Property Details

Description: Lynwood has been in the same family for nearly 50 years and the current owner for almost 40 years of them. A much loved and cherished home and business, its now time to pass on to another generation as retirement beckons for the current owners.

Built in 1865 this property benefits from a corner plot, which not only gives it a prominent trading position, but also slightly larger accommodation and room sizes. We understand it was built for a retiring ships captain who designed the first floor corner window to resemble the stern of a ship.

The property has been carefully maintained over the years and indeed each letting en-suite bedroom was refurbished in 2013. The owners are rightly proud of their business. Full accounts can be made available once the property has been viewed.

The extensive accommodation is arranged over 3 floors plus a converted basement and comprises ground floor residents lounge and separate dining room leading through to owners open plan living room, kitchen replaced in 2016 and utility.
