For Sale by Informal Tender on Friday 28th August 2020 at 12 noon

An all too rare opportunity to purchase an impressive freehold detached property offering just under 400 square metres of workshop and living accommodation within walking distance of the City Centre.

The former Tannery Building ceased its operation as a full time Tannery approximately 100 years ago, since which time its use has been both as general workshop and industrial accommodation, together with, in more recent times, first floor living accommodation.

This is a substantial building with extensive potential usage and subject of course to Planning Consent. The restrictive access is likely to prevent whole scale re-development, however, potential purchasers should draw their own conclusions following discussions with the Local Authority.


The property is situated within walking distance of the City Centre and the River Wye in one of the more sought-after areas of the city. It is therefore quite possible that future opportunities would be available for re-development if they do not exist at present.


The existing accommodation comprises a range of Workshops and Lean-to's together with General Storage facilities on the ground floor, part of which is a Conservatory and Entrance Hall, separate WC and Laundry. Stairwell leading to

First Floor
Extensive first floor residential accommodation extending to around 150 square metres on one floor. Having L shaped Living Room, Kitchen, 4 Bedrooms, Study, Bathroom, the Master Bedroom also having En Suite facilities. The residential accommodation has been unoccupied for many years.


The property is approached over a double width access track with stone surface leading to a large hardstanding for the parking of many vehicles together with an extensive area of garden, all identified on the attached plan.


Water; Mains water is not currently connected, purchasers will need to make their own arrangements for connection. Electricity; Mains electricity is connected. Drainage; A mains sewer runs along the back of the property.
Gas; There is no gas connected.


No Planning Applications have been made in respect of the site, however, potential purchasers should note that it is within a Conservation Area.
