The historic market town of Coleford is in the delightful Forest of Dean, close to the Wye valley. Well located for all motorway links (M50 & M48 are within a 12 mile radius) yet enjoys a full range of local facilities to include: Cinema, Post Office, Banks, Library, Shops, 2 Supermarkets, Pubs and Restaurants. Primary and secondary schooling with further education, Leisure Centre (at the college campus) and two separate Golf Courses.
A wider range of facilities are also available throughout the Forest of Dean including an abundance of woodland and river walks. The Severn crossings and M4 towards London, Bristol and Cardiff are easily reached from this area along with the cities of Gloucester and Cheltenham for access onto the M5 and the Midlands.
This is a substantial and imposing Grade II Listed town house arranged as 8 self-contained flats. The original building is believed to date from the late 18th century with a later 2 storey rear extension making it roughly T shaped. The flats are all approached from the rear with external staircases providing access to the upper floors. With all flats currently let this is a well established high income producing investment with the current rent at circa £40,000 per annum. Most of the tenants have been in in occupation for several years although the flats are now at a point where they would benefit from modernisation and improvement. With potential to increase rents once modernised or to break up an sell as well as further development possibilities the property is sure to be of interest to investors and developers.
