Full description

This large Victorian Grade II listed property provides more than ample accommodation for a large family - or possible property share, with a total of 8 double bedrooms - 2 of which have en-suite facilities.

It has a large fitted kitchen, large family lounge, laundry room and dining room.

It has a beautiful carved oak staircase running the whole height of the building - which must be seen to be fully appreciated.

In addition to this ample accommodation, there is also a separate ground floor flat with it's own entrances ( plus there is a connecting door inside ) with two bedrooms, it's own fitted kitchen, bathroom and office/study.

Outside at the front there is parking for two vehicles with a pleasant courtyard garden at the rear - complete with it's own large fish pond.

The property is fully protected by a certified fire alarm system and regulation emergency lighting where required.

The property lends itself to a number of uses. It could be used as a large family house with a granny flat, it is ideal for a B&B or could easily be converted into an HMO to be used as an investment property to maximise profit.

The property was originally built as the Highlands Hotel and, in it's time, had been used as a hotel, a backpackers hostel, emergency B&B for the homeless and a luxury private dwelling. It is our understanding that, with such a varied historical use, no planning consent would be required to run it as a B&B and the fire alarm system is fully certified for such use.

With its positioning between the High Street and Seafront, Maplewood House is conveniently located close to all the town's amenities.
