    An opportunity to acquire an imposing former local Co-operative department store located on High Street in Ogmore Vale. The Grade II Listed stone built building with a pitched slate roof was erected circa 1910 by the Co-operative Wholesale Society as a local department store serving the Ogmore Valley and would have played a major role in the development of the valleys and of interest for its Arts and Crafts influence.

    We understand that the ground floor housed a grocery shop and the Co-op Shop where payment was made, with the upper floors laid out as a haberdashery, drapery and millinery. We understand that the shop closed circa 1977.

    We have been advised by the vendor that the building has had residential status for in excess of 20 years and the vendor currently occupies the top floor as living accommodation. The living accommodation benefits from gas central heating (not tested) via a combination boiler. Access to the living accommodation is from Glyn Street at the rear of the property. The extensive property will require complete refurbishment throughout, including work to repair some water ingress through the roof.

    In our opinion, the building may be suitable for a number of alternative uses including residential conversion for apartments or a pair of large townhouses and/or part commercial/community uses on the ground floor, subject to obtaining all necessary consents. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with Bridgend County Borough Council’s planning department in relation to any proposed uses of the property.

    The property is located in the village of Ogmore Vale with all its amenities and has pleasant views of the surrounding countryside and is approximately 6 miles from McArthur Glen retail outlet, with all its designer stores, food outlets and Cinema complex. A Sainsbury’s superstore is located adjacent to the retail outlet and the M4 motorway at J.36 provides excellent links east and west.
