An exciting opportunity for the development and conversion of Grade II listed properties in a landmark, gateway site. The buildings are believed to have been constructed between 1802 and 1834 as a warehouse and stables for the domestic framework knitting industry. The properties are of a sandstone construction with elevations beneath a pitched slate clad roof. The main warehouse is in a simple rectangular form with accommodation set over three floors either side of a central lobby area. It is understood that c1930-1970 the building was stripped back to stone shell and the northern section converted to offices and a canteen. Within the southern half, part of the internal floors were removed and a steel frame installed to support oil manufacturing pipework and vessels. In this time all windows in the southern section were removed and replaced with dummy painted timber panels. The detached stable block is two storey and benefits from an extended frontage onto the A6. The site was lastly occupied by Silkolene lubricants and has been vacant for a considerable number of years. As a result of systematic breakin's and theft the buildings have fallen into a state of disrepair and are uninhabitable without major work.
Planning and Development information:The Grade II listed site is located within the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site and Belper conservation area. It is allocated as a mixed use development area and a scheme has recently been proposed reflecting the conversion of the main building into 6 x one bedroomed and 18 x two bedroomed apartments. It is proposed the stable block be converted into 2 x two bed apartments and ground floor retail space. Offers on a subject to planning basis are invited. Interested parties are advised there is an undetermined application referenced AVA/2019/0745. It is understood all mains services are connected to the site but are capped.
