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.
