Spacious Freehold shop premises on three floors plus basement with courtyard garden and occupying a prime location, potential for part residential conversion (subject to usual consents).
The property is centrally situated on Petworth's busy New Street within a few metres of the Market Square in the attractive old market town of Petworth. Perhaps best known for the National Trust owned Petworth House with its beautiful 750 acre parkland (designed by Capability Brown), the town benefits from a regular farmer's market, excellent butcher and deli, a wealth of antique shops, and an assortment of eateries. Schools in the area include Petworth Primary School, Midhurst Rother College, Seaford College, Dorset House and Conifers to name but a few. Chichester (13 miles) provides excellent shopping and leisure facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre. In addition to the restaurants in Petworth itself there is a good supply of country pubs and fine restaurants in close proximity. Sporting activities include golf at Cowdray Park, Polo at Cowdray Park and horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell. Communications with London are surprisingly easy with mainline stations at Haslemere (9 miles Waterloo 60 mins.) and Pulborough (4 miles Victoria 70 mins.) The A3 (M) is within a 14 mile drive providing easy access to London Heathrow and Southampton airports and the motorway networks to the north and south.
