A Grade II listed Freehold end of terrace former bank premises ( 3607 Sq Ft ) occupying a prominent High Street location in an excellent trading position.
Arranged over three floors plus attic and large single storey extension to rear - the property comprises a trading area on the ground floor with ancillary accommodation and kitchen facilities on the upper floors.
Sold with vacant possession.


With its pretty honey-coloured stone buildings and reputedly, the widest high street in the country, Chipping Sodbury boasts an enviable choice of restaurants, pubs and shops, including traditional butchers, bakers and greengrocers.
Pretty tea-rooms and quaint cafés jostle for position alongside a variety of fashion, gift and high quality art shops. At the heart of Chipping Sodbury, however, lies the town's pride in its heritage and many of the events, fairs, festivals and carnivals that take place here today have done so for many centuries.
There's a popular farmer's market every other Saturday and music lovers will appreciate the annual Sodbury Jazz Festival, which, in the past, has welcomed iconic musicians such as Kenny Ball, Jacqui Dankworth and Acker Bilk to the town.
There are plenty of modern-day facilities and services on offer of course, including the new Waitrose supermarket which is within walking distance of Barnhill, the town library, tennis club and a diverse range of social societies, clubs and groups that all help give this lovely town a welcoming and vibrant community feel.
Chipping Sodbury is conveniently located just 25 minutes drive away from Bristol and 30 minutes from Bath. Junction 18 of the M4 is less than 10 minutes drive away and nearby towns and villages include Badminton, Castle Combe, Chepstow, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud, Tetbury, Thornbury and Cirencester.



The upper floors would suit a residential conversion to a large maisonette or two individual units ( possible more if attic space is utilised )
Self contained access could be achieved from the ground floor ( no rear access )
The rear of the large ground floor extension could also be included in the residential conversion.
Likewise the roof of the extension has scope for a superb roof terrace garden.


There has been interest in achieving a change of use to A3 and converting the property into a large cafe / bar with roof terrace.
Please refer to withdrawn planning application.


Buyers may also wish to investigate the opportunity to create a mixed use scheme with offices on the ground floor and residential above ( subject to consents )

Interested parties should make their own enquiries to South Gloucestershire Council to ascertain the exact rates payable as a change in occupation may trigger an adjustment of the ratings assessment:


For full details of the EPC please refer to the online legal pack.


Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.


An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.


The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
