As can be seen from the maps and location plans attached, this site is located in the heart of Hoole, an important and established suburb of the City of Chester.
The area in which this property is located is predominantly made up of Victorian terraces which this property was originally constructed to service as the local corner shop.
The property has a return frontage to an open free community car park and a rear frontage facing a Council owned community play area.
The main property located on this site comprises a two storey traditional brick-built L-shaped property originally designed to accommodate the Co-Op as a local community corner shop.
The building has two frontages to Walker Street, the left hand part of which is currently occupied by Co-Op Funeral Care (an inter-group business).
The former convenience store comprises a broadly rectangular retail unit, having the dimensions specified below, together with rear extensions housing WC, stores and office accommodation.
There is a basement, access to which is inaccessible.
The main property also has a first floor, access to which is restricted (this area has been dis-used for many years and is in semi-derelict condition).
