Historic pub converted into flats and up for Bond Wolfe December auction

Bond Wolfe’s December sale is rapidly approaching. Next month developers and investors will be competing for a former pub in Walsall.

In the mid-1990s the free house was converted into eight flats. Currently, it is empty and is suitable for redevelopment work.

On Wednesday 14 December the Grade II listed building will be up for offer with a guide price of 385,000.


The building before the conversion

Originally the site was a timber-framed house owned in the 17th Century by the family of George Hawe, who became mayor in 1588. The building was constructed in the second half of the 17th Century, with timbers from the original house used in the roof.

The family home was transformed into a pub more commonly known as The White Hart. In 1884 development work took place then it was converted to homes in 1994.

Across the first floor and ground floor are eight self-contained flats. Along the second floor is a communal landing that opens into two interconnected rooms. These were previously used as an office and a library, with a kitchenette, WC, and store. 

Each flat includes a hall, reception room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom with WC. While communal grounds, outhouses, and off-road parking can be found outside. 

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “This is a building steeped in local folklore; an attractive and historic structure originally built as a home in the late 17th Century, later converted into a pub and then redeveloped as apartments in the 1990s.”

“It is now in need of refurbishment, with development potential once the necessary planning permissions are secured. It is sure to attract competitive bidding from developers and property investors from across the UK and overseas in our December sale.”

The White will appear in Bond Wolfe’s next auction which is due to start at 9 am on Wednesday 14 December.
