Homely plans for derelict takeaway

Friday 15 September 2023

A former takeaway restaurant in the heart of St Peter Port's Old Quarter could be redeveloped as a family home after planning permission was granted.

Cooper Brouard is selling the former 'Hong Kong' Chinese takeaway at Mansell Court which has been empty for many years.

The approved planning permission allows the building to be redeveloped into a three bedroom dwelling with a garage.

Photographs show the inside of the former takeaway and the living quarters above with a circular staircase connecting each of the floors.

It's apparent that some work has already been carried out to the interior of the building with photographs provided by Cooper Brouard showing building apparatus in some of the cleared rooms along with new flooring panels installed on some floors and packets of floor boards waiting to be installed.

Local Market Negotiator at Cooper Brouard, Ben McVey said this property offers a "great project" for someone to create their own "interesting" home.

"The vendors have successfully got a change of use from a derelict commercial unit into a three-bedroom residential unit with a garage," he explained. "This is a great project for someone to create an interesting town property. We have had a great amount of interest already."

The property is marketed at £265,000 having last changed hands for £70,000 prior to the Covid pandemic which sparked a rise in property prices across the island.

With some work already being carried out to the property to ready it for further building work, the planning permission was applied for late last year and granted earlier this year.

Owners, Cleal Investments Ltd and ArcTech architects produced plans for the three-bedroom dwelling, with kitchen/diner, lounge, a shower room, wheelchair accessible toilet and a garage.

Those plans were passed in April with the only conditions stating that work must start within three years and must follow the permissions requested and granted.
