Ashford, one of Kent's designated growth centres, currently has a population of approximately 75,000 inhabitants and is set to grow substantially in the next 20 years.

This attractive three storey timber framed building under a hipped tiled roof is Grade II* listed, and it is believed to have been constructed sometime around the 15th or 16th century. The ground floor lock-up sales area comprises just under 1,000 sq. ft. and was last used as an estate agents' offices although it has more recently been partly refurbished and is now awaiting re-occupation. There is a little over 400 sq.ft. of basement storage accommodation including WC. The shop benefits from two doors onto the High Street but has full height glazing to front and size elevations along with two rear windows onto the Churchyard. The premises are available for any use under Use Class 'E' and are therefore capable of being used for retail sales, financial services or similar and restaurant uses, although it is not anticipated given the Listed status of the building that any extraction systems would be permitted.
