The Close is a building of substantial proportions currently run as a bed and breakfast guest house with additional residential accommodation. The business is managed to turnover below the VAT threshold ensuring the rate card encourages healthy booking volumes with minimal outlay on advertising. The property would ideally suit a continuation of this flourishing business or conversion back to a sizeable private family home. There is off-road parking for a number of vehicles to the front, a detached double garage with workshop over and well landscaped lawns to the rear, in total around 1.5 acres of outside space. The residential accommodation enjoyed by the current owners to the ground floor comprises large eat-in kitchen/breakfast room with a good size utility room just off, cloakroom, sitting room with large brick faced corner fireplace, store room and stairs to the first floor. This in turn leads to two very large bedrooms to the first floor both of dual aspect nature with stunning views across open fields and countryside. There is loft space storage to the master bedroom and a large family bathroom with airing cupboard. The bed and breakfast accommodation to the ground floor comprises a guest welcoming reception area, four good size bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms and a dining room with access directly to the rear garden. The bed and breakfast accommodation then extends to the first floor with three further ensuite bedrooms and two additional bedrooms serviced by a separate shower room. Overall, an exciting opportunity to develop a popular bed and breakfast business or to acquire a building of substantial proportions to convert to one residential dwelling with large gardens. Further information on the business activities will be made available to genuine and serious commercial enquiries.
