The property is an imposing and attractively presented three-storey unit of brick construction with wall to wall dormers to front and rear at second floor level.

The subject of this letting is the office space to the first and second floor, which is accessed by private entrance to the ground floor off Wilmslow Road and to the rear via a second entrance through a private gated car park.

A common stairwell leads to the first floor where a large open plan office can be found with partitioned meeting room, reception, kitchen, and managers office off, plus W/C facilities. This space may well suit several other uses including restaurant or café use.

The second floor is similarly laid out with large open plan office and partitioned meeting room, kitchen, managers office, and two storage rooms off, plus W/C facilities. Both floors benefit from air conditioning and the upper floors come with 10 private car parking spaces found in the gated car park directly to the rear.
