Located on the sea front in the well known and popular town of Southwold which offers excellent facilities including hotels, public houses, restaurants, a good range of shops with a thriving high street.
A Grade II Listed building known locally as 'The Casino', was built originally to serve as a garden reading house, was later a coastguard look-out and more recently a Royal National Lifeboat Institution museum and a radio broadcasting station. The property is a single storey, octagonal building with three large viewing windows with sea views.
This unique building lends itself to a variety of uses, with the owners Southwold Town Council, happy to consider a change in use for exciting new business proposals. With a commanding position on Gun Hill (overlooking the sea) you could not fail to be impressed by the nearby eighteen pound cannons. It is said the guns were given to the town in 1746 by the Royal Armouries, as a protection to shipping against raids. The nearby Southwold Pier generates nearly a million visitors each year and is proud to be the only 21st Century Pier in the UK. Surrounded by history and offering panoramic sea views this property offers a fantastic opportunity for a commercial enterprise on the ever popular Southwold seafront.
