Heywood Hall is a Grade II Listed Property which comprises a former school house dating back to the late 1800s now converted into office use. The property once sat within the grounds of St Augustine’s Church, positioned just 100ft from the subject property. Heywood Hall is of structural brick construction with missionary windows and decorative stone detailing contained beneath a pitched clay tiled roof with a feature single steeple.
The building was remodelled and converted into office space in 1998 and is predominantly contained over two storeys with part three storey sections. Fenestration throughout are generally of timber frame with a combination of single and double glazing whilst rainwater goods are generally metal fittings.
Internally the ground floor comprises an entrance hall with reception area, open plan office with glass partitioned meeting room, a number of ancillary offices and an archive room. There is also a staff kitchen and WC facilities. Additionally, there is an external brick built store accessed from a small rear courtyard.
Much of the first floor level forms part of the old Church Hall and is built on a steel frame, connecting to original upper floor levels on either side. The upper levels are accessed via three staircases; one from the entrance and one to each end of the building.
At first floor level is a large, open plan office that spans much of the building. In turn, there is a smaller office and a board room. At second floor level are two offices, divided by a wood panelled partition wall.
Externally, the property is situated immediately adjacent to St Augustine’s Church. It is accessed via Moorcock Avenue and a large, enclosed car park which is tarmacadam surfaced and provides parking for circa 15 vehicles. There is also a small garden area to the front of the building fronting Manchester Road.
