Commercial shop front premises situated at premium corner location with three bedroom cottage, one bedroom annexe, two storey barn and double garage included. Packed with potential. EPC Rating D
Do you want a shop front premises to run a business on a premier spot on the A370 equidistant between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare? Do you want substantial living accommodation attached and outbuildings packed with potential? Then look no further. We are informed that parts of this sizeable plot date from around 1790 so any potential purchaser would really be buying into part of the history of Cleeve. 39 Main Road has recently been used as a gallery and picture framing business, but was formerly a butchers shop and there is loads of potential for further conversion such as to a takeaway outlet (subject to appropriate consents). The shop is 'L' shaped with large dual aspect windows facing the main A370 and the corner junction of Bishops Road with a small workshop/office to the rear. However the shop front and office are only one small part of this story. Attached and making up the majority of the square footage is a well presented and characterful three bedroom cottage extending above and to the rear of the shop frontage. This has a well proportioned living space comprising lounge/dining room with woodburning stove, fitted kitchen, three double bedrooms and family bathroom. There is also a self contained annexe comprising: Lounge, kitchen/dining room, double bedroom and shower room. Both of these properties have double glazing and share gas central heating, and as the living accommodation was originally arranged as one abode, there is scope to change back from the current 'dual occupation' arrangement (indeed it would really only be one partition wall being removed). Outside the impressiveness of the plot really becomes apparent. The cottage and annexe are arranged on one side of an enclosed courtyard with gate access, small lawned area and 'Japanese' style gravelled seating area.
However there are also other outbuildings such as a detached double garage, a sun room and a two storey stone and wood built barn, currently used as storage as part of the commercial premises, and with possible development potential (subject to appropriate planning consents). Indeed the current owners inform us that planning permission was granted for the barn to be demolished and for a dwelling to be built with single garage incorporating the sun room and lawned area as part of the footprint. This planning has now lapsed but original plans are available on request. There is further off street parking for the owners and some customer parking.
Opportunities such as these are few and far between, and for someone with the right vision, the potential for development to both the commercial, residential and outbuilding (subject to planning) is great. This should not however give the impression that the property is not currently of a very high standard, the current owners have redecorated and renovated the property fully, and for a family wishing to also have a business, there really is no downside. An internal viewing is essential as the site is extremely deceptive, offered with no chain, we recommend an arrangement at your earliest convenience.
Our vendor says ... We bought the property to run our own business and be closer to the family. We've loved the character, the space, the age and the privacy at the back. It's a wonderful spot for the shop and with great access to Bristol, the Airport, the surrounding villages and schools, it's a great place to bring up a family.
We have noticed ... What more do you want... Your own business with substantial residential accommodation. Loads of scope for development and conversion or change of use (subject to consents). Fantastic position with good access to all local amenities and transport routes. And offered with no chain! Do not delay!
The village of Cleeve in North Somerset is situated between Weston-super-Mare and Bristol, just off the main A370 with its associated public transport links. There is also a bus service to Clevedon. Bristol is within easy daily commuting distance, there is a mainline railway station at nearby Yatton, and Bristol Airport is a short drive away. Primary schooling is at nearby Court de Wyck school at Claverham and secondary schooling is at Backwell (much acclaimed). The village has local facilities incl. Shops, pub, hairdressers, takeaways and a village hall. Sports facilities are available at Cadbury House a few minutes' drive away and there is beautiful countryside and lovely walks in the area including the stunning Goblin Coombe within a few minutes' walk.
Travelling South on the A370 from Bristol, once into Cleeve pass the Lord Nelson Pub on the left and the site can be found on the corner of Bishops Road and the A370 on your right. We suggest you turn into Bishops Road then park in Millier Road on your right.
