It looks more like a garden shed than a thriving business, and at £10,000 this former hair salon’s virtues are definitely well hidden.

The rickety cabin on the side of Preston Road, in Clayton-le-Woods, is only 3.7m by 4.3m in size, and barely bigger than the average lounge.

However, the once-bustling hair salon has already had more than half a dozen viewings since coming on the market in January.

Estate agent Peter Gilkes, who is promoting the building, said: “It’s received an awful lot of interest, which I’m not surprised about because it’s an unusual, economically-priced property.”

The business was operated by an elderly woman for decades.

She reduced her opening hours to just a few per week before closing in the middle of last year.

Her son Paul Rigby is selling the building on behalf of his mum.

Mr Gilkes admitted: “The cabin is not in very good condition, but it is capable of being replaced with a more substantial building and it’s in a prime location.”

Prominent main road corner position
Parking to front and side

Long-established hairdressing salon which has been operating for many years, trading from a timber cabin.

It occupies a prominent corner position fronting the busy Preston Road and has the benefit of parking space to both front and side with additional parking in Back Lane.

It provides potential for replacement with more robust structure and reconnecting to mains gas, electricity and water supplies which are laid on and to the main sewer.
