A very rare opportunity to purchase a former pumping station with residential planning permission granted. (See Notes). The property was built around 1937 by Colchester Borough Corporation and reportedly pumped upto 790,000 gallons per day. Suffice to say that this is a very "sturdy" building that has been engineered on an almost industrial scale.
The property is incredibly versatile and has numerous interesting and attractive features including vaulted ceilings and 17 large arched windows in the majority of rooms.
Planning permissions has also been granted for the building to be extended to the rear. For further information please contact our office.
