Formerly ‘The Old Post Office’ and presently trading as R F Burrows & Sons a 4th generation family butcher established in 1924 within the commercial self-contained front shop unit and in conjunction with the residential four-bedroom house at the rear. Both elements being the recent subjects of extensive improvements and substantial monetary outlay. The vast loft rooms hold the key to unlock further passive income. For example, in the form of bed and breakfast/Airbnb accommodation ( subject to any necessary consents and improvement works). Local sources of potential nearby customers include the wedding venues at Peckforton Castle, Dorfold Hall as well as Boldsworth Castle which offers an extensive and varied season of top attractions.
This distinctive landmark detached period property is rich in character and due to its unique combination of residential and commercial elements, is without comparison in the locality.
At its heart, this is a delightful family home, as presently configured is four of the largest double bedrooms you are ever likely to come across, ideal for family life being close to the local primary school and Doctor’s surgery. One has an en suite and the other three are served by a stylish and well-equipped family bathroom.
At ground floor level there is a particularly impressive collection of ground floor reception rooms and super breakfast kitchen with space for table and chairs. The ground floor has been substantially remodelled in recent times and opened into a stylish open plan format, with a pleasing blend of traditional and contemporary features, these including an AGA wood burning stove, engineered oak flooring and bi fold doors. I also love the superb Minton flooring in the entrance hallway.
Crowning the building are six loft rooms, presently used as loft store areas but providing extensive potential, subject to planning, to create extra accommodation. At the opposite end of the house, there is an extensive cellar, which is in good order and provides either storage space or again the potential to create more accommodation, subject to planning.
Another unique aspect to this property is the large and impressive retail and associated space, which is presently used as the village butchers. Vacant possession will be offered to the eventual purchasers. The commercial space provides the perfect base for those looking to run a street facing retail business from home, or alternatively an excellent additional income if let out on a modern commercial lease. The Government Valuation office in calculating the rateable value in there 1st April 2023 valuation stated that the shop premises would hypothetically let for £8,325 pa based on a zoned commercial area of 195.47 m2. Interested parties are advised to take independent advice to confirm these figures are correct, with the possibility the premises could let for more. ?

This is a property that offers an incredible amount of space on day one, much of which is in excellent contemporary condition.
