Buckleys Tea Rooms is a well renowned property situated in a prominent location within the centre of this highly sought after North Essex village.
Buckleys Tea Rooms is an attractive Grade II listed property displaying a wealth of character and charm throughout and is distinctly segregated into different sections which have been utilised by the current owners as tea rooms, village shop, post office and in the past, it has also been a bicycle shop and an art gallery. The tea rooms have been running for approximately 30 years and are well respected and attended by members of the local community and passing trade. The property benefits from frontage to the main village street and has an attractive outside seating area.
Our understanding is that it is has classifications of use for the following: A1, A3 and C3. Please refer to the agents notes for details.
The majority of the ground floor and upper ground floor is utilised as a tea room and amounts to approximately 1300 sq ft of retail space. The main portion of the ground floor area is utilised as a tea room and it is set within a magnificent part of the building with a wealth of exposed timber on display and two large bay windows to Magnolia Lane making it a lovely bright and attractive space. There is a serving bar and chiller unit within this area alongside a coffee bar, behind which is the kitchen. The upper ground floor has been used as a more informal area with armchairs and tables and also has a separate bar with chiller units behind to make full use of the daytime licence for serving alcoholic beverages. There is an attractive oak stud work screen which divides a further area within this room, beyond which is a lobby with two cloakrooms.
From the ground floor of the tea rooms, steps lead down to another retail space which is currently utilised as an office and this has a delightful inglenook fireplace and would readily serve as further cover space if required. Currently the owners have the tea rooms set up to provide 32 covers on the ground floor and 18 covers on the upper ground floor. There are stairs that rise from behind the serving counter to the first floor apartment above.
Two glazed double doors directly access the post office and shop area which is sub divided into two portions, one for the shop and one for the post office. This is a particularly useful retail space and offers nearly 1000 sq ft with large picture windows to the front making it ideal for shop displays and there is a further entrance into a foyer off Luces Lane which accesses a store room with a sink adjacent to which is a cloakroom.
The first floor apartment is absolutely charming and has a wealth of exposed timbers on display, a vaulted ceiling and three sash windows giving views toward St James Street and the village roofline. There is a large principal reception room which enjoys the aforementioned views, adjacent to which is a bedroom with a corner vanity unit. A landing from the principal reception area accesses a second bedroom which has an en-suite bathroom. The first floor apartment would benefit from some redecoration and replacement of the sanitaryware and would readily accept a kitchen if a new owner wished to make it completely self-contained.
Agents Notes The post office and shop are moving to another location within the village, which would allow a new owner to use this space to suit their preference and requirements.
