ONE of Bewsey's most familiar buildings has been sold.

Ivers Care Services, a registered healthcare provider, has bought the 1,700 sq ft building in a deal worth £255,000.

The firm, which also has offices in Birmingham, Sheffield and Middlesborough, will occupy the building which sits in close proximity to Warrington town centre.

Greg O’Hara, surveyor at BE Group, said: “While 2019 was somewhat characterised by economic uncertainty, the appetite of owner occupiers remained strong.

"Each year we see consistent numbers of freehold sales and 2019 was no different, with just over 28 per cent of all office transactions completed on a freehold basis last year.”

Greg added: “We achieved £150 per sq ft for the sale of 1 Froghall Lane, which further demonstrates that owner occupier demand is strong in Warrington.”

BE Group acted as sole agents on behalf of Walter Carefoot & Sons.
