THE PROPERTY
The property has a very interesting history and is understood to date back to circa 1570 and is Listed Grade II of architectural or historic importance. There is a blue plaque stating that this part of the street was known as the Butter Market. The property was formerly part of a hotel known as The Tudor House Hotel and is the main and most important portion.

The property is currently occupied on a mixed residential/commercial basis comprising a shop/gallery (trading as The Mermaid Shop and Gallery), family use and 2 letting bedrooms for bed and breakfast/AirBnB.

The property offers tremendous potential for a whole range of uses either as a private home or for home and income/commercial uses, ie bed & breakfast or as a restaurant/café (subject to any necessary planning consent).

There is a host of character features including flagstone floors, shipwrecked beams (allegedly some of the beams may be over 1,000 years old), vaulted ceilings, exposed 'A' frames, exposed floor boards, exposed blue lias stone, plank and muntin, period fireplaces including a superb Inglenook, picture rails, panelled doors, deep skirting boards, window seats and shutters, high ceilings, medieval well and even two former priest holes.

The extensive accommodation is arranged over four floors and from the upper floors enjoys views over the town rooftops with glimpses of the sea and The Cobb.

On the ground floor is a lobby, reception hall/shop/gallery, former telephone booth and large sitting/family room with a fine Inglenook fireplace and wood burner and secondary back stairs. On the lower ground floor is a very large open plan kitchen/living/dining room with fitted kitchen including an electric oven and gas hob featuring substantial beams, flagstones floors and a stone laid medieval well with fossils. French doors lead onto the rear courtyard.

The upper floors again boast numerous historic features. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms and there is also a separate wash room.
