Full description

The property is located fronting Railway Road, an established retail pitch on the fringes of Leigh Town Centre, close to a number of other shops, Town Centre Bus Station, Banks and Public Houses.
The subject premises comprise two ground floor retail units plus substantial first floor accommodation. The property is a traditionally constructed period end of terrace building with ornate Victorian features. It is constructed of solid brick elevations set beneath a pitched and slated roof covering together with substantial two storey outrigger extension to its rear.
99 Railway Road consists of a self-contained ground floor retail shop with basement storage, which has recently been let to a Hairdressing Salon and is fitted out accordingly to a reasonable standard.
101 Railway Road is an extensive shop/office which requires a cosmetic uplift and ideally an internal reconfiguration, however, has potential to provide open plan accommodation suitable for a number of uses subject to planning permission.
At first floor level, the accommodation is extensive and consists of a number of cellular rooms with the advantage of a self-contained pedestrian entrance from Ullswater Street. The first floor (or even the building in its entirety) may suit a conversion to residential use, subject to gaining the relevant planning and building regulation consents.
