HISTORIC BUILDING OFFERING PRIME REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY

Description - Large link detached two/three storey building, originally "The English Martyrs Primary School" and most recently used as a residential care home but now offered as a redevelopment opportunity. Due to its favourable city centre location, size and layout, this substantial historic building would be readily suitable for conversion to residential accommodation in the form of apartments or student accommodation and would also easily adapt to other forms of institutional or business usage, subject to planning consent. The building occupies a good sized plot which provides small garden areas and also a good sized on site car park.

Location - The property is situated approximately 1 ¼ miles north of Preston city centre, adjacent to St Thomas and English Martyrs Church and Presbytery. It is a very favourable mixed residential/commercial location just off the A6 and within easy reach of junctions 31 and 32 of the M6 motorway. The university of Central Lancashire main campus is within ¾ mile distance and there is a densely populated residential catchment area surrounding together with mixed industrial / commercial uses along North Road and Moor Lane which directly connect with the city centre.

For identification purposes only the building is more particularly indicated on the location plan attached which is not to scale.

Sat Nav: PR1 6DD

Accommodation - The building is a little unusual in terms of present layout as it currently provides two floors of residential care accommodation with an intermediate section and large basement. However headroom is sufficient to allow adaption to provide four storey accommodation to maximum redevelopment possibilities.

The former residential care home usage was arranged over two floors and provided 18 bedrooms catering for up to 24 residents with bathroom and WC facilities together with large lounge and cellar accommodation. Currently the two floor layout provides approximately 478 sq m (5145 sq ft.) of useable floor area together with extensive basement accommodation of around 230 sq m.

EXTERNAL: The building has street frontage to Kenmure Place and English Martyrs Place and the southern section of the plot provides limited garden facility and also on site car parking for up to 12 cars.

Services - We believe that mains, electricity, gas and water are connected and that drainage is to the main public sewer.

Rating Assessment - The current assessment is to council tax band H. Purchasers should satisfy themselves as to future rating liability.

Planning - We understand that the premises have existing planning consent for Use Class C2 (Residential institutions) of the Town & Country Planning Use Classes Order 2016.

Nevertheless, this property is suitable for redevelopment and given its quality, special attributes, size and location, it would be suitable for residential conversion, student accommodation, or other business uses, but of course this would be subject to appropriate planning approval. Purchasers must satisfy themselves as regards future usage by contacting Preston city council planning department on 01772 906581.

Asking Price - Offers in excess of £375,000 are invited.

All prices quoted are exclusive of, but may be subject to, VAT at the standard rate.
