The store is currently trading as a fashion & accessories outlet with extensive prom, wedding and designer baby ranges - in essence a small boutique department store with a broad clientele. The business has been successfully trading from the location for over 10 years and diversification into other product ranges has now lead the owners to seek larger premises closer to their home location.

The accommodation has three main retail areas to the ground floor offering approximately 374 sq ft of retail space with large retail display windows and a separate side entrance which could allow the rear shop to be a separate, stand alone retail unit, providing an additional revenue stream if so desired.

Further stairs lead to the converted attic space which is currently used as a craft and store room. The property also has a dry cellar suitable for additional storage.
The structure could lend itself to a conversion of the upper floors into living space subject to necessary planning consents – offering a home and retail opportunity.
