MOT Garage on large freehold

Manchester, Lancashire

Advert ref: 1537nPD

This is an MOT garage sitting on a large freehold plot. There is also a detached, 2 bed bungalow. Quite an unusual combination. 

What this means is that there are a number of opportunities this sale represents. 

1. Business sale with the ability to continue as an MOT garage, add additional services and live on site as the current owner does.  For a younger mechanic looking to build their own legacy business, this is a super location and opportunity with all equipment included. 

2. Trade buyer seeking a 2nd, high traffic location. 

3. Development opportunity for the freehold which could potentially be;

        a) small housing development
        b) drive through coffee shop, dry cleaners, fast food
        c) small office block development 
        d) car sales garage and spacious forecourt 
        e) air B&B or buy to let

Any change of use would need the relevant planning approval. 

This is both a residential home and a working business. Any request to view the business and premises MUST be made by appointment through the agent. 

Wherever your interests lie, make your enquiry and we will be in touch with additional information. 

This means that the site offers further potential as a business, sitting as it does on a main dual carriageway leading into Manchester.  But it also offers many redevelopment opportunities once suitable planning permissions have been acquired. 

Key features:

  • MOT Garage
  • 2 Inspection pits (one large, one very small)

Property Details: Freehold
Asking Price: Offers Invited

Sitting prominently on a dual carriageway just outside Eccles, Manchester.  The back boundary of the site is with City Airport (Barton Aerodrome). 

The AJ Bell stadium is 0.5 miles away and in rush hour there is always passing traffic. 

Premises Details:

As an ex-filling station, the old forecourt is spacious enough to accommodate at least 30 parked cars. 

The garage premises is attractively built offering around 175 sq meters of internal space. 

The forecourt offers a further 1,340 sq meters approximately. 

The 2 bed bungalow is detached. 

Accommodation Included: Yes
Living Accommodation Details:
Freehold, detached bungalow comprising of;

2 double bedrooms
1 living room
1 kitchen/diner
1 bathroom

It is fair to say that the living accommodation is in need of some modernisation but is structurally sound with walls and roof in good order and UPVC double glazing fitted throughout. 

Outside there is a large 4 car garage which adjoins the bungalow. This offers the potential to expand the living accommodation without increasing the overall footprint of the current building.

With the AJ Bell stadium close and Old Trafford within a few miles, this could make an interesting short let property. 

Size in Sq Ft: 1124
Reason For Selling:
This is a genuine retirement sale.
