Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Brough is a thriving town with an excellent community spirit perfectly situated to sustain a successful hospitality business. The town sits in the beautiful Eden Valley, on the edge of the A66, the main link road between the East & West in the North of England within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. It has a village shop, excellent nursery and primary school, outreach post office, a newly renovated hotel and pub, a monthly farmers' market of local food producers, as well as a centrally-located medical practice with in-house pharmacy.

The property itself is a substantial Grade II listed 18th century former coaching inn, which has been sympathetically refurbished in recent years. On the ground floor are a well equipped kitchen with separate utility room and a traditional cellar, as well as a lovely entrance hall and contemporary dining room with underfloor heating.

On the first floor there are two excellent en-suite letting bedrooms and a further room which could be used to create a 3rd letting bedroom if required, with relatively straightforward reconfiguration.

On the second floor, is a private owners suite with two bedrooms, bathroom and a living room.

Externally the side archway leads to a traditional cobbled lane, shared with a number of adjoining properties. The property owns a car park at the end of the cobbles on Swan Avenue, offering parking for up to three vehicles.

Swanson House would make a fabulous family home or business B&B opportunity and internal viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the size & quality of the accommodation.
