Highly accessible by foot or road, the property is set on a corner plot in a predominantly residential area in close proximity to local amenities including local parks, shops and transport links. Comprising of three storeys, the premises benefits from utilisable space on the ground and first floor, with an attic and storage area on the second floor.  

Tim Bloomer, Corporate Childcare – Business Agent at Christie & Co comments, “I am so pleased we could help the owners of Hazel Hurst Prep School to find a buyer to take over the school which has been established for over 80 years. We successfully secured a buyer for the property in February after comprehensive marketing and would like to wish the former owners a well-earned, happy retirement. The purchaser is an experienced operator within the childcare sector so I am sure they will do very well in developing the property into its new chapter.”
