Iconic Buckingham building goes on the market
A historic former garage in the centre of Buckingham is being sold with potential for conversion into a home.
The Garage, on Well Street, is a Grade II-listed 18th-century terraced property which was converted in recent years into a restaurant.
In its past it was used as a meeting house, then school then garage.
The property is now being marketed by Savills Banbury, with a guide price of £695,000.
It retains much of its character and period features including exposed roof and ceiling timbers, arched windows, leaded lights, wooden flooring and the pair of petrol pumps that flank the entrance.
Laid out over two floors, Savills say: "There now exists scope for conversion to alternative uses particularly residential, subject to the relevant consents."
"At present there is a large seating area to the ground floor and bar to the rear with further seating on the first floor where there is an extensive commercial kitchen and serving area. There are WCs both levels plus storage.
"The property offers light and airy space, more akin to a New York apartment, all very much the creation of the current owners.
"Historically the building enjoyed a courtyard which has since been covered over. There is opportunity to convert this area back into an outside space with the relevant consents."
However, the property on busy Well Street has no garden and no off-street car parking.
Savills spokesman Nicholas Rudge said: “The Garage is a unique opportunity to purchase an iconic property and offers great potential to create a large family home inside the walls of a historical building.For more information please contact Nicholas Rudge on 01295 228002.
