards Road, Solihull, adjacent to Robin Hood Golf Club, is coming under the hammer.
The six-bedroom detached is one of a number of substantial family properties which feature prominently among the 109 lots.
The sale includes nine put up by local authorities – one for Birmingham, six for Walsall and two for Wolverhampton – no less than 13 pubs, nine residential investments, six commercial investments, one freehold ground rent, and a host of houses and flats.
Fairway House is situated in a particularly popular area and has a guide price of £495,000-£525,000.
It is on the junction of St Bernards Road and the golf club entrance.
The property stands back from the road behind a mature foregarden with driveway parking for several cars.
Accommodation takes in a reception room with sliding patio doors to the rear garden, dining room, and breakfast kitchen. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and toilet, and there is also a family bathroom and WC with shower. Outside there is a double side garage and further side car port.
Jonathan Hackett, partner and head of auctions for SDL Bigwood, said: “It is fair to say that the property generally is in need of improvement works throughout, although the gas fired central heating system has recently been replaced and the majority of the windows are UPVC double glazed.
“It is in a great location, has enormous potential and the keen golfer can more or less step out of the door and on to the course.”
