The units are situated on Walton Breck Road in the Everton Ward of the City. The properties and land are between Hartnup Street and Donaldson Street, approximately two miles from the city centre. This site is situated adjacent to Anfield Stadium in a residential area providing significant footfall to the site.
The property comprises four two-story retail units, one three-storey retail unit and the cleared land to the rear of these properties. The premises are constructed of brick with a pitched slate roof. The premises at ground floor are appropriate for retail, leisure and community use and possible office use (with the exception of bookmakers). The upper floors are appropriate for similar uses as well as residential use. The land to the rear provides opportunities for car parking and servicing off street and the potential expansion of the existing premises.
The units are in an overall poor condition and require refurbishment to bring the units back in to viable use. Floor plans undertaken by the Council are available on request. Further surveys by interested parties is also recommended.
