Tender Guide - £250,000

16 South Street is a large terraced period building offering a ground floor commercial space with A3 Consent (restaurant and café), a five bedroom flat above over floors 1 & 2 and an attached building to the rear offering an opportunity for conversion to additional residential space. There is also parking to the rear and a garden area with the parking easily able to accommodate three vehicles.

The property would provide an opportunity for individuals seeking not only a large living space suitable for a family, but also to generate additional rental income, which could come from the ground floor commercial space and through the development opportunity to the rear.

Internally the ground floor commercial space has a large shopfront directly onto South Street and contains a number of period features, most notably timber floors and exposed beams. This continues into the rear space associated with the commercial aspect and also continues up the small staircase which contains a WC and a potential kitchen associated with the commercial space.

From this first floor commercial space there is a separate doorway to access the flat. It is noted that the flat also has a separate access point from an alleyway directly off South Street, offering privacy and means there is no interference with the commercial aspect. The flat is maintained in very good condition again with a number of period features throughout namely the floorboards and exposed timber beams. On the first floor can be found a shower room, living room, kitchen and dining room all of which are a good size. Centrally there is a staircase which leads to the second floor where can be found five bedrooms and a further bathroom.

The development opportunity to the rear has a number of access points. First of all is directly through the commercial space, the second access point is off the alleyway which accesses the flat, and a third access point is directly from the garden area. This building contains three downstairs rooms with a central staircase leading up to a large first floor space with a separate kitchenette and WC. The building itself is currently only used as storage and as such contains no fixtures or fittings. This building is maintained in a good condition but it is noted that it may require some structural attention at its northern point prior to redevelopment taking place.
