A HISTORIC town centre office building which dates back to the 1600s is set to go under the hammer.

Investors will be homing in on a late Tudor office building in Bromsgrove when it comes up for sale at an upcoming auction.

The Grade II listed office investment at 1 High Street has been let to a well-known regional law firm for more than a quarter of a century.

It will have a guide price of £250,000+ at the live-streamed Bond Wolfe auction on Thursday, May 16.

Ian Tudor, commercial auction director at Bond Wolfe, said: “This is a prime freehold town centre office investment with a long-standing tenant in mfg Solicitors.

“It is currently generating an annual rental income of £24,500 per annum.

“The property comprises an attractive Grade II Listed building providing three floors of office accommodation, well presented throughout and consisting of a mixture of cellular office space, meeting rooms and open plan areas.

“There is a car park to the rear of the premises, with parking for approximately six cars. The property forms part of a larger occupancy for mfg Solicitors and is linked to the adjoining property, 4 St John Street, which is occupied by mfg but does not form part of this sale.”

1 High Street is one of the few remaining Tudor buildings remaining in the centre of Bromsgrove.

The double gable, timber-framed building, dates to around 1600.

Mr Tudor added: “This is an attractive property with an excellent well-established tenant. It is a prime example of the high-quality properties that regularly appear in our auctions, attracting high levels of interest from investors from across the UK and overseas.”

The Bromsgrove office building is among scores of lots that are appearing in Bond Wolfe’s next auction, which will start at 9am on Thursday, May 16.
