A beautiful, double fronted stone house with lock-up shop / office, enjoying a walled, south-facing garden. Option to purchase an additional cottage to the rear.

A beautiful, double fronted, stone house, dating from the early 1600s and Listed Grade II. Attached to the house is a lock-up shop / office, which offers rental potential.

The property has an interesting history. 46a has been a private residence for many years, though it has been an antique shop, in conjunction with 46, for a period of time. 46 later served as an office for a local business. It perhaps offers a rental opportunity now, for office or retail space, or even as a B&B unit -subject to any consents necessary.

The garden has a high stone wall to the eastern boundary, which used to be the rear wall of a row of cottages, the blind windows of which, can still be seen today. The path down the garden would have run through to South Road, until the early 20th Century.

Within the garden, there is a detached cottage (48 West Street) which is available to purchase, by seperate negotiation.

46 & 46a West Street is accessed via the central passageway . This handsome house offers versatility within its three-storey accommodation, with each of the rooms boasting a huge amount of character, including original fireplaces, beautiful floorboards, panelled doors, and some mullioned windows.

The ground floor comprises a hall with a step down to the dining room. The kitchen, with fitted furniture, is set to the back of the house, and includes a traditional range.

The drawing room, with inglenook fireplace is at the front of the house and has original cupboards to one side.

The first floor has a spacious landing with study area. To the front, is a wonderfully atmospheric room that has served as both a bedroom and a sitting room in years gone by. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom on this floor. Stairs rise from the landing to two attic bedrooms.

Across the passageway is 46, which is essentially a room with an attractive, mullioned bay window, a WC cubicle and stairs down to the fantastic cellar with barrelled ceiling.

The south-facing garden is set along the path and contains a number of mature shrubs and a large lawn. The wall provides shelter and privacy. Currently it is open to the garden area used by number 48, but division will be a simple process.
