Available - Last updated: 04 February 2021

An imposing detached property built in 1907 and previously the home of Lord Nelson, constructed of attractive brick elevations with ornate stone columns and features supporting a pitched roof surface and having been tastefully extended to the side to provide additional ground floor accommodation. Internally, the building is presented largely in open plan with the ground floor offering superb showroom facilities with a range of private offices to one side and a café area with seating to the other. An attractive staircase provides access to the first floor, which is also accessed via a passenger lift, and is arranged predominantly in open plan, last used as a dining area together with private office accommodation and beautifully appointed male, female and disabled toilets. Prior to its existing use the property was formerly occupied by Frankie & Benny’s and still retains a feel of their interior décor and would very easily suit a similar food or bar operator benefiting from the property’s superb location and the abundance of local car parking. Externally there is a private carpark with 26 marked car spaces together with landscaped areas and a large garden area to the rear, which has additional car parking potential.


The property is very prominently located on the eastern entrance to the popular Hough Retail Park development where B & Q, Home Bargains, Bensons for Beds, ScS, Argos and Starbucks are located. In addition to the property’s own private car park is the large and free to use Hough Retail Park car park immediately adjacent. The property is highly visible from Litchfield Road (A34) and is approximately 1 mile to the south east of Stafford town centre. There are a large number of dwelling houses within walking distance together with Alston, a major local employer, Stafford Town Football Club and Stafford Cricket & Hockey Club.


Ground floor: 2,903 sq ft To include: showroom, 3 x private offices and café area.

First floor: 1,630 sq ft To include: seating area/showroom, 2 x privates office, male, female and disabled toilets.

Total NIA: 4,533 sq ft There is also an undercover external store of 298 sq ft

PLANNING - The most recent planning permission (Application no 17/27360/COU) granted ‘change of use from restaurant to mixed use car showroom/café; alterations; outside vehicle display area and parking space and landscaping’.

Interested parties wishing to use the property for alternative uses are advised to contact Stafford Borough Council’s planning department for further advice and information.

BUSINESS RATES - Rates to be reassessed.
