LCP completes first PDR scheme in the nW21/06/2017
Leading property investment group LCP has completed its first office-to-residential conversion in the north-west of England.
LCP has created Miller House, a development of two one-bedroom apartments and four two-bedroom apartments on the first floor of a shopping parade in Church Road, Bebington.
The residential scheme is the first that LCP has completed in the north-west under permitted development rights. An offer has already been put in for one apartment while viewings are also underway for the other five.
Matt Pegg, LCP asset manager, said the contemporary-styled homes have a number of high-quality features, including entry phone/video link, high-specification bathroom and fully fitted kitchens plus oak-veneer and carpet flooring.
As part of the conversion plans, it also installed new windows and created foyer access for the private residential scheme.
“The offices were empty for a number of years and there was no interest in take-up,” she said. “Thanks to permitted development rights, we were in a position to convert the space into good quality homes without having to apply for planning permission.
“It was the ideal opportunity to put back into use space that has lain empty for a long time and now that the work is completed, we anticipate quick sales to private buyers.”
Joe Pollard, of Jones and Chapman, which is marketing the apartments, said: “The properties are a testament to the carefully considered planning that took place prior to putting these properties on the market. The apartments have fantastic specification and healthy, naturally light spaces, and are suitable for every demographic – homeowners and investors alike.”
Situated above four shops, including a Co-op Food store and Barnardo’s, the Miller House apartments are now on sale and are priced £115,000 to £125,000. They are being marketed by Jones and Chapman.
