Full description

Melksham is a busy growing market town in West Wiltshire with a population of circa 22,000 (2011 census) which offers a wide range of shops and amenities including Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Peacocks and Boots.

The former Red Lion public house is a Grade II listed building situated to the north of the town centre on the one way system which gives access from Bath Road to the Challeymead roundabout.

The Red Lion, we understand from the blue plaque on the wall was built in 1728 originally as cottages which were subsequently altered to create a single building and used as a Public House.

The property is two storey under a stone slate roof and rubble stone walls. It has a range of window styles, including some casement as well as mullioned. The interior has been altered predominately in the last century to a modern style and is in need of some refurbishment.

Mostly recently it was used as offices for a care organisation and it incorporates a kitchen and WC facilities.

There is parking, which is part of the demise on the other side of the access road.

We understand that the property has the following net internal areas;

Ground floor 1086 sq ft (100.9 sq m)
First floor 1089 sq ft (101.2 sq m)

Total 2175 sq ft (202 sq m).

We are advised that mains drainage, water and electricity are connected. However, we have not verified the existence or tested any of the service installations and advise that interested parties make their own investigations as to their state and condition.

The premises are available by way of a new internal repairing and insuring lease at a rental of £17,000.

Alternatively, our clients may be willing to sell the freehold interest, for which the price is available on application.
