Floor Plans & EPC

DESCRIPTION

The property comprises a 2-storey end-of-terrace building arranged as ground and first floor offices with extensive attic storage.

The building has been extended to the rear to provide an annexe following refurbishment of a former stable block. This provides additional office and staff accommodation, again over two levels. The property is of tradition stone construction with part-rendered exterior beneath a multi-pitch and slate-covered roof.

Internally, the space has been adapted over the years to provide both individual and open plan offices, but could easily be reconfigured for alternative use, subject to planning.

Outside, an archway at the southern end of the building provides access to a rear courtyard offering some parking with the main car park extending beyond the rear.

RATEABLE VALUE

Office & Premises – £37,650

Interested parties should make their own enquiries of Eden District Council on 01768 817 817
