Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Bell House Gallery, which was established by our clients, who are looking to retire, in 1982.

Bell House Gallery is a pretty shop that sells a huge range of gift items from greetings cards and wrapping to jewellery, toys, household items, accessories, present ideas, seasonal items and bags. Within the glass cases there are more expensive items such as watches, jewellery, picture frames, vases etc.

There is an established local customer base along with further footfall from further afield.

Bell House Gallery does not currently have a website nor does it have a social media page. Our clients openly admit that advertising the products online would vastly increase income. To the rear of the premise is a store room; this space would be perfect as a tea room facility. This option is being considered by the landlord.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

Location
Bell House Gallery is located in the popular Hertfordshire town of Buntingford.

Buntingford is on the original A10 route, therefore, accessible to Cambridge and London by road. The building itself dates from the 15th Century and the gallery itself was a former coach house called The Bell Inn.

There is ample one-hour free parking on the High Street.

There are many features throughout the shop including beams and exposed herringbone brickwork making this a unique and pretty shop to work from.
