Development Opportunity in Garston, Merseyside For Sale

  • Reference: 2530 E
  • Location: Liverpool, Merseyside
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this large development opportunity in Garston in Liverpool. The property has been in our client's family ownership since 1914 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's well-deserved retirement.

The premises was originally Portus and Rhodes, which was a building merchants, fabricator and electrical contractors, although all the fixtures and fittings have now been removed from the premises. The external forecourt area was once used as a fuel filling station in the 1940s.

The building is in need of extreme renovation or there is the potential to knock it down and rebuild on the site, subject to planning permission. We are informed that planning permission was granted 3 years ago for 5 commercial units, which has unfortunately now lapsed.

This is an excellent development opportunity for a new owner, with endless possibilities; therefore early viewing and discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.


We are advised Freehold.
