A beautiful Georgian shop described as 'one of the most handsome buildings in Holt' is for sale with permission to be a home again.
Anthony Fell, who has run his antiques firm from Chester House, Bull Street, for 20 years is selling the premises but not the business. He continues to trade and will do after the building is sold.
Chester House, a Grade II-listed, double-fronted town house with period features, is for sale for £400,000.
One of a pair of townhouses side by side, the property started out as residential and is believed once to have been the postmaster's house.
It also conceals the site of Holt Steam Laundry, once a major employer in the town, with factory premises that used to operate behind Bull Street.

At the rear is a walled courtyard which has parking for three to four cars.
