Description
This is a rare opportunity to acquire an exquisite former convent situated in the sought-after Lancashire town of Leyland, which lies approximately six miles south of the city of Preston.

The convent occupies an idyllic setting approached via a private gated driveway within a desirable and established residential area, yet is just a short walk from Leyland train station with the town’s major commuter routes and the (M6) and connecting motorway network close at hand.

The substantial and imposing detached five-bedroom residence dates back to the 1920’s and retains a wealth of charm and character with many original period features.

In former years the property was occupied by the nuns of the Convent of Our Lady of The Missions, however, planning permission was granted in 2017 to create a 46 all en-suite bedroom care home, retaining the original dwelling with the addition of a three-storey extension.

The groundworks for the extension are completed and all mains services, drainage and utilities are in place, which would therefore enable a purchaser the opportunity to complete the build within a short time frame. Plans of the proposed extention are available upon request.

We understand there is strong demand for quality residential care within the town and the vendor advises anticipated weekly fees are expected to be greater than £650 per resident. This would therefore equate to a potential income of £1,350,000 operating at 85% occupancy.

The exquisite property commands an imposing position with extensive enclosed garden areas which we understand are approaching an acre. Due to the extent of the site there could be the opportunity to construct additional dwellings such as supported living and a day care facility, subject to obtaining the relevant local authority planning permission.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a substantial and impressive detached freehold period property, offering a fantastic opportunity for a corporate opera
