THE PROPERTY

The Old Gaol or Charley Box is steeped in history - a Freehold Grade II listed property built around 1830 and situated at the bottom of Picton Street, the first purpose built Georgian shopping street, in the heart of Montpelier known by many as the creative and artistic quarter in Bristol.
Bristol did not set up their police force until 1836, so the Charley was given the powers to arrest and confine overnight anyone who disturbed the peace and, if necessary, transfer them to the magistrates the following morning.
Back then the Old Gaol consisted of a very small room for the Charley and two barrel-vaulted cells, one of which still has its iron-studded door.
Below street level there were two more vaulted rooms with a squint in the dividing wall.
In recent times the Old Gaol has been used for a wide variety of purposes including a hairdressing salon, a studio, a café and for many years a rental property and then a very popular AirBnB apartment with a music studio below.
There are steps up to the the tranquil inner city courtyard garden is a sun trap with well-established trees and shrubs.
Sold with vacant possession.

BUYER’S PREMIUM

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.

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 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.
