Property Description

Substantial detached property on the fringes of the historic border town offering scope for improvement/development subject to relevant permissions.

Property Details

Originally built as a Railway Hotel, this substantial landmark property over four storeys enjoys 20 plus rooms including a stable and a commercial room with double doors onto the street that could be used for a variety of businesses. This development opportunity previously had planning for conversion to three houses, but would also lend itself ideally to conversion into up to eleven sizable apartments, including conversion of the attic space. There is scope for the property to be used as business premises, e.g. B&B, Hotel, Walker's Bunk House, Offices, or Live-Work space for a self-employed business person subject to relevant permissions. This property is located at the heart of walking country and is literally a stone’s throw from the Railway station on the scenic Heart of Wales Line that links it with county town of Shrewsbury, and Crewe and Telford to the North and rural Wales and eventually Swansea to the South. Faster trains are due in 2022. Because Knighton has its own telephone exchange, broadband speeds are good; ’super fast broadband’ is also available with a fibre cabinet opposite the property, and an underground conduit was recently installed under the road to the property by Open Reach, potentially reducing the cost of installation of fibre to the property if this is required. The property is situated in a rural area of natural beauty frequented by tourists & walkers and is on the edge of a market town providing amenities. Knighton benefits from two National Trails, it is at the mid point of the Offa’s Dyke Path (many walkers choose to walk this 177 mile trail in two halves), and at the beginning of 135 mile Glyndwr’s Way running west into Wales. The property is not listed and is not in a conservation zone, making it an attractive development project.
