Overview - The sale of The Old Gaol presents a rare opportunity to acquire a landmark building occupying a central position within the town. The building is predominantly brick and flint construction and is understood to have been re-built in 1796 and was enlarged in 1816 and is subject to a Grade II listing. The property is currently arranged as a private residential home arranged over two floors with three further flats on the second floor which are all currently let on shorthold assured tenancies and produce a yield in the region of £17,000 per annum assuming full occupancy.

As well as being of interest to owner occupiers the property may also be of interest to speculators and developers. Interested parties should satisfy themselves of the planning possibilities by engaging with the local authorities in order to gain the necessary permissions and consents. Each of the second floor flats are billed independently for council tax and have there own heating systems and fire alarms.
