Full Details

Quirkiness combined with opportunity
This intriguing two storey building of conventional construction, situated in the core area of old Heaton Moor, has had various uses in its long history including an insurance business and opticians to name but two, with a title deed that dates back to the late eighteenth century.
It sits in a popular residential location and therein lies the intrigue. Using the process of permitted development but balancing this with the Conservation area setting, the strong possibility exists for it to become a dwelling, a small but intriguing one with the likelihood of an upside-down living arrangement, a pleasing outcome. The fact that the building is also unattached to another residential property will also add to the appeal.
Currently there is a car space on the forecourt, but this could become a small garden area with additional privacy arrangements. It should be noted that as the living space is under 400 square feet, not all lenders will consider the project suitable security for mortgage purposes. In any event we will be looking for cash purchasers or finance house resources to constitute a legitimate interest.
The fact remains that it is an excellent location, has kerb appeal and is convenient for all amenities. Additionally, because of its current commercial categorisation our clients are happy to sell to a suitable party for this function also. To assist with the process the property can be sold subject to change of use to a suitable option.
