Elders Estates is delighted to bring to the market this substantial town centre property which has been used as a creche until recently.

The long drive provides good access and parking. There is a small yard in front of the main building. The main garden and play areas are privately located at the back of the site and are divided into separate areas which could be opened into one large outdoor space. There is also a side yard with useful outside stores.

The main building has five spacious rooms, kitchen and ancillary areas at ground level and four large rooms and two smaller rooms at first floor. A garage is attached to the side. The layout and generous dimensions offer scope for numerous uses.

A fire alarm and gas central heating is present.

From King Street, head along Hall St, on reaching the bus station take the first right after Tesco. The property can be found on the left next to Croft Infant School.
The property is located in a central yet private position with convenient access by foot to town centre facilities and by car to the A38 and M1.
