The Ministry of Justice has appointed the Manchester office of Bilfinger GVA to sell the grade two-listed former Knutsford Crown Court in Toft Road.
Built in 1818 and designed by architect George Moneypenny, the Sessions House is a three-storey Georgian sandstone property, with original internal and external crown court features, including high decorated ceilings and wood panelled walls.
The building is 18,500 sq ft within a 0.82 acre site.
The property has been vacant since the Ministry of Justice closed the court in November 2014.
Bilfinger GVA, the sole agent for the building, is marketing the freehold of the Sessions House in its current original form and will be seeking interest from potential purchasers for a range of alternate uses.
David Thwaites, associate of Bilfinger GVA, said: “The Sessions House offers a unique opportunity to own and become the guardian of an historical building within the heart of Knutsford town centre. In view of the buildings undoubted character and history coupled with its prominent location we are anticipating a high level of demand for a wide range of alternate uses.”
