Full description


A rare opportunity to acquire a long established commercial business in a charming country town in the Cotswolds. The grade 2 listed building houses the shop on the ground floor and basement, and a spacious, 3 bedroom home on the first floor. There is a courtyard garden to the rear with separate studio.

The business, known as Wotton DIY is situated centrally on Long Street (think High St) in a charming grade 2 listed property with the business occupying the ground floor and basement and the living accommodation on the floor above. The shop fronts onto the 'High Street and extends back through several rooms to the rear of the property and allows access to the cellar, living accommodation above and garden.

It is a fully fitted DIY and hardware store offering a comprehensive mix of house, garden and general D.I.Y goods plus key cutting service. The business has been operating for many years, and 11 years under the current owner's stewardship. It is well supported by the town, local tradesmen, farmers and surrounding villages - so much so that there has been little effect from the recession.

The spacious living accommodation, in brief, comprises: landing, kitchen/diner, living/dining room, office area, 3 bedrooms, family bathroom and a separate studio accessed from the garden. 

LOCATION
Wotton Under Edge is a charming country town tucked away under the Southern edge of the Cotswolds, equidistant from Gloucester and Bristol, Cheltenham, Cirencester and Bath, only a few miles from the M4 and M5. Wotton is a thriving and lively place which still embodies many of the features of small town life which have disappeared in bigger places. The Cotswold Way National Trail passes through the town, along the main shopping streets which are packed with small family run shops selling an amazing range of goods. The town also offers a wide range of services and places to eat.
