Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION
The Kingsway Guest House fronts onto one of the main approaches to Minehead Sea Front on the Ponsford Road connecting to the Tregonwell Road and is within level walking distance of all town centre shops, the sea front and scenic railway station.

This is a part-popular residential area of the town and the property occupies a commanding position on the junction of two roads and overlooking its own lawned gardens.

Minehead is West Somerset's busiest tourist resort having a population in the region of 8000 inhabitants boosted during the summer months with the influx of tourists and is popular with people staying at the Butlins Holiday Camp within the resort. The town offers a host of facilities including good beaches, a popular park in the town centre and a fine selection of local and national retailers. The resort is often referred to as the gateway to Exmoor National Park and thereby villages include Dunster and Porlock.

THE PROPERTY
The Kingsway is a fine detached residence with accommodation on 3 floors. The ground floor provides a comfortable private lounge as well as a separate resident's lounge, a spacious dining room and separate former bar/office, all serviced by a fully fitted kitchen and with access to the rear private cloakroom and storage facilities.

On the first floor there are 4 en-suite bedrooms and to the second floor a further 4 en-suite bedrooms. The ground floor also has the benefit of an additional en-suite bedroom. Another benefit to the accommodation is the stairs to the attic room where there is a large L-shaped room ideal for teenage accommodation or storage facilities, as at present. The property is highly versatile and would make an ideal private residence or possible alternative commercial uses such as offices, dental practice, doctors surgery or similar, subject to any necessary planning consents that may be required.

There is also potential to convert the accommodation into self-contained flats, again subject to planning consents.

THE BUSINESS
Currently operated by a husband and wife team opening for mainly the bed and breakfast trade, also opening through the Christmas period and having a turnover of between £35,000 and £55,000 per annum, depending on the type of business the proprietor wishes to conduct. Again, from choice our clients customer base is primarily non-family, but a discerning purchaser can soon realize the potential of this guest house accommodation.

The business has the potential to increase the trade further and the current owners operate a very comfortable home and income with all of the main outgoing of the house being filtered through the business as is the norm for such guest houses.
