What the owner says

We have owned and operated the property as a HMO for 35 years and now wish to retire. It has been almost fully occupied with very few voids, providing us with a steady inflation proof income. In the 1960’s it was a Guest House and (STPP) is ideally suited to that use or conversion into large Flats with much character as many of the original Victorian features still exist. All Flatlets are sub-metered for electricity and 10 also for gas.

This is a unique opportunity to acquire a substantial investment property, that is let.

Property details

It is rare that such an opportunity comes to the market. A fantastic, substantial and grand Victorian detached building is currently used as a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO). The current licence allows up to 20 people to live in the property at any one time.

That said, the scope for development (STPP) in to a number of apartments is more than obvious too.

A grand entrance hall and doorway is testament to the Victorian era this home was built in.

Given the central location it is ideal for the town centre and mainline train station: it’s no wonder it is normally fully occupied.

The ground floor is licensed for seven occupants. ‘Flat let 3’ has the extra benefit of it's own front door, separate lounge, kitchen, WC & double bedroom. The rooms are serviced by a shower room/utility area with WC and separate WC.

The first floor is licensed for seven people. Flat let 6 being the largest, with plenty of character courtesy of the turret and a balcony which enjoys a pleasant outlook over the tree-bordered side garden. A shower room with toilet provide the services on this level.

Off the stairs to the second floor are a separate WC/shower room and a bathroom with WC. On the second floor there are a further 3 flatlets licensed for 6 people. Flatlet 10 has a kitchen/diner and a lounge/bedroom with turrett, whilst flatlet 12 has it's own separate kitchen. A large attic space will be of great benefit too.
