‘Gem’ of a Cotswolds antique centre for sale with £395,000 price tag

April 14, 2014

A former antique emporium on the edge of the Cotswolds described as an architectural gem has come onto the market.

The Grade II-listed building, pictured, formerly trading as the Antiques Arcade, in Lechlade is made up of a traditional Cotswold stone terrace of single and two-storey buildings which were originally four separate dwellings. It sits in a prominent position in the town’s conservation area.

Agents Alder King, which is handling the sale of the arcade with a guide price of £395,000, says it offers potential for conversion or change of use, subject to appropriate planning consents. 

The building, which has just over 4,000 sq ft of accommodation, is divided into a series of interconnecting rooms with a wealth of period character, including exposed timber beams, an inglenook fireplace, stone floors and feature window. It also has a garden area approached by a side alleyway.

Partner at Alder King’s Swindon office, James Gregory, said: “This is an architectural gem – a unique character property in an attractive market town which is also a popular tourist destination. It offers a number of opportunities for conversion or change of use which we’re confident will generate substantial interest.”

Alder King has been instructed by accountants Hazelwoods acting as liquidator for previous owner Riverside (Lechlade) Ltd, which was wound up in 2012.
