This charming village property is constructed of brick under a slate and tiled roof. It is believed to date back to the mid 18th Century. The accommodation is of considerable character commensurate with its age with beamed ceilings and exposed wall timbers. The present owners have tastefully improved the premises over the last five years.
The glazed shop frontage faces onto Shropshire Street with a pedestrian access and roadside parking immediately in front of the shop.
The rebuilt Coach House is a significant asset. In 2004 full planning permission (application no. PO3/1457) was obtained for change of use of the Coach House to ancillary residential accommodation. The building has been rebuilt to an exceptional quality. High quality materials have been used throughout and the work was carried out with great care and attention to detail to create a delightful home.

The Businesses

A fruit and Vegetable/Delicatessen business has been run by the owners for 5 years. The previous owners ran the business for about 22 years.
Our clients opened The Coffee Lounge in 2007 and have quickly built-up an impressive trade.
Trading accounts are available for both businesses, for interested purchasers.


The property occupies a prominent central village position in the thriving South Cheshire conservation village of Audlem. The property has a good road frontage with customer street parking immediately on Shropshire Street. The retail area of the village provides a selection of shops including Newsagents, Butchers, Post Office, Co-Op and Chemist.
The village is well known for its church which dates back to 1279. Also of interest is the Shropshire Union Canal which runs through the village, and the former Grammar School (now an old people's home), well preserved and built during the reign of James I.
In the '2005 Calor Village of the Year for England' competition Audlem beat 40 other villages to win two coveted titles: 'Regional Village of the Year' and the category of 'Building Community Life'.
