Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

If you are looking for a project this could be for you. After three generations Emmies Newsagents in Bampton will shortly be closing for good and an application for planning has been approved through West Oxfordshire District Council, application number 11/1810/P/FP to convert the retail premises into residential accommodation. The current owners would like to sell the building as it is to enjoy their retirement years away from the demanding pressures of running a village news agency. The building will then be available for conversion to one magnificent detached period property with off-road parking and outside space to the rear. There is also the possibility, subject to planning amendments that the property would make a pair of semis or indeed a smaller terrace of three. At present the accommodation comprises a double size retail space with small store room behind, a ground floor bathroom and separate shower room, conservatory, kitchen and bay fronted sitting room. The first floor is served by two flights of stairs with six bedrooms. There is a driveway to the side with off-road parking for three cars, paved rear garden, garage and workshop. Altogether some 2,350 sq ft ready for you to renovate and develop to meet your own needs.

Bampton is a bustling village which sits close to the edge of the Cotswolds and is indeed one of the oldest in the area. Whilst retaining much of the character of the traditional Cotswold village it is also a hive of activity, with a multitude of events taking place throughout the year. Bampton boasts an excellent array of amenities for a village of its size with a post office, bank, library, a sports ground and pavilion, an art gallery, two churches, primary school, and of course the Market Square.
