Features and description


This attractive and prominent late Edwardian c.1911 3-storey building is situated in the end of the Market Square, near to the church, and adjacent to a gallery, independent silversmith, and a coffee shop.
The building comprises two smart professional offices/retail space on the ground floor which were extensively refitted and refurbished in 2016 to a very high standard by high end shop fitters mpl. The offices are currently open at the rear to one another but historically were separate and could easily be sub-divided again. The offices are configured to two large bay fronted shop fronts, a rear office space each with an original fireplace, a meeting room, kitchen and two toilets, and are fitted with combination heating/air conditioning units, fire alarm system and have a high speed broadband connection (subject to transfer).
There are two spacious duplex apartments over the offices (25a & 26a); 25a was refurbished in 2022 and has been a successful Airbnb and short term let; 26a is tenanted under a rolling AST.
To the rear of the main building there is a detached single storey barn with power and light, an outside toilet and car parking area for a number of vehicles with access directly onto Church Street. The barn and car park provide an excellent opportunity for redevelopment and have a lapsed planning consent (see use).
