Sprinkle a little creativity with a good dollop of imagination and mix together to create your own perfect blend of magic in The Coach House, Bassaleg.

Grade II listed with Tudor detail and dating from the mid 19th century, it comes complete with retail planning permission, offering a unique and original investment opportunity.

Several times winner of Best Kept Village, Bassaleg is know for its charm and thatched cottages, and the Coach House is no exception to its charisma. It boasts three large coach doors, with central gable and slate roof, and decorative red sandstone and attractive brickwork. Quirky features and arched, double-boarded timber doors add further to its kerb appeal.

There’s a private forecourt area to the front, which could be enclosed with a post and chain fence, whilst inside the conversion potential is only limited by your vision. Imagination is the beginning of creation…

The freehold Coach House has already secured class A1 planning permission for retail use, where possibilities include a shop, post office, delicatessen, sandwich bar, showroom, hairdressers, and dry cleaners, to name but a few.

Approved plans for a delicatessen have already been drawn up, and we can palpably imagine the delicious wafts of charcuterie platters and smorgasbord of cheese varieties. As part of these plans, approval has been granted to alter the property internally, including the creation of a kitchen and feature display shelving. Proposed window seating behind the open coach doors drinks in the natural daylight. The character of the building, meanwhile, remains reassuringly constant, as the current plans illustrate.

Alternatively, reapplying for A3 planning permission to include food and drink use, such as a restaurant, takeaway or café with consumption on the premises could also be considered. Or perhaps you might have A2 financial and professional services use in mind.

Whatever line of business you choose, you’ll be in good company, with a great selection of friendly retailers in the locality. Next door, the traditional Cottage Team Rooms serve breakfast and lunch as well as a home cooked roast dinner on Sundays. And cream teas, of course!

Adjacent, just a few metres to your other side, and with a lovely beer garden to the rear, you’ll find the fully refurbished and family friendly Tredegar Arms by Greene King. Once upon a time, this fabulous Coach House served this very Inn.

It’s a superb opportunity to breathe life back into a wonderful heritage building, and be an integral part of the close-knit community. Bassaleg is a highly sought-after location with a demographic to match; a strong foundation for any business owner.
