The Norfolk Agents are pleased to offer this unique lifestyle opportunity to be at the centre of the community in Little Melton, a thriving village on the outskirts of Norwich. The Village Stores is an established business which has been further enhanced since sharing the retail area with a successful florist. Adjoining the retail premises, is a 3-bedroom cottage with off-street parking and a private courtyard garden.
The shop currently turns over around £250,000 annually; although it should be noted that the business is run below its capacity, with the scope to increase opening hours and to open 7 days a week available. The front of house area extends to around 970 sq./ft. with parking to the front and a 10ft driveway extending along one side.
The cottage provides well-proportioned accommodation which briefly comprises kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room with fireplace and cloakroom on the ground floor; with three bedrooms and family bathroom arranged around the first floor landing. Central heating is provided courtesy of an oil-fired boiler, mains services and UPVC double glazing.
Little Melton is a pretty village on the outskirts of Norwich, approximately 6 miles from the city centre.
