The High Street has many of the town's finest buildings, including the Queen's Aide House and The Crown Hotel built in 1585. Four major motorways which cross Cheshire ensure fast access to the key commercial centres of Britain and are linked to Nantwich by the A500 Link Road.

VENDORS GENERAL REMARKS & COMMENTS 'History and Development'
Initially Globe Works was built as a tannery just before the end of the nineteenth century, and subsequently became a grain merchant's store and shop; then after a period of disrepair forty years ago, it was rescued and upgraded to a high standard as a private residence; was renamed Globe House, and a furniture workshop installed in the single storey wing. Soon though it became a multi-partner dental practice; and in 1992 a specialist educational publisher. Over the last twenty years it has been a high-tech consulting, computing plus networking services centre for the current owners.
The current owners have substantially upgraded the residential accommodation, including the two kitchens and four bathrooms as well as the heating with modern boiler, zone control and thermostatic radiator controls, and upgraded energy efficient doors and windows. The central hallway, galleried landing and wide timber circular stairway, plus all of the maple hardwood floors and passages on the ground and first floors have also been newly added.
Overall Description of the Site, Aspects and Buildings:
The main house and adjoining single storey wing occupy an attractive square, sunny, corner site in the middle of historic Nantwich town centre. Originally constructed in 1893, the main building is a substantial oblong with two storeys along the north-south axis and forming the public-facing boundary of the site. There is access via the west-facing front door and entrance hall onto a cul de sac leading to the beautiful 12th century Parish Church, the market, and the pedestrianised town-square, with its attractive banks, shops and coffee houses all of which are within only a short five minute stroll of the entrance porch.
The southern side of the site comprises the gable-end of the main building, a high boundary wall and secure double, ornamental gate access for vehicles. Inside the wall is a shady 'cloister' facing on to lovely sun-trap gardens occupying the central part of the site. Invisible from Globe House, but only 200 metres away on the southern-side, is Morrison's supermarket with its convenient petrol station and car wash.
The northern boundary is provided by the single storey wing which has a veranda corridor with access to the garden.
The eastern boundary is formed by the blank side of the adjacent cottage and a high garden wall providing shelter and privacy for the central garden with its terraces, water feature, mature trees, and interesting variety of shrubs, roses and perennials.
The off-road driveway terminates at the eastern end of the single storey commercial wing. There is parking for five or six vehicles and a secure pass-coded entrance to the six individual offices which have LAN and Wifi and WAN connectivity for voice and data, a small kitchen, and two toilets. This area could easily be converted in part or whole to provide modern leisure facilities for cinema, music, creative crafts, or computer games, or for gym equipment, hot tub, trampoline, and/or table tennis.
For pet owners, Nantwich Veterinary Hospital and the Barony Park are only a five-ten minute walk beyond the eastern boundary of the property. There are also extensive walks along the River Weaver with pathways, trees and wide-open spaces easily accessible from the town centre.
