THE asking price of a Grade II listed former antique centre has dropped once again.

113 King Street, known by most as Knutsford Antiques Centre, has been up for sale for over a year now.

Initially listed for sale for £950,000 by Blacks Business Brokers, this price was then cut to £825,000 and has now dropped further, to £700,000 as Williams Sillitoe take over the marketing of the freehold.

The listing describes it as being “one of Knutsford’s most recognisable buildings” and “a historic refurbishment opportunity”.

The Georgian former town house dates back to 1763.

In 1995 it was acquired by David and Patricia McLeod who established their antiques business within the premises but have now retired.

Spread over three floors, the 2,350 square foot property still has some of the original features, such as decorative cornice.

It is made up of 12 rooms, with three on the ground floor, five on the first and four more on the second floor.

It also boasts a cellar and parking to the rear.
