Cole & Son have been operating a garage transport business from Welsh Newtown for the last 50 years as a succession of members of the Cole family have helped in the Family Business delivering goods across the country. The business started with a former blacksmith's store and stone warehouse and later as business grew the family bought an area of land to the north which was reformed to include a retaining wall and the single storey steel portal framed building was erected and adapted to the topography of the site to include a lorry parking area which fronts the Monmouth to Hereford A466. There is a right of way access to a bungalow which is situated at the rear, in separate ownership.
To the front of the site is a large detached period house capable of being a large family house which has been used by the Cole Family to live & work at their business.
The main garage building consists of a steel portal frame building (built by Dales of Leominster) with an eaves height of (4.8m) 16' and an asbestos cement sheet pitched roof with profile sheeted roof lights. A forecourt area capable of parking three articulated lorries and some single storey block and stone built stores which abutt the existing residential dwelling. The storage areas are as follows:
Steel Portal Frame Main Workshop 393 sq.m (4,230 sq.ft)
Single Storey Shed 22 sq.m (236 sq.ft)
Former Blacksmiths 10 sq.m (108 sq.ft)

The description is garage & premises and the Rateable Value is £7,000.
The house is slightly set back from the road behind a low wall with the wrought iron gate to the front door porch canopy. There are two timber casement windows at ground floor level to the reception rooms and at first floor level a further two timber casement windows. The barge-boards to the house are slightly elaborate. To the right hand side of the house is a former blacksmiths store with mono-pitch roof and adjacent to that is the original stone outhouse first used for the truck business in the 1940's.
GARDENS & GROUNDS
Immediately behind the house is an access way through to the rear stores and a raised grass area bank used as a garden. To the north of the yard is a raised area of garden which is terraced down to a visibility splay. The garden has a willow tree in the middle and there is fencing to the neighbouring fields.

A residential dwelling set out as a three bedroomed cottage with two good sized reception rooms as follows:

Box Store Room 1.9m x 3.7m
Total Net Internal Area 1205 sq.ft (112 sq.m)
The garage is suitable in its existing use for a small business person that needs storage buildings and accommodation and the premises would suit a manufacturing business or “cottage industry”. The house could become offices and a staff canteen and any manufacturing processes could be stored within the 4200 sq.ft building. It may be possible to extend the building into an L shape and reduce the size of the yard. Alternatively the house could provide income from renting out the accommodation or providing a manager with accommodation as part of the business. It is envisaged that a Change of Use Planning Application may be necessary for a manufacturing use.
The property has mains electricity, mains water and private drainage. There is scope to upgrade the electrics to three phase power with the nearest supply, a field away behind the house.
