AGENTS NOTES Development opportunity - a 2263sqft three storey semi detached Victorian villa with ample driveway parking and garage, currently arranged as five apartments and offered with no chain. Enjoying spectacular city views from upper rear elevations and with much potential to re-arrange, this is a rare chance to acquire such a substantial building in close proximity to both local Oldfield amenities and the city centre. Two studio flats on each of the ground and first floors and a two bedroom apartment on the second floor. Sole Agents

The property is currently arranged as five apartments - two studio flats on the ground floor (one with its own private entrance), two studios on the first floor (one of which has a bathroom across a shared hallway) and a second floor two bedroom apartment. However, there is potential to re-arrange the current layout in various ways. We have provided photos of the vast majority of rooms but please do ask if you have any specific queries prior to booking a viewing.
Each flat is currently separately registered for council tax - the four studios are Band A and the second floor flat is Band B.

The original address for this property was The Limes, 1 Livingstone Villas, Oldfield Park (Lower) and the property is first recorded as occupied in 1890 by James Ernest Mills (corset and stay maker previously at 12 Camden Place and 9 Lower Camden Place). Records show Mr Mills as the manager of the Albion Stay Factory by 1895. Now the home of Buro Happold, the factory was located at the Bayer building on South Quays, opened in 1892 as the first purpose built corset factory in England and was the brainchild of Charles Bayer
