A historic Sutton Coldfield building, which has been converted into offices, has changed hands in a £1.35 million deal.

Real estate developer Urban Village Capital has completed the acquisition of The Moat House, at Lichfield Road, from Sutton Coldfeld College.  Birmingham-based Urban Village Group is an investment and development business with a multi-million pound portfolio of developments across the UK, led by chief executive Nick Sellman and executive director Kevin Sharkey.  The company will be based at The Moat House, while offices in the main building and adjoining converted stables will be available to rent.  Director Kevin Patrick Sharkey, said: “The purchase of the Moat House represents a major investment in Sutton Coldfield by Urban Village Group. “It provides us with a unique, high quality headquarters in a fantastic location. These are exciting times both for Sutton Coldfield and the wider Birmingham region and we will continue to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities.”  The Moat House is a Grade II listed building located in the Anchorage Road conservation area. It was designed and built in 1680 as a mansion house by William Wilson, builder, architect and student of Sir Christopher Wren, as a home for his new wife, Jane Pudsey, who had previously owned Langley Hall.  For more information about available office space at The Moat House, contact agents Burley Browne on 0121 321 3441. Offices range from 179 sq ft at £385 per month to 241 sq ft at £550 per month.
