St Matthews House provides a fantastic opportunity to acquire a small commercial premise in the popular market town of Craven Arms. Alternatively, a premise with planning consent to convert into a single dwelling, within level walking distance of the towns' amenities. The property has been used until recently as an Accountants office. The sale is due to relocation to another office building in the town. Planning was granted in 2005 to alter the faade of the building, which was originally a large shop frontage. This alteration triggered the planning consent and activated it in perpetuity. Further details of the original planning and confirmation that the alteration is sufficient can be found on the Shropshire Planning Portal under Reference Number SS/1/05/16855/F. The property could potential be converted into a two -bedroom bungalow. The premise is opt-in for VAT, therefore VAT will be payable upon the agreed purchase price. A new gas boiler was installed in April 2019. There is a Right of Way for access to the side door over the adjoining property. The adjoining property may be available by separate negotiation, should the prospective purchaser require it. Please note, this is in separate ownership.The Area
