OVERVIEW
Prominently located sales shop offering characterful sales space in a distinctive, period building with double fronted display window, set in the bustling town centre of Milnthorpe with an excellent trading position next to the local post office/convenience store. In current ownership for 39 years. The shop consists of an irregularly-shaped sales area of approx 465 sq ft, a rear windowed room of 75 sq ft with functioning kitchenette and shelving area, and separate WC (belonging to the shop only); with a very useful, dry, brick-built store/workshop beside of a further 163 sq ft. Level access at the rear leads to the property's garage, and accesses with legal right of way the car park of a nearby inn, and from there the main road. This could be useful for rear stock deliveries. Customers and front deliveries are also catered for with a next door parking bay to the shop front (free parking for 2 hours; except on market day Friday).

The shop currently has A1 Retail use which allows for permitted change of use to A2 Professional/Financial Services if required. The stone storage outbuilding to rear has until very recently functioned as a useful and naturally well-lit workshop.

The maisonette above is well-proportioned with plenty of character features, accessed from its own stone stairs to the rear into a fully-enclosed porch (plumbed for washing machine) which leads into the bright rear kitchen. Also on this level are the lounge (twin front windows) and bathroom. Off of the brightly lit second floor landing are two good-sized double bedrooms, one with a large walk-in storage area (previously used as a single bedroom), the other with an en-suite

In the last 10 years the owners have had installed the double glazing, gas central heating , a new kitchen, the en-suite bathroom, and a new roof.

These premises represent an excellent opportunity to live over your business, or to occupy the shop and generate an income from the maisonette above, or vice versa! (We would be pleased to advise on potential rental figures for either.)

There is potential also for development to residential on all floors, subject to the usual planning consent.
