Property Description

A rare opportunity to acquire this charming town centre double fronted period property interestingly arranged over three floors in this tucked away location just off the market square, believed to date back to c.1700's or early 1800's. The property is currently occupied as offices with commercial usage since around 1978, however, we believe, with the lifting of a covenant in 2017 restricting the conversion back to residential use as well as recent planning enquiries, that returning the property to a residential dwelling should be relatively straight-forward under permitted development rights and a lawful development certificate has been applied for. The accommodation currently comprises a small entrance hall leading to two ground floor rooms, one being utilised as a kitchen with two cloakrooms, with two cellar basement rooms, two further rooms to the first floor, as well as two attic rooms, providing potential to either convert to small flats or restore to a single two/three bedroom dwelling. The property has undergone some refurbishment works including some works to the roof, re-plastering and damp proofing over the last 16 years by the current owners, which has also included the installation of a gas central heating system.

All mains services connected.
Gas fired central heating via radiators.

"Just a quick mail to thank you for the professional and dedicated manner in which Kennet Close was sold. Plus a Thank you for being involved with the purchase of Warmans close via the not so professional agent in Didcot! (Holding my self back on that subject) I would have sent a mail earlier but unfortunately, Warmans wasn't left to us in a particularly great condition. Although after clearing away the grime and much DIY the house is starting to show it'self as a lovely place to live. Thank you again."
