BRIEF HISTORY OF PROPERTY

We understand the property was originally built in 1881 by local developer James Tilley as a shop with living accommodation over.
In 1998 the building and completely renovated for use as offices. A new roof was fitted and the loft area was converted to be used as a storage room and we understand the building was rewired.
In 1999 planning consent was granted for a 2 storey rear extension - now the kitchen, utility room and rear bedroom.
In 2014 an extensive refurbishment was completed we understand costing in excess of £50k. The work included fitting a new kitchen, a new bathroom and extensive floor and wall tiling throughout the ground floor. The front room, formerly the shop, was used to create a home cinema. The building was extensively rewired. New Storage Heaters were installed using a Economy 7 tariff, new off peak water heating system was also installed.
An electric security shutter to the rear door of the building which leads to the courtyard.
In 2016 the Ground Floor former shop area was granted retrospective planning consent as a residential dwelling.

EPC

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

GUIDE PRICE

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.

RESERVE PRICE

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.
