Sold £430,000

On the instructions of the Joint LPA Fixed Charge Receivers

The property forms the upper three floors of a substantial four storey Grade II Listed Building with frontages to both High Street and Bank Street in the centre of the County Town of Maidstone. It has previously been used as offices with each floor arranged as partitioned office accommodation together with kitchen and W.C. facilities on each floor.

It is considered the accommodation may be suitable for conversion into residential and, in this respect, a copy letter, dated 13th February 2018, has been received from Maidstone Borough Council, in response to a request for pre-application advice in respect of a conversion of the offices to provide 18 studio flats, subject to conditions. A further scheme of 12 self-contained flats has also been prepared.

A copy of the aforementioned letter from Maidstone Borough Council, together with the scheme drawings, will be available to download from the Clive Emson website or inspection at the Auctioneer's Office.
