This quaint Victorian semi-detached residence, built in 1885 is a superb example of magnificent Victorian construction with cream marland brick elevations, slate roof, an extension to the rear and double glazed windows throughout.
The elegantly proportioned and well-presented accommodation has been improved by our clients and now offers three reception rooms on the ground floor, breakfast room, office, equipped commercial kitchen as well as a dining room and stock room.
To the upper floors there are 8 spacious fully furnished en-suite letting bedrooms and on the top floor is a private owners bedroom.
The property also benefits from a lower ground floor garden apartment which has been completely refurbished with kitchenette and shower room.
This in itself could be owners accommodation or used as present as a holiday let at £75 per night.
The property has the benefit of a car park with 5 spaces and a pleasant garden which is approached via steps, which give access to the rear garden. The garden itself includes a three tier garden with sunny patio, lawned area, vegetable plot with greenhouse and shed.
Our clients operate for 8 months of the year and the business is under the personal supervision of the owners (a husband and wife team), providing bed and breakfast accommodation, which produces a turnover of approximately £70,000 per annum.
Audited accounts will be made available to those seriously interested parties who have inspected the property. A full inventory of fixtures, fittings and equipment is available and has already been prepared.
