The property is situated on the Hough Retail Park with prominent frontage to the A34 Lichfield Road, approximately one mile south-east from Stafford Town Centre with neighbouring occupiers including B&Q, ARGOS, PIZZA HUT, SCS and KFC.
The property was constructed in 1907, was originally the home of Lord Nelson of Stafford and comprises an attractive and imposing detached building of predominantly two-storey brick and tile construction with decorative stone facings, twin bay windows to one end and a single storey extension at the other. Occupying a site extending to about 0.80 acres (0.32 hectares), the external areas provide extensive car parking with twenty-six spaces.
The present owner has undertaken a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment and upgrading following the building's acquisition in 2017 but the property is now considered to be surplus to operational requirements.
Although previously traded as a branded Frankie & Benny's restaurant, the building would be suitable for a wide variety of commercial purposes subject to the appropriate planning consent and might be of particular interest to licensed and leisure operators given its proximity to similar operations.
Other potential uses include offices, showroom, children's nursery and clinics as examples. A recent consent permits the use of the site for the sale and display of motor vehicles.
The availability of the property offers an ideal opportunity for a purchaser or tenant to acquire a landmark building located on one of the town's major retail parks with good road communications links, the benefit of substantial on-site parking and reasonably close proximity to the town centre.
