has undergone significant refurbishment and adaptation to now comprise the following:
Ground Floor Shop/Office
Open plan with display windows to two frontages. Finished to a high specification to include air
conditioning, suspended ceilings, and modern flooring. Most recently used as an insurance
broker’s office but equally capable of use as an estate agency or retail shop. Behind the retail area
are a disabled WC, lobby area with stairs leading down to the basement and a rear access door
giving disabled access off St Edmunds Road. (See photos)
Lower Ground Floor / Basement

has undergone comprehensive redevelopment to now provide a fully fitted kitchen, wet room
shower room with WC and two office rooms. Natural light is provided via external lightwells
beneath pavement grid with replacement glass blocks. (See photos)
First / Second Floor Apartment Project
By virtue of implemented Planning Application N/2007/0829 the first floor and attic have consent
for residential conversion to a two-bedroom self-contained apartment benefitting from its own
private courtyard garden.
Accessed via door off St Edmunds Road leading to a lobby giving access to both the first floor flat
and the rear of the shop unit. A further door gives access to the apartment’s independent lobby
with french doors leading into a self-contained small private courtyard. A staircase accesses the
first floor which is partly converted to include new double-glazed windows and three Juliet
balconies, dry-lining to walls, boarding to first and second floors and steel ceiling grids. Once
completed the flat will comprise a spacious duplex flat with two bedrooms (one being ensuite with
dressing room), kitchen shower/bathroom and living room and study/office which could be used
as a third bedroom. (See photos) – subject to obtaining the requisite consents.
