This Grade II Listed freehold premises occupies a primary position in the heart of Kirkbymoorside. The location couldn't be more convenient for the town's amenities and the building itself is of fine appearance, standing proudly along the main thoroughfare at the junction where Howe End meets the Market Place.

Remarkably, the property has remained in the ownership of the same family since the 1700's and in recent times the ground floor retail shop has traded as a clothing shop, general gifts and cards and is currently occupied by Clocks & Moor, a small family business selling new and antique clocks alongside a repair service. There is approximately 61 square metres of sales area plus a store room at the rear.

A private entrance hall and internal staircase leads to a large, "lofty" apartment with spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. Most rooms have a good view across the town and there are plenty of period features throughout the property, as well as modern fixtures and fittings and gas central heating throughout. Currently, the apartment is used by the owners as a weekend residence but in the past it has been let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST). The rental market in Kirkbymoorside is buoyant and on an AST one would expect to achieve a rental income of £600 per calendar month, minimum.

Services: Mains water, electricity and gas are connected to the premises. Gas central heating in the Apartment.

Council Tax: We are informed by North Yorkshire Council that the Apartment falls in band C.

Rateable Value: The shop has a rateable value of £4,250

Tenure: We are advised by the Vendors that the property is freehold. Vacant possession of the Apartment will be given upon completion. The Shop is currently let to Clocks & Moor, a clock sales & repair business.

Viewing Arrangements: Strictly by prior appointment through the Agents.
