For sale freehold. attractive village post office. 4 bedroom flat. large garden, plot size totalling approximately 0.21 of an acre. Outbuilding ideal for use as a workshop/conversion (s.t.p.p.). Potential re-development (s.t.p.p.).

LOCATION

DESCRIPTION
The ground floor retail unit is self-contained and has been completely refurbished to provide an attractive double fronted retail unit, with a good size storage room to the rear.

Above the shop and to the rear of the property forms a recently refurbished 4 bedroom flat with a rear conservatory style extension, large living room with an open fire feature, modern fitted kitchen with contemporary features and a newly fitted bath and shower room. Access to the living accommodation can be gained from inside the shop and via a driveway to the side of the property, giving the option to owner occupier or privately let the flat.

The current vendors have previously occupied the flat however, with family commitments moving them away from the village, they have now Moved out and are letting the flat to private tenants. The tenants are on a flexible tenancy currently paying £1,200 pcm and are aware the property is on the market to be sold.

The large rear garden and plot offers approximately 0.21 of an acre which can also be accessed via a shared driveway. With the right architects and advice coupled with planning permission there could be further scope to demolish existing outbuildings and erect new dwellings making the plot extremely versatile.

TRADING & BUSINESS
The Post Office and Village Shop form part of the sale and a purchaser may wish to continue running the shop. Accounts are currently being finalised for the previous year and can be produced in due course. Over the last few years the owners have put hard work and effort into the shop to enable it to continue to be a successful business, due to a young family and new challenges the vendors are deciding to sell. The business continues to be profitable and the owners feel a hands on owner occupier with new ideas and the desire to expand the business will reap the rewards of running the local shop.

The shop like the above flat has also undergone refurbishment and so benefits from new shelving, fans, alarms, electrics, fridges, freezers and various other equipment. The major new additions are a new deli unit and EPOS system. All of which will be included within the sale, plus remaining stock at valuation.
