Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this substantial investment property in the small town of Waterfoot, Lancashire.

The property, which is currently a motor vehicle repair business has been in our clients' ownership since 1981. Only now is the property being offered to the market due to our clients' desire for semi-retirement. We are advised that the property only is for sale and that our client will vacate the premises once a new buyer takes possession.

The property consists of two buildings, the first is being used for vehicle repairs and comprises of two large workshops and an office. The second is a large three storey dressed stone built building, which is currently being used to store cars. This property was formerly a mill. In-between the two buildings is a piece of land, which is also included in the sale and could provide car parking for approximately 8 vehicles.

A new owner could continue using the premises as a vehicle repair workshop, although it could be adapted for multiple uses. There is also scope to redevelop the property for residential use, subject to the relevant permissions being granted. We are advised that the local council is granting planning permission for development within the area for residential flats/apartments.
