To the first and second floors, there is a self-contained 3 bedroom maisonette, making the property attractive to those looking to generate an income from the maisonette or particularly ideal to those looking to run a business from home.
This building has plenty of character and has recently undergone a program of refurbishment within the maisonette, which is beautifully presented. With such a wide variety of potential uses, further viewing is advised in order to fully appreciate this unique opportunity.full description

Accurate valuation advice can be key to selling your home for the best price and in the right timescale. If you are asking too much, it will inevitably lead to no viewings or offers and the property will become stale before you know it. Of course, advertising too cheaply can often result in achieving a low sale price. The asking price needs to be right from the onset.
At Southgate Estates, we promise to always give honest and well researched advice. We spend time with our clients explaining how we have arrived at our valuation and make genuine recommendations on how to best market every home.
We offer free valuations and never use hard sales techniques to push clients into signing up on the day.
