Village Factory With Planning For Conversion to Five Apartments
  • Workshop/Factory Unit – 517m2
  • Central South Leicester village location.
  • Planning permission for 5 one and two bedroom apartments.
  • Early sale sought


A rare opportunity to acquire a Victorian factory in a central position in the popular south-Leicestershire village of Countesthorpe.

The factory extends to 517m2 (5,564 sq.ft.) and  is situated close to local shops including a Tesco and Co-op. Planning permission has been granted to convert the factory into five apartments.

The village benefits from a wide range of local amenities including a post office, health centre, village hall and primary and secondary schools.


Countesthorpe is a large village in south Leicestershire situated approximately 7 miles south of Leicester and 7 miles north of Lutterworth.,

The village benefits from frequent public transport services to and from Leicester and Lutterworth, and there is good road access to both via the A426 which provides quick and easy access to Junctions 20 and 21 of the M1.

Although the village benefits from a range of local shops there are excellent facilities in the nearby centres of Blaby and Wigston. The renowned regional retail centre at Fosse Park is approximately 10 minutes drive from the property.


The existing factory is situated in the centre of the village on the east side of Wigston street close to its junction with Dale Acre and Central Street.

There is a local shopping parade within 50 yards as well as a public house and a Tesco Express within easy reach.

Surrounding properties are mainly residential but there are further existing industrial units to the rear (east) of the property.


The property comprises a small, vacant factory built of traditional red brick beneath a double pitched roof.

Internally it is laid out over upper and lower ground floors with loft storage above, and extends to a total of 517 m2.

There is a small amount of external space but the building does not provide any off-street car parking for either the current or proposed uses.


Planning permission was granted in March 2017 for the conversion of the existing factory to 5 flats. The planning permission number is 16/1584/FUL and a copy is available in the Data Room.

The proposals provide for 2 one-bedroom and 3 two-bedroom flats to be built as follows:

Unit Beds Area (m2)
1 1 72
2 1 58
3 2 79
4 2 91
5 2 97
Total 8 397





As the property is to be converted, no EPC assessment has been carried out.


Offer Invited in the region of £250,000
