Tim Widdows, Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Reading office who is handling the sale comments, “The Malting House has been modernised by the existing owners but ceased trading in 2014 due to personal circumstances. It represents a good opportunity for a new operator as there is little other competition in the village and therefore a new offering would be welcomed by the local and wider community.
“This is an excellent property for someone looking for a lifestyle business or as an investment opportunity. Buyers are recognising the value of these beautiful period properties and their value to the local community and therefore we expect high demand.”
Christie & Co is seeking £500,000 for the freehold interest.
