North Devon nurseries on the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser Christie & Co has been instructed to sell the freehold interest for two substantial children’s day care settings within 10 miles of each other in North Devon.

The first site, located in the town of Barnstaple, is set in an attractive Grade II listed property with four storeys and effective operating capacity for 75 children. The spacious setting provides a variety of playrooms to accommodate different age groups, a secure outdoor play area, staff area, and all necessary ancillary areas including a kitchen, nappy changing area, separate toilets, sleeping area and office. There is also ample car parking space for both staff and parents.

The second setting is situated in the town of Bideford, a short drive from Barnstaple, and is equally sizable with capacity for up to 95 children. Occupying a Grade II listed converted Georgian house, the nursery comprises several open plan play rooms with stair and lift access, plus a ‘messy room’, soft play room, laundry room, kitchen and office. With a private driveway and car park onsite, the space is well-equipped for parents dropping off and picking up children.

Both sites are ideally positioned in large residential areas to cater for families living locally and parents travelling to work in the surrounding areas. 

Carolyn Quinn, Business Agent at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “Claire’s children’s day nurseries represent a fantastic opportunity and will attract a range of buyers with varying levels of experience due to huge potential to regrow and expand the historically successful business that once occupied both settings.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers in excess of £1,300,000 for the group of two settings. Sale of the settings individually will also be considered.
