A rare opportunity to acquire a home and retail unit in a prominent position in the centre of this historic and famous beauty spot in the Lower Wye Valley between Monmouth and Chepstow. There is a ground floor retail shop configured as a photographers studio, with the side hall/showroom utilised as a meeting and viewing room. Below is a large 2 bed garden flat with rear vehicular access, a good size cottage garden with workshop, store and ample parking. Above is a second very well presented 2 bed flat. Either flat would make an excellent home, or both could be let on shorthold tenancies, or as holiday lets. Formal planning permission granted for year round holiday accommodation (DC/2014/00198,14/4/2014). There is access to both flats from the street level, whilst the garden flat, on the lower ground floor, has parking and access from the garden. There is partial replacement double glazing and the whole building is served by one oil fired central heating system.
