The property is situated adjacent to Holland & Barratt at the top of the High Street near the Grosvenor Hotel. Other nearby occupeirs include Woolley & Wallis, Nat West, Reeve The Baker, Mistral and Hays Travel. There is a new Morrisons supermarket nearby in Bell Street opposite Shaftesbury Arts Centre. Bell Street Pay & Display car park is also close by. Shaftesbury is an attractive rural town situated some 20 miles west of Salisbury (via the A30) and approximately 8 miles south of the A303 trunk road which links Exeter and the West Country and the M3/London.
Formerly occupied by Barclays Bank and essentially comprising front and rear buildings which currently interlink, the premises can be let as a whole or split in various configurations. Planned mainly over two floors plus a basement and with a second floor area over the front of the property, the part fronting the High street would lend itself well to retail uses having additional space at first floor which has excellent natural light and which in turn leads to the second floor. The rear part of the property could comprise a self-contained office (or similar use) planned over ground and first floors together with basement storage and benefiting from separate access off Church Lane. Freehold disposal options will be considered in respect of the building as a whole and also on the rear part of the property only. A planning application has recently been submitted which makes provision for a new shop front with additional display window to Church Lane.
