A much-loved hardware store in Harleston, occupied by the same owners for half a century is going under the hammer with Brown & Co.
1 The Thoroughfare, Harleston is for sale for a guide price of £175,000-£195,000 at auction. It comes after another former hardware store, in Aylsham, Clarke’s, was also sold recently.
The Grade II listed building in Harleston, formerly occupied by G Denny & Sons, offers substantial accommodation of around 4,500 sq ft and requires improvement and updating.
There is a two-storey timber-framed barn with a courtyard which extends to around 950 sq ft. This barn, in conjunction with a neighbouring piece of land, was subject to a favourable pre-planning application so conversion of this building is possible, subject to the necessary consents being obtained.
Plans were drawn up but not submitted to the local authority to convert the main buildings into a ground floor shop with separate flat above, plus three, two-storey townhouses at the rear.
