The property is prominently situated between a small industrial estate and a primary school on the west side of Church Lane in Hixon, a large village located approximately seven miles east from Stafford and Junction 14 of the M6 Motorway. The A41 trunk road links Hixon with Rugeley six miles to the south-east and with Stone, which is about seven miles to the north-west. Uttoxeter is approximately nine miles distant to the north-east.
Hixon has been extensively developed in recent years as a major manufacturing and distribution base and companies that are leaders in their fields established in the area include Cox Long, Turfmech, Bibby, JCB Power Products, Sandmaster and Abnormal Load Engineering.
The property comprises a detached office building of single-storey flat-roofed brick construction with extensive surfaced parking areas, has been used as council offices for some years, provides administration, workshop and storage space and occupies a site extending in total to about 0.80 acres (0.32 hectares).
The premises are now surplus to operational requirements and, subject to any planning consent required by the relevant local authority, would suit alternative office or community uses, particularly those operations requiring generous parking facilities, and the availability of the property provides an ideal opportunity for a purchaser interested in acquiring a site suitable for owner occupier, development or investment purposes.
