Recently closed nursery sold through Christie & Co

Business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of a spacious vacant former day nursery premises in Tameside, Greater Manchester.

Previously trading as a well-established 53 place nursery, this impressive semi-detached, four-storey Victorian property has been converted and renovated to include six playrooms, three children’s bathrooms and a fully fitted commercial kitchen. It boasts two impressive separate, secure outdoor learning environments and benefits from a private car park with on street parking also available. The site is positioned in a densely populated area on an attractive street in the heart of Dukinfield in Tameside, Greater Manchester.


The nursery was previously owned by Mr Michael and Mrs Lisa Jones who decided to close the business late last summer during the first lockdown. After 20 years of working in and owning the nursery, Lisa felt that she was ready for a new chapter.

Birch Lawn has been purchased by first-time buyer, Mr Nigel Lenegan, who plans to re-launch a nursery business from the premises at some point in the future.

Sofia Beck, associate director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “This property attracted a high level of interest from both existing nursery operators and first-time buyers. As the listing was non-confidential, we were able to widen the reach to a larger pool of interested parties. The volume of activity we received highlights the buoyancy of the day nursery market and the emphasis on necessity for early years provision is as strong as it’s been. Vacant commercial premises which have been or could be converted to day nursery use are highly sought after and can often attract a premium price.”

This vacant day nursery was sold at an undisclosed price.
