The former police station in Shirebrook on Central Drive is a detached two-storey building with a large car park to the side and rear which could be prime for extension, subject to obtaining planning consent.


Entering the building, the property retains the bulk of its original features while in use as a police station including its reception area complete with perspex screens, interview room, office space and kitchen / canteen space. It also retains some period features including fire places and cast iron gutters, which could lend itself well to a development that retains character.


The property is located in Shirebrook, Mansfield within a predominantly residential area. It lies within a half hour drive of the Peak District and five miles north of Mansfield.


With a guide price of £135,000 plus fees, the lot could provide a dream unique purchase for any property investor.


Andrew Parker, Managing Director at SDL Property Auctions said:


“It’s always exciting to witness the transformation of any empty property but particularly ones that are at the heart of a community and formally used for something very different to residential dwellings.


“With many of the station’s original and period features still very much intact, this could be a dream renovation project for anyone who is fascinated by crime or for developing unique character properties that embellish their original features.”
