THE PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION
Being a Town Centre Grade II Listed premises of three storey construction under a pitched slate roof, the property was refurbished and refitted as a restaurant premises during 2014 and now offers a 43 cover restaurant with Italian theming. During the fit out works many period features were retained including timber wainscoting, parquet flooring and ceiling roses. The premises are split into two dining areas, both linked by an open plan kitchen with feature wood burning oven. The two upper floors provide 2 bedroomed accommodation with large lounge diner to the front of the premises with a feature bay window. It is thought the private accommodation could be self contained by creating a new entrance to the front of the premises, subject to any necessary planning consents.
Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest.
