Full description

Built circa 1765 this elegant Georgian property has seen a substantial change to the local area, and it now sits in the perfect position to provide commercial use to the local area. With an impressive 3997 sq.ft, this property offers a fine balance of residential and commercial use, with a stunning four-bedroom semi-detached house being a perfect family home, as well as extensive purpose build workshops, office, double garage & ample car parking for would-be customers, which would allow a new owner to run a successful business.

Currently used as classic motorcycle repair and sales business, but the versatile commercial units along with the B2 commercial license means that the premises would be ideal for most business uses.
