Redwoods Dowling Kerr have been instructed to offer for sale a vacant former nursery with attached 4 bedroom residential property. This opportunity is situated within a third of an acre of land in a quiet and affluent residential area in Shiphay, on the outskirts of Torquay, close to local schools and Torbay hospital.

The former nursery is attached to the owners home, which can be accessed completely separately and which provides 4 bedroom accommodation fitted out to an exceptionally high standard. The vacant nursery had a capacity for 52 children aged between 0 - 5 years of age. There is considerable opportunity available to increase the capacity further by converting it’s 1 bedroomed apartment into further nursery space.

The former nursery has been substantially renovated and redeveloped to include;

• Replacement all all windows and doors to UPVC. • Replacement of boilers. • A complete renovation to the car park and driveway featuring a full tarmac replacement. • Exterior repaint in a special stay clean coating.

In addition to the above it has also benefited from the addition of a conservatory and solar panels have been fitted to the roof. The solar panels provide the highest feed in tariff and are included in the sale.

The outdoor play area has also been renovated, providing an exceptional outdoor play environment.

Occupying 2 separate rooms on the first floor, the main room is 22 metres squared, with the second room being 18.5 metres squared. There is also an adjoining baby change room. All rooms are bright and airy and are well designed with appropriate areas and toys.

This room covers 2 main areas, the main playroom being 22 metres squared and the second room occupying some 15 metres squared. They also have direct access to the exterior of the building, and to the toilets and the dining room.
Pre-School Rooms The pre-school rooms are designed to provide a fun, welcoming and stimulating environment, which supports children’s learning and development before they transition to school.

Within the rooms children are able to enjoy the many well-resourced areas. They can choose to be creative with activities like painting, drawing and sticking, or they are able to be imaginative in the home corner with role play toys. There are opportunities for writing and mathematics. They can also experience problem solving, natural experiences such as the interest area, as well as ever changing

activities in the discovery room. Alternatively, the children can simply settle down and read a story in the book corner.
The rooms consist of 2 main areas and a conservatory, covering 45 metres squared over the spaces. These rooms also have direct access to the exterior, dining areas and toilet areas.

Building External
In place is a large landscaped garden which is fully secure. There is a covered decked area and also a large artificial grass area to enhance all-year-round play.

Additional Rooms The former nursery also incorporates a reception area, staff room, kitchen; a resources store and the main entrance lobby.

There is a 1 bedroom apartment attached to the former nursery. It has the potential to extend the nursery and offer up to an additional 20 places, subject to planning permission.

Residential Accomdation
The residential accommodation consists of a large detached dwelling set in its own grounds within a third of an acre. The building was constructed in block and render, under a multi-aspect pitched tiled roof.

Under its current layout, the accommodation has its own separate entrance and garden area. It also has shared staff car parking to the front and private parking to the side. It benefits from a double garage, which has been partitioned internally by the vendors to include storage and a small office. This is also block and render constructed and under a pitched tiled roof. The property has a paint coating for easy maintenance.

The vendors home is spread over 2 floors and is large and spacious, offering 4 bedrooms, 1 en suite, 3 reception rooms, a small conservatory and a fully fitted kitchen. The property also benefits from solar panel installation and is on the highest feed in tariff. This produces an extra income in excess of 2k per annum and gives the former nursery free electricity during the day.
A recent addition to the property was a high-quality decking feature built in summer 2019.

The vacant nursery property and residential property are available on a freehold basis.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification. Former trading figures can be viewed upon request.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a former children’s day nursery, which is located within a convenient and accessible location. To avoid disappointment, a viewing is recommended.
