A substantial, prominent, three storey town centre property, standing in a prime trading position at the heart of the town centre. The extent of the accommodation, combined with its configuration, offers considerable versatility, of potential interest to investors, developers or owner-occupiers. The property occupies a key retail location and requires a scheme of renovation and possible part re-development, offering significant potential. Ground floor sales approx. 1,220 sq.ft. (113.34 sq.m.). The accommodation is currently configured to provide ground floor retail premises with sales, ancillary stores, W.C. and kitchen. The upper floors provide living accommodation, with separate access from the western (side) elevation. The retail premises have a prominent bay display window to High Street. In addition, the property has the significant advantage of full rights of access for all purposes, over the carriage passage and from Wharf Road to the south. The property retains many period external and internal features including fielded panelling to the shop front; pilastered side door case; sash and bay windows; cast iron ranges and fireplaces etc. The extent of the current living accommodation is significant and there may be potential to rationalise this into smaller units, albeit through flats on the upper floors or possible vertical sub-division of the rear section to create town houses (subject to planning). Horncastle is a mid-Lincolnshire market town situated on the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds at the crossroads of the A158 and A153, approximately 21 miles east of Lincoln. The town has a population in the region of 7,000 and offers a good variety of shops, schools and services and wide rural catchment area.
