A Bury town centre property has been put up for sale after being transformed.

The Silver Street site was used as NHS offices from the 1950s onwards and last year it was given a makeover with 48 studio apartments fitted.

There is a communal space on the ground floor, as well as extra space for a fitness centre, cinema room and bar/lounge for tenants.

Commercial agency surveyor at Bradley Hall, Andrew Spencer, described the site as a "real gem" as the lot is currently vacant.

He said this will allow prospective buyers to consider a range of commercial opportunities, such as buy-to-let, serviced apartments, single block letting or a mixture.

Mr Spencer said: “Greater Manchester is an area where there is a huge demand for residential property, with the rental sector doing particularly well.

“With the UK’s second biggest city by urban area at its heart and several other towns, such as Bury, in close proximity, it is a really desirable area.

“When you pair that with the different commercial avenues open to the buyer of this property, it’s a real gem.”

The property is comprised of six residential apartments on the lower ground floor alongside the communal areas.

The ground floor features a lobby and seven more apartments.

Levels one, two and three have identical floor plans, with each containing 10 apartments.

And the top floor consists of five units with two of these benefitting from additional space at either wing and there is lift access to all floors.

Mr Spencer added: “This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a property with huge commercial potential.”

Bradley Hall says the price of the property is available on application.
