The available property forms the western part of the Ravensworth Nurseries complex. Due to restructuring this part of the site is now surplus to requirements and is being offered For Sale or To Let. Please note the existing Ravensworth Nurseries business is unaffected by this disposal.

The property is located on the northern fringe of Ravensworth. Positioned on the edge of village within 1 mile of the A66 and 6 miles of the A1(M).

The site and building were used as a retail nursery with external plant sales and display, together with extensive glasshouse covered areas, and a café.

The property would lend itself to refurbishment and re-use for garden centre uses, or alternatively redevelopment for alternative uses (subject to planning).

The glasshouses were damaged by storms and two-thirds have now been dismantled. Some frameworks remain in situ, but we would expect these are unlikely to be suitable for re-use.

In the event of a sale, proposals made conditional on securing planning consents for change of use will be considered on their merits. The sale will be subject to the rights, reservations, obligations and title as otherwise referred to within the registered title.

Leasehold terms are negotiable and will be based on the use, length of commitment, covenant strength and extent of works to be undertaken on the property. As the buildings are in a poor condition, if let on an occupational lease, suitable terms will be considered to compensate for making good and reinvesting in the fabric of the property.
