A rare opportunity to acquire a Grade II Listed, mixed use development in the heart of Benson Village. The Court House forms part of Monarchs Court which dates back to the 17th Century and was formally The Old Red Lion. It is reputed to be where Charles I held his court at Benson on his flight to Oxford during the civil war.
The Ground floor currently has commercial usage and has a useful separate entrance from the rear courtyard. It comprises of a large multi-window office/ workspace plus a W/C and three further rooms that could be utilised as office space or storage. We believe that there would be a good argument for the ground floor usage to be changed subject to the correct planning permissions due to the fact it has not been “used” as commercial premises for over 30 years.
The first and second floors have residential usage and have been meticulously restored back to the property’s 17th century heritage with an abundance of period features including stunning exposed beams, beautifully restored sash windows and feature fireplaces. The first floor comprises of a large, characterful sitting room with adjoining Dining space, Kitchen, Utility and Bathroom. The Second Floor is where the two bedrooms are located with the Principal Bedroom having the most amazingly exposed beams. Off the Landing is a small W/C and there is also access to the Roof Terrace.
