Live Stream Auction

A rare opportunity to acquire this town centre library in the Guiseley conservation area. The library comprises a single storey building totalling approximately 266 sqm (2,862 sqft). It is predominately open plan with a number of storerooms, offices, a kitchen and a WC. Externally the property has a gated parking space. Although the site is unallocated for any specific development use at present, it is thought likely that retail, leisure and health care uses would be amongst the most appealing. A planning statement has been included in the legal pack which offers any interested parties further guidance on the uses that might be acceptable moving forward. The property is located on a busy and well-established retail parade within one of Leeds’ most sought-after areas. Morrisons supermarket is directly opposite and the local train station less than half a mile away. Please note: a completion date of the 13th January 2021 applies to this lot. Any purchasers choosing to buy without viewing in person are doing so at their own risk and acknowledge that the auctioneer will not be held responsible for any issues that may arise due to them being unintentionally missed from the video or sales particulars.
