About this property

  • The property comprises a period, two storey property, set within mature gardens. The property is currently used as the Headquarters for The Vegetarian Society who are in the process of relocating. The property is therefore laid out as offices, training kitchen and associated store spaces. The
    property is assessed to extend to approximately 10,345 sq ft (961.1 sq m) over basement, ground and one upper floor. The property is set within grounds of approximately 1.41 acres (0.57 hectares).

    Whilst the property has been utilised for office space, many of the period features remain in the building including original fireplaces, architraves and window details. The property was also extended several years ago to accommodate the training kitchen and additional office space at first floor level.

    It is envisaged that the property could be re-developed for a range of uses with the possibility to consider a single or multi-unit conversion of the building, or a more holistic redevelopment, subject to the necessary consents.

    The property is not listed, however it is located in the Devisdale Conservation Area.


    Under the jurisdiction of Trafford Borough Council, the site
    could be considered for a range of development options,
    subject to gaining the necessary planning consents.
    Trafford is currently operating under the Trafford
    Core Strategy and revised Trafford UDP. Whilst these
    frameworks remain enforceable, Trafford is also part of the
    “Places for Everyone” plan for Greater Manchester which
    is due for potential adoption through 2023.
    Despite the imminent changes, the pertinent policies
    indicate that the property could:
    - Be retained as commercial use under class “E;”
    - Be converted/ subdivided for open market/
    affordable housing;
    - Be converted for a Care Home/ Retirement Living

    A demolition of the property is likely to need significant
    justification, however all offers will be judged on their

    View payable Stamp Duty for this property

This is a fabulous building that still retains a wealth of character, offering huge potential.
