This beautifully presented 16th century property is located in a conservation area adjacent to other buildings dated from that era. Nearby is the church of St Michael with views over the river Waveney and surrounding area. Ley lines run though the building lending a sense of calm and purpose to which this building is now dedicated.
Many historic features are evident such as flagstone flooring, the same as the church. A wall painting has been found above one of the fireplaces and is under renovation and appears to date from the 16th century. The house has an interesting cellar which is thought to have been linked to the church at one time. One of therapy rooms has a fine fireplace and there are many period details throughout the property which has been restored to a high standard.
The shop provides a warm welcome to both public and clients and is styled in keeping with the building. All the therapy rooms are a delight being large with high ceilings and offering a real feeling of being at ease. The owners flat is also a joy and offers views from every aspect over the Waveney Valley facing south captures the sun from a decking area. Most enjoyable for outdoor use particularly in the warmer months.
The home and business will appeal to the truly discerning and offers a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial historic residence which will also generate an income. The whole building is presented in immaculate condition and an early viewing will fail not to delight.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF The business has two sources of income both from the shop and also from a fee charged to the self-employed therapists who use the centre. The shop provides a wide range of alternative and natural products sourced from local, national and global manufacturers including Neal's Yard, Australian Bush Flower, Arran, and Norfolk Lavender just to name a few, There are over thirty therapists offering an extensive range of therapies from Aromatherapy, Acupuncture , Shiatsu, McTimoney Chiropractor, Homeopathy and Counselling plus much more. The reception area also provides a Visitor Information Point for the local Waveney area hence the building is well used by all the community and visitors to the area.

As you enter into the shop you are immediately struck by the peace and calm that this 16th century building exudes. Measuring some 240 sq. ft it is a quiet oasis filled to the rafters with goods to entice. Beautifully presented, it is the entrance for all therapies as well as being a one stop shop for those in need of the many products available. This leads on to the comfortable waiting area and information shelves which provides local and Saxon therapy information.
On the ground floor there are two large therapy rooms, a new shower room with w.c and basin, as well as a new smaller kitchen area with a range of cupboards and sink for use by clients and therapists. There is also an additional large kitchen/utility room leading through to the lovely enclosed garden with long reaching views across the Waveney valley together with a paved courtyard and patio area. There is also a long internal workshop and shelving area to store stock for the shop. One of many storage areas available in the building.
On the first floor are two further therapy rooms, again large in size with high ceilings and very well equipped served by a newly fitted cloakroom for client use. There is ample storage for stock.
In addition on this floor is the private 1 bed flat having views to the church and the Waveney valley, good sized bathroom, an open plan living/dining room off which is the veranda with views down to the river, a modern kitchen designed with many windows to capture the scenery and a small office. This floor has previously been one large private 2 bed flat with separate feature lounge and it could easily be returned to this if the 2 therapy rooms were no longer required.
On the second floor are two more delightful large therapy rooms, one in particular with a large fireplace and a large storage area with access to the roof and eaves where the history of the building can be seen.
The whole building has a wealth of storage areas, central heating that can be divided between the flat and the business, the majority of windows are double glazed and is mainly carpeted throughout. Although in the middle of the town there is access by a right of way to get to the garden.
The garden with its long lawn, secluded by a high flint wall and fence has a small vegetable patch, fruit trees and mature shrubs. It is very private and again another great view over the Waveney Valley.
