The site extends to approximately 0.37 hectare (0.92 acre) being broadly level and surrounded by mature trees and an established landscape. There is a leat running the length of the eastern boundary (which runs to Exwick Mill) with open fields beyond this and to the south of the site. A wide entrance provides good access from the highway and there is a generous yard area for deliveries, circulation and parking to the front of the premises.
The premises are currently owner occupied and trade as Chunky Monkey. The business specialises in the manufacture of contemporary and rustic furniture using reclaimed British timber.
The buildings comprise a retail reception and sales office which leads immediately on to the furniture showroom with the workshop and storage premises beyond. The owner’s generously proportioned living accommodation can be accessed from the showroom area or externally from the private garden. The reception sales office and living accommodation are of prefabricated and timber frame construction and these elements have been modified and improved to meet the current owner’s occupational requirements. The substantial showroom and workshop accommodation is of steel frame construction, having a corrugated asbestos cement roof and solid concrete floor throughout. The elevations comprise a range of materials, with the majority being externally clad with treated timber.
The premises are uniquely situated in a desirable and unspoilt rural setting within the Riverside Valley Park, approximately two miles to the north west of the city centre.
