There have been many changes to the building over the years and it is still possible to see signs of the arch where the horse and carts would have driven through what is now the ground floor commercial space. The ground floor commercial space has been a gift shop and also been used as a restaurant/café and we are told this could still be used for this purpose up to 9 pm at night. With old wooden flooring, some exposed brick and flint internal walls, panelling and exposed beams this would make the most brilliant living space subject planning required for change of use. Stairs lead up to a small landing and the living accommodation, the kitchen benefits from a range fitted base and wall units with integrated appliances including an AEG oven with extractor fan, and dishwasher. There is plenty of space for a large fridge freezer and the room has lovely old wooden flooring and west aspect. Also, off this landing, step down to a large bathroom with dressing area, some exposed flint interior walls, large deep bath, separate shower and contemporary white bathroom suite. The main sitting room spans the width of the property a fabulous space with large windows on the street side, painted floorboards and a charming original fireplace with cast iron surround and mantle, this is a great room, perfect for dining and relaxing with friends and family. Further stairs from this room lead to two loft bedrooms both with good ceiling height, the master bedroom is very spacious with west and east aspect and the second bedroom is a good-sized L shaped double room with west aspect. __________ OUTSIDE A door leading from the ground floor leads out to a small courtyard garden where there is a two-storey outbuilding, believed to have been lived in at one stage. The ground floor is currently a storeroom, laundry and WC and also houses the oil-fired boiler. Above this and accessed via an external staircase is the office which also has a kitchenette. This building offers plenty of potential for further accommodation or even income potential. __________ AGENTS NOTE It should be noted that the house has a couple of flying freehold areas, the bathroom is above the neighbouring house and the neighbouring house own an area above part of the commercial space, this is not uncommon in properties of age that would probably have been one building at some point in the past.
