A substantial freehold mixed use property set in 0.25 acres comprising 3 bedroom house, single storey takeaway premises with planning for conversion to 1 bedroom flat and car park with planning pending for development.
Situated on the junction of the A38 and A368 this is prominent highly visible building, suitable for a variety of uses. It is well located, in close proximity to Bath City Centre (23 miles), Bristol City Centre (14 miles) and Bristol Airport (6 miles) on the outskirts of Langford. The property comprises a well established fish and chip shop takeaway business, a substantial 3 bedroom, 3 reception room house and a car park for 15 cars. In total the site extends to circa 0.25 acres. Planning has been granted to convert the single storey building into a large 1 bedroom bungalow of approximately 120 sqm. With some external alterations and revisions to the planning this could be changed to a 3 bed. For those more commercially minded, planning exists to convert this building and the ground floor of the house into a 28 seater café/restaurant with self contained flat above. The existing house comprises a through lounge/diner, additional reception room/bedroom 4, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and double garage; whilst on the first floor there are 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property is ideal for HMO use, flat conversion or offers potential as a B&B given the proximity to Bristol Airport and the ample onsite parking (subject to the necessary consents). Alternatively it could make a fine family home. Outline planning has been applied for the development of the car park to provide two further dwellings, although a decision is still pending. A truly versatile property offering a wide range of possibilities from total redevelopment, conversion or business use.
