This landmark former cafĂ© enjoys a commanding position at the junction of Bath Road, High Street and Watch House Lane and traded for many years as the Watch House Barn cafĂ© with residential accommodation on the first and second floors.
The building is now vacant and requires a programme of upgrading and refurbishment to the existing accommodation, part of which has suffered from some fire damage, but is sold with the significant advantage of consent for an additional two-bedroom residential unit by way of conversion of part of the side and rear of the existing building.
There is an attractive sea view along Watch House Lane from the bay windows on the first and second floors. A more panoramic sea view over the Solent is available from the rear windows.
Two distinct commercial spaces to include the former cafĂ© and ancillary space to the side, former kitchens, store rooms and ancillary space to the rear.

Landing, two further letting rooms and shower room/W.C.
