With substantial renovation works completed in September 2016, this large and beautifully presented property offers exceptional living accommodation as well as a commercial aspect, which currently harbours a thriving holistic health business.
Set back from the road in a quiet residential area, this property has a double gated entrance and all of its features are south-facing, including an impressive entrance courtyard leading to the residential and commercial aspects of the building.
Set over two floors, each of approximately 125 sq metres, there is flexible and spacious living accommodation as well as ample outdoor space and parking for 3 cars.
On the ground floor of the residential section is a very large (45ft long) open studio space, with beautiful wooden flooring and its own kitchen/Utility and large cloakroom. This room opens out to a good sized, well-maintained, enclosed courtyard garden, which acts as a wonderful suntrap for the afternoon and evening sun.
A large wooden staircase leads up to an impressive, open plan living space, filled with original features, including exposed wooden flooring and timber roof beams. Sensitively renovated, this room’s skylights and array of secondary glazed windows offer a light and airy feel, while maintaining its traditional style. A balcony, which overlooks the courtyard garden compliments this living area and the large, gas-fired Aga and woodburning stove, make for a comfortable and welcoming space.
Adjoining the living area is a hallway, which leads to three, good-sized bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. The bathroom is beautifully laid-out with a roll-top bath, walk-in shower, and window overlooking the courtyard.
Each bedroom easily accommodates a double bed, wardrobe and desk/dressing table, while the master bedroom has an en-suite and large, walk-in wardrobe. Accessed from the master bedroom is a conservatory, which offers an additional, private entrance leading to the outside parking area.
On the ground floor is the commercial area, which includes three independent rooms, currently used as therapy/treatment rooms and each with a wash-hand basin. Also on the ground floor is a second kitchen, as well as a storage room, which houses the newly installed battery equipment, offering independent power throughout the property for up to 7 hours and energized by the 15 roof-top solar panels. The commercial aspect to this property also benefits from small-business rates exemption.
The reception area, which provides access to the treatment rooms via a hallway (with fitted shelf units) has its own independent entrance, separate from the residential access.
With its rare combination of exceptional living accommodation and a profitable commercial aspect, this property offers something quite unique, and taking ownership would provide the opportunity to enjoy a luxurious home while benefiting from a readily available business income.
Located in the heart of the popular Cinque Port town of Rye, The Elysian Centre offers the opportunity to enjoy all that Rye has to offer without compromising on any of the benefits, which are usually only available with more rural properties – such as ample parking and outdoor areas.
Rye boasts a wide range of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants and is perfectly located, just 2 miles from the popular Camber Sands beach. Its hilltop setting and traditional cobbled streets make Rye a picture-perfect town, which is frequented by tourists throughout the year, helping to support the thriving high street businesses.
A direct train from Rye to Ashford international makes for easy access to central London via the highspeed link and everything the Southeast coast has to offer is just a short distance away.
Rye has a strong community spirit and its residents are friendly and welcoming. Anyone finding themselves with an opportunity to settle in this area would be hard-pressed to find a nicer setting for a family home, weekend retreat or even a new business venture.
