Several items of furniture, including a wardrobe, drawers and work tops, will be given away for free at the Old Stagecoach Inn next week. The historic inn on Station Road, which dates back to the late Victorian era, is being marketed Freehold, with vacant possession, by Christie & Co, Bristol at a guide price of £695,000.
Originally known as the Queen’s Hotel and built in homage to Queen Victoria, it was purpose built around 1882 to accommodate railway travellers. Only two minutes walk from Crewkerne Railway Station and overlooking green fields, it is ideally situated to cater for bar and restaurant trade to regular commuters and visitors attending a wedding, function or private party.
Accommodation in the three story detached building consists of five bedrooms and two bathrooms over two floors. The ground floor area, which currently houses a bar, indoor games area, lounge, dining/function room, kitchen and ladies and gents toilets, could be converted from commercial to residential use with planning permission.
A pre-planning application has already been received by South Somerset District Council, 20/02609/PREAPP for the potential development of the main building to form three flats. The outside chalets, which have remained in constant use and consist of 10 family rooms and three double rooms with ensuite showers and toilets including an adjacent area of land, could provide six individual dwellings, should the initial enquiry result in a full planning application and be granted by SSDC. The furniture to be given away is listed on The Old Stagecoach Inn Facebook page.
