LOCATION This freehold property is set in Mannings Heath, a popular, affluent village, set approximately 2 miles to the South East of Horsham, with a regular bus service to both Horsham and also Brighton (and the villages between).
The property is set within the heart of the village on a prominent junction, with extensive window displays that is positioned between both bus stops, making it an ideal and highly visual trading point. The village has a varied range of residents, but is also poplar with visitors due to the Cricket Green, highly respected Mannings Heath Golf Course and attractive natural scenery for both walkers and cyclists.
THE PROPERTY This detached, post-war freehold building is currently both a “Village Store” and residential accommodation for the current owner. Its current configuration does offer a good blend of living and working with the store having been successfully run, by the current owners, since 1998.
They have built up a profitable business that has a Cafe/delicatessen, and offers a range of high quality farm produce, artisan breads, cut flowers, gifts and a selection of wines and beers. In addition there is a website that provides additional income potential for any future owners too.
However, if desired, the property could potentially either be sub-divided to create additional residential accommodation or converted to one large house, both subject to obtaining the relevant planning requirements.
