Rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, the highly regarded, substantial setting operates from two adjoining, previous school buildings with capacity for up to 58 children, catering for ages 0-5 years. With an array of amenities including age specific play rooms, sensory room, dining room, and an enclosed outdoor play area, Elland is well equipped for a new owner to begin operating immediately.
Unaffected by the fire, the building has retained its structural integrity, with just the interior of the property having undergone refurbishment, providing a fresh, blank canvas for a new owner to put their stamp on. The entire building has been re-plastered and benefits from having new windows, full commercial kitchen, brand new boiler and central heating, fully re-wired and all new flooring and furnishings.
Situated in the heart of Elland, the nursery is in close proximity to the local retail amenities, schools, and public transport links, with the town also offering good road access to nearby towns including Halifax and Huddersfield.
Established over 30 years ago, Elland Day Nursery is well known in the area and has a strong reputation having been owned and operated by current owner, Janeen Turner-Barrow for 14 years, employing an experienced manager and a team of highly qualified staff. Ms Turner-Barrow is looking to sell in order to pursue retirement and comments, “I was devastated when I got the call about the fire and was just grateful no one was hurt. The staff and the parents have been amazing, their understanding and support has helped me through this difficult time. Now that the renovations are complete we can all now look back on this as a positive event. Whilst having to renovate the property, we have been able to adapt the nursery in way that benefits both the staff and the children with a whole range of brand new resources and equipment for children to enjoy for many years to come.”
Vicky Marsland, Business Agent at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale comments, “This is a perfect example of a traditional nursery with a great local reputation. It was terrible to hear about the fire but having since seen the property after its renovations, this is now a fantastic opportunity for a new buyer to build on what are the foundations of a great nursery with a new lease of life and an abundance of future potential.”
Christie & Co is seeking offers in excess of £350,000 for the freehold interest of Elland Private Day Nursery.
