Property details

Development/refurbishment opportunity

Salford City Council is delighted to offer for sale a pair of semi-detached properties on a substantial plot fronting Manchester Road.

The building comprises two former semi-detached houses which have been converted and used as office accommodation as part of Altrincham Police Station.

The building is set over two storeys and is of brick construction and is set on sizeable plot with gardens to front and rear.

As a result of the use of the premises as offices, the property offers an excellent opportunity for conversion back to residential use, be it as a pair of semi-detached houses or a single dwelling.

As the property sits on a substantial plot of approximately 0.1 acres there is also the potential for redevelopment, subject to planning.
