Cousen Road, Bradford


Property Description

Full description

Substantial property which would suit a variety of alternative uses (subject to planning).

Location - The property is located within the Little Horton area of Bradford, approximately 3 miles south-west of the city centre. Access is via a private driveway, linking with Cousen Road to the north-west. Cousen Road then provides access to the A6177 (Bradford Outer Ring Road), a short distance away. The site is bound by a large recreation ground to the west, with Canterbury Childrens Centre and Nursery School to the south and east. The aforementioned access drive extends to the north, on the opposite side of which is Horton Park. Also within reasonable proximity is the Ridge Medical Centre and a Lloyds Pharmacy.

Site - The site is broadly triangular in shape, extending to approximately 0.45ha (1.12 acres). Within the site, the buildings are generally to the south and west, with a landscaped portion and tarmaced parking areas to the north and east. Some parking spaces have been delineated. The site is bound by 2m steel palisade fencing, with a lockable steel gate to the north-west.

Description - The main building is of part two and part three storey solid brick construction, surmounted by pitched and hipped, slate tile covered roofs. We understand that it was originally constructed in the late Victorian era as a purpose-built orphanage. It has subsequently been occupied by Both Bradford College and Askham Bryan Agricultural College. More recently, a single storey hall and annexe have been added to the north-west and to the south-west is the former isolation ward, being of single storey (plus partial basement) construction. We understand that our client has carried out significant roof repairs since purchasing the property, as well as a partial rewiring.

Accommodation - The property extends to a total gross internal area of 967m2 (10,442 sq ft). This does not include basement accommodation and a full breakdown can be provided by the agents upon request.

Services - We understand that all mains services are connected or available. The property benefits from a gas fired central heating system and a modern, mains wired fire alarm system has also been added by our customers.

Planning - We understand that there is some contention as to whether the property is Grade II Listed, and we understand that it benefits from an established use for D1 (non-residential institution) purposes. We are of the opinion that the property would suit conversion to a variety of uses, subject to planning. Interested parties should make their own enquiries with Bradford City Council Planning Department in this regard. The most recent planning permissions relate to the construction of a disabled access ramp, the erection of a security fence/gate, the erection of a replacement boiler flue and the installation of a replacement boiler flue.

Rating - The property has a rateable value of £23,000.

Epc - The property has an Energy Performance Asset Rating of E (107). A copy of this is available to inspect at the agents offices.

Terms - The property is available to purchase for £250,000.
