A FORMER water mill dating from Victorian times recently used as commercial premises is going under the hammer.

The Mill is a Grade II-listed building on Radford Road in Alvechurch, and will have a guide price of £455,000 at the live-streamed auction on Thursday, March 30.

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of auctioneer Bond Wolfe, explained that the property was thought to have been built back in 19th century to mill corn, and had remained an eye-catching property in the centre of Alvechurch ever since.

Mr Bassi said: “These impressive, Grade II-listed premises extend to approximately 5,108 sq ft of accommodation that have been used for a range of commercial uses.

“The three-storey building is currently vacant and may be suitable for a variety of uses, including residential, subject to planning permission.

“The Mill is located in the centre of the affluent village of Alvechurch which benefits from great shopping and other amenities, and is within the catchment of several good primary and secondary schools.

“The premises are just 0.6 miles distant from Alvechurch train station which offers regular services to Birmingham and Redditch.

“Its location is just four miles from Redditch and 11.5 miles from Birmingham, and Junction 2 of the M42 motorway is less than a mile away.”

The Mill in Alvechurch, which is being offered in partnership with Knight Frank, will be among scores of properties appearing in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which is due to start at 9am on Thursday, March 30.

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