The property comprises a former 22 Bedroom care home arranged across ground, first and second floors. The ground and first floors provide living accommodation whilst the second floor includes office space.
The property was originally two, semi-detached, houses but when the use was changed to a care home the properties were combined. However each of the properties still retains a separate access.
There is a large garden to the rear as well as an area of hardstanding formerly used for car parking. This rear land benefits from access to a small lane leading to Barnsley Road. We consider that development of this rear land into residential accommodation could be possible (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).
The property is situated with a frontage to Hagley Road, a principal arterial route leading from Birmingham City Centre, through Edgbaston (where the property is located) and to the M5 motorway.
Hagley Road is mostly used as both residential and hotel accommodation, with the principal retail amenities being approximately two minutes walking distance on Bearwood Road.
The property is available Freehold, which is rare for Hagley Road where mist properties are held Long Leasehold.
Whilst there are no current planning consents in place regarding the property. We consider there are multiple development opportunities, all of which would be subject to planning. These include:
- Splitting of the property and conversion to provide two residential houses
- Conversion to residential flats
- Extension of the existing buildings to the rear
- Creation of new additional accommodation to the rear of the property
Previous plans for an extension to the rear of the property were drawn up, creating an additional 16 bedrooms for the existing care home. These plans were not submitted but are available for illustrative purposes upon request.
