Set on Stafford Street in the centre of Market Drayton, for many years this Grade II listed property served the town as a popular fish and chip shop.

But in the last couple of years, it has been transformed into a family home and now it's up for grabs.

There's also a cellar and the chippy's former prep room is now in use as a large utility room with an attached WC.

Upstairs features three good-sized bedrooms - one of which is currently being used as a home office.

In addition to the accommodation of the main house, an attached annexe features an independent entrance into a spacious living room, as well as a kitchen, shower room and double bedroom.

Externally, a gated driveway off Stafford Street runs along the side of the property and opens out to a large parking area with two garages. The property also features a large roof terrace that sits over part of the annexe.
