The long boarded up old nursing home toward the Hoylake end of Meols Drive – The Paddocks – is up for auction with Allsops (note the use of a premium, generic domain name – sorry, but I spot these things ‘cos of my web design job). The guide price is £800,000 – £900,000 and of course the purchaser will need additional cash to do something with the building. The auction listing details:
The property may afford potential for a variety of alternative uses. We are informed by the Vendor that under existing planning guidelines, planning would be considered for a number of uses including refurbishment of the existing building as a nursing home, new build nursing homes development, boutique hotel, office accommodation and use as a single dwelling (new build or refurbishment) all subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. Architect drawings of a proposed new build 42 bedroom nursing home are available from the Auctioneer’s office upon request, however prospective purchasers are advised to make their own planning enquiries with the local authority.
So, we’ll wait and see what happens in our current property market.
