A substantial vacant former twenty one bedroom nursing home located within Heaton Village

This stone detached property is formally known as The Orchard Care Home which has just finished trading due to retirement. The property is located in a very prominent position within the popular residential village of Heaton close to Lister Park, providing convenient access to the city centre and Shipley. This former nursing home offers great potential to re-open again as a care home or convert into two large semi-detached properties subject to the relevant planning consents being approved. Drawings have been prepared but not submitted. Further details can be found within the legal pack on request. The house stands within its own grounds with two main entrances one leading to a car parking area at the rear of the building. There are lawned gardens to the front and side. The accommodation is on four levels and needs to be viewed internally to appreciate its true size and potential. There is a lift, two Staircases to the first and second floors with six bedrooms benefitting from en-suites. Further benefits include a fire alarm system, outside flood lighting and gas heating.

Important Notice

The Guide Price quoted must not be relied upon by prospective purchasers as a valuation or assessment of value of the property. It is intended to provide purchasers with an indication of the region at which the reserve may be set at the time of going to press. The guide price may be subject to variation and interested parties are advised to make regular checks for variations and should be aware that the reserve price may be either below or above the quoted guide price.
Prospective purchasers should also be aware that the eventual sale price may be above or below the guide level dependent upon competition, and should therefore not presume the guide to be indicative of the final expected sale price or the price the property is available at.
When setting the guide price, the auctioneers have given consideration to the seller’s instructions in respect of their indicated reserve price at the time of instruction. The reserve price, (the level below which the property will not be sold), remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. The guide price therefore, is intended to indicate the region at which the reserve price is intended to be set. The seller will confirm their final reserve price close to the auction date and if appropriate the auctioneers may adjust the guide price to reflect this.
