the upper floor is a large 'L' shaped space featuring a high standard of natural finishes
Returning to the main building, the upper floor is a large 'L' shaped space featuring a high standard of natural finishes, flooring and uPVC double glazing/doors and insulated ceiling. Currently mostly used as a mix of office and dry stores however it is easy to see it would be a simple job to return it to its original use as a residential space.

One of the end products
One of the end products. The owners showed us a list of the current contracted buyers, clearly some intensive discussions need to be had between the seller and prospective buyers regarding the business aspects. Here we focus on the property and infrastructure.

Overview...

There are two parts to this instruction. Firstly, the land, buildings, fittings and furniture. This is matter for us to advertise as we do here. Secondly, the owners have an active honey business which we are advised has supported their family for something like thirty years, all the equipment is part of the business sale. This is mostly outside of our influence however we know the owners do not wish the sell the property without the business. If you have an interest, we will help as much as possible by organising meetings and negotiations.
We are aware of on-going contracts, brand protection and intellectual properties. It is not in our skill set however to advise on the value of these. The owners advise us they have comprehensive accountant's records.
