Property Overview
Southam is an attractive market town located approximately 8 miles to the east of Leamington Spa and 10 miles west of Daventry. Other centres, including Coventry (12 miles) and Banbury (13 miles), are also within easy travelling distance. Junction 12 of the M40 is within 5 miles and Junction 16 of the M1 is approximately 17 miles.

The town centre is focused upon High Street and Market Hill, with a mix of commercial, retail and leisure uses, whilst the main industrial area is located immediately to the south of the town. Originally comprising the Kineton Industrial Estate, this area has now expanded considerably providing further employment opportunities within the town.

Vivian House stands prominently at the junction of Market Hill with Park Lane, with public car parking to the forecourt area. The church yard is to the rear. The building is Listed and stands within a conservation area.

This prominent Listed Georgian building with cream painted, cement rendered elevations with a pitched tiled roof provides office and dentist accommodation at lower ground, ground and first floor level, with an independent top floor flat currently let by way of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. Communal hall, stairs and landings run through the centre of the building, with access from Park Lane. A further elegant entrance faces Market Hill and provides access to the front ground floor offices.

The ground and first floors are let to a Dentist Practice and the top floor 2 bedroom flat is let under an Assured Shorthold Tenancey. The lower ground floor is occupied by a Charity and is not currently income producing but the tenant pays outgoings.

The building has attractive period features and is well appointed with gas central heating boilers for the individual floors and good toilet and kitchen facilities.
