THE  PROPERTY  - “County Buildings” is an imposing property that was built around 1910 from top quality glazed bricks with contrasting stone quoins and Flemish influenced gable details, under a Welsh slate roof.  It was built in the town’s heyday as a County Court and Police Station, and was very much in keeping with the great expansion of the town as a Spa Resort, with the best architects coming to design prestigious Hotels, etc, and trains arriving at the neighbouring Railway station direct from London.  The Courtroom is a magnificent room with wood panelling, double headroom, ornate plaster to the ceiling and a viewing gallery.  In addition there is a fine entrance hall with double doors and stone flooring, and the wide staircase to first floor has fantastic  original tiles to dado level.  This building offers huge scope for conversion into a large individual home, with a magnificent    drawing / music room - subject to planning consent (Note -  An outline planning application is being submitted by the vendor).
