The property comprises a substantial size detached building, measuring a Gross Internal Area of 749.29 sq.m (8,065.35 sq. ft.), previously trading as Morris House Private Nursing Home. We have assumed that the building would have originally been a pair of semi-detached private dwelling houses, which have subsequently been converted and altered for its existing use.

The property was previously registered for 26 residents (initially registered in 1984) but ceased trading in 2018. The property has nineteen bedrooms, six of which have en-suite toilet facilities. There are twelve single rooms and seven double rooms.

We advise that the subject premises is set within a reasonable size plot, measuring approximately 0.29 acres (0.12 hectares), which accommodates secured parking via a set of three single garages to the rear. Additional on-site parking is also available to the front, which can be accessed directly off Eaton Crescent.

We further advise that the subject premises has been granted planning permission for the change of use to eight self-contained residential flats, granted on 6th December 2018 (Ref: 2018/2230/FUL).

The property is situated on Eaton Crescent, which is an established popular residential location, approximately 1 mile from the main shopping streets of Swansea City Centre.

The popular shopping district of Uplands is situated nearby, which offers a wide range of retail and leisure amenities.

We note that the immediate surrounding properties are of a similar age and style and mainly for residential purposes. We are therefore of the opinion that the subject premises is ideally located for its proposed change use to eight self-contained residential flats.
