Myddelton & Major Partner Simon Lee said: “We understand that Ed Esdon and his team will utilise the retail unit as an Architects Studio.

“We were also excited to discover that the first floor will be improved to create flat accommodation, part of an ongoing and welcome trend for conversion to desired usage where appropriate.

“Esdon Architecture specialises in all types of residential projects – from new builds and period renovations to contemporary conversions and extensions – and covers all areas of the south of England including London.”

The Grade II Listed building occupies a busy trading position fronting Fisherton Street, which forms a busy pedestrian link between the Railway Station and the City Centre.
