A mid-terrace, two storey period building, thought to originally date from the mid-19th century. It comprises brick, timber and infilled render elevations with a pitched, tiled roof and successfully traded as a restaurant called Dolce Vita for some 20 years. The property is presently configured to provide an open-plan, double-fronted ground floor dining space with access into a commercial kitchen and WC facilities, along with stairs to the first-floor ancillary space consisting of two rooms to the front elevation, a further kitchen and additional WC facilities. Externally, to the rear of the building, is a storage shed and a walk-in fridge/freezer.
The premises currently have restaurant consent however enquiries are invited from established businesses within medical, beauty, aesthetics, clinics and similar service-type occupiers, as the building lends itself to alternative uses subject to the tenant securing any necessary change of use.
