££400,000 Auction Guide Price

10 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

FOR SALE BY ONLINE AUCTION - AUCTION GUIDE £400,000 PLUS VAT. THURSDAY 28TH OCTOBER 2021. 9AM TO 5PM. The former Greyhound Hotel is an attractive and prominent building constructed from the local White Lias stone in an Italian Gothic style around the 1860's.

Recently trading as a bar/caf頯n the ground floor with ancillary accommodation above, this vast property boasts huge potential for a wide variety of uses and redevelopment opportunities, such as a Boutique Hotel, Letting Rooms/ Airbnb, offices, conversion into flats (with the potential of 6 x one-bedroom apartments and 2 x two/three-bedroom apartments whilst retaining a commercial element to the front on the ground floor), and more, subject to the necessary consents.

A wide staircase leads to the living accommodation on the first floor, with its impressive high ceilings, and onto the second floor which, originally, together would have provided 10 individual letting rooms, however, having been reconfigured over the years into ancillary accommodation, occupied by owners and staff, the accommodation now boasts a large family room (formerly two rooms), a large kitchen diner, a large bathroom, two ensuite bedrooms, four further bedrooms and a separate w/c on the half landing.

To the rear of the main building lies the former stables and cart shed building, which is now linked to the main building by a covered stone/concrete staircase and landing, providing access to the Skittle Alley above and additional access to the main building through the family room on the first floor. Now used as stores, the former stables, cart shed and skittle alley, again, offer scope for redevelopment either incorporating their use further into the principle building or potentially separate lettings rooms, dwellings, or commercial building, STPP.

Externally the property benefits from an outside covered seating area and further yard/parking areas to the rear with vehicular access off Pows Orchard.

The property will be sold unfurnished however some of the trading equipment and furniture may be available by separate negotiation to the successful purchaser. Draught beer systems remain ownership of the suppliers and will need to be dealt with accordingly following purchase.


Completion has been set for Thursday 25th November 2021 or earlier by arrangement.
