Long Lease (106 Years Remaining) – SOLD


The property is situated at the corner of School Lane and William Street in the popular and affluent southern Manchester suburb of Didsbury. The property benefits from the amenity of central Didsbury and nearby Wilmslow Road and proximity to excellent road links offered by the A34, M60 and M56, and with Burnage Train Station approximately 1.2Km to the north east.


The property comprises a two storey building of masonry construction, with timber curtain wall panelling in part facing School Lane, with a single storey extension to the front. The main two storey section has a dual pitched profile panel covered roof, while the single storey section is covered with a bitumen roofing material. There are security grilles to ground floor fenestration, which is timber framed to the front with replacement UPVC gazing to the rear.​​

Internally, ground and first floor accommodation is accessed via two sets of stairs, one incorporating the single storey extension. The space is configured by various masonry and timber stud partitions creating a series of rooms, to include sales and reception, various offices and store rooms, kitchen and WCs. ​​

The external areas comprise a tarmac car park, with space for max 8 vehicles, and a narrow access strip extending a short distance beyond the rear building line.


We measure the accommodation to comprise the following:
