Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This Grade II listed property is currently split into two separate units. On the ground and lower ground floor formally was a retail unit. The ground floor of the premises does have planning permission in place for change of use into a residential one bedroom apartment, which would have the benefit of a small walled courtyard to the rear. One of the conditions is that the shop window is removed and replaced by sash windows (drawings available).

The upper 3 floors are currently utilised as a maisonette with the benefit of a drawing room, kitchen, 5 bedroom and a bathroom. This section of the property does require refurbishment, although it should be noted in recent years the roof has been overhauled and the plumbing and electrics have been updated.

There are therefore various options to either potentially turn the property back into a single house, or two separate residential maisonettes, subject to normal permissions as required.

For further details please contact Philip Cobb at Cobb Farr.
