An excellent opportunity to acquire a very attractive period village property that comprises a charming lock up shop which was historically the village post office from Victorian times until the 1950’s, a 2 bedroom entirely self-contained coach house, a gated courtyard, an open 3 car garage and an adjoining outbuilding that has previously been used as a beauty room.
The retail/commercial element of the property has been trading very successfully as a high-end hair dressing salon for almost 25 years. In addition, the outbuilding off the courtyard has been occupied by a beautician while the first floor coach house offers beautifully appointed living accommodation that has been continuously Let on the basis of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy at an excellent rent.
The retail – salon area on the ground floor has a lovely atmosphere and is enriched with a number of attractive period features including the original Victorian shop front complete with internally operated awning. The space is open and airy with a view towards Brent Knoll itself. Adjoining the main reception retail area there is a preparation area, a staff room/kitchen and off that space a WC. Across a spacious private sheltered south facing courtyard there is a “barn” with a former beauty room and very appealing open garaging. The courtyard is enclosed by wide double gates (remote controlled) beneath a coach arch with an external staircase to one side rising to a sun deck balcony area that in turn opens to the fabulous two double bedroom coach house style living accommodation which is entirely self contained.
The property is suitable for a variety of uses and while a hair salon has clearly succeeded here, given the tourist attraction of Brent Knoll’s Iron Age hill fort and other venues in the area it is felt that a café amongst other alternative uses (subject to any necessary consents) might work equally as well. If required, the hair salon equipment will be included in the sale with no uplift for the good will being applied as the present owner is planning retirement from the salon business.
Again while the living accommodation element of the property is very appealing and extremely well appointed the options are continue as is with a residential Let, become and owner occupier or, most profitably offer holiday Lets Air B&B style since this location would make a great base for visitors to the region being within easy reach of the M5 (1.5 miles) a mainline railway station in nearby Highbridge and good access to the Mendip Hills, Bristol Channel Coast, The Quantock Hills, Exmoor and the Somerset Levels a magnate for walkers fishermen and birdwatchers. These are just a few of the reason why Brent Knoll one of the most sought after villages in Somerset and in the village there are a wide range of local amenities that include a post office store, a public house, a primary school, village hall, tennis club and an historic church.
