There are 2 front street accesses with on street parking outside the building and a quiet private rear car-park with access in the grounds, with several parking spaces on a tarmac and paved surface.

There is parquet flooring on the ground floor, 6 modern bedrooms on the 1st floor, with hand basins and vanity units. To finish a large loft. The entire property has fairly modern electrical installations and plumbing. Both the 2 bathrooms upstairs and 2 downstairs are also recent.
The grounds are mostly tarmac although there is a garden area, the entire property is walled providing privacy and security.
The property was once used as a private care-home and is currently a residential dwelling and would make an excellent B&B or hotel in this very touristic area if required, or potentially an office or business use. It also has additional scope for usage or rental of the separate detached school house, possibly for business/residential purposes and conversion of the detached coach house for investment or rental.
This property provides a rare opportunity to purchase one of the major freehold properties in the village.
