From a residence with a hatter’s shop to a home with a dental practice, the Old Bank House at Llanfair Caereinion in Powys has had a mixed use since it was built in the 1830s and has now been placed on the market for sale.
The property, situated in the heart of the small Mid Wales market town, is a mixed residential and commercial property with a dental practice currently operating from part of the building at the top end of Bridge Street.
“The Old Bank House is well known to anyone who passes through Llanfair Caereinon,” said Rob Hudson, a partner at Mid Wales and Shropshire chartered surveyors and estate agents, Morris, Marshall and Poole who are acting as sellers on behalf of the vendor.
“It was built around 1830 to 1840 as a single house, but we understand a shop was inserted around 1900.
“Historians believe it was a hatter’s shop at that time and photographs taken by a local photographer at the time appear to back this up. In more recent times the shop part of the property has been let as a dental practice.”
The oil fire heated property provides five bedrooms, including two attic bedrooms, a kitchen, hallway and a utility room.
In addition it has an enclosed rear yard with a brick and stone outbuilding. The commercial part of the property, let to the dental practice, include a reception and waiting room, with a room to the rear and an examination room.
“The combination of the living accommodation, outbuilding and commercial element make it quite a unique investment opportunity in the town,” added Mr Hudson.
“The sale is subject to the occupancy of the dental practice, which rents the commercial part of the building.”
The property is being sold for £175,000 and more details can be found at www.morrismarshall.co.uk or by calling 01938 554818.
