John Truslove secures sale of prime Broadway High Street property

Worcestershire’s leading commercial property agents John Truslove have sold a Grade II-listed former art gallery in Broadway for close to £1 million.

Trinity House, 35 High Street, which was on the market for £1.25 million, has been sold as an investment to Cheltenham-based Bo Pop FIC Ltd.

John Truslove, who were joint agents with Lambert Smith Hampton, were instructed by Philip Armstrong and Philip Watkins, who were appointed joint administrators of Trinity House Paintings Ltd in June 2023.

Ian Parker, joint managing director of John Truslove, said: “Understandably, there was a significant amount of interest in this property, standing as it does in the centre of the High Street in one of the Cotswolds’ most popular towns.

“Freehold properties in this location and of this quality do not come on to the market often and we are pleased to have secured a sale to a local investor.”

Trinity House, which dates from the mid-18th century, was renovated around 1900. The three-storey property is built with traditional Cotswold limestone and has single-glazed timber framed windows, with a stone-tiled pitched roof.

Although listed as a mid-18th century property, the building originally dates from the early 1500s and is thought to have been a wheelwright’s premises for the 14th century Lygon Arms Hotel across the road.

The property extends to approximately 3,251 sq ft across the three floors with a single storey garage, accessed via a gated side driveway, to the rear.

Also to the rear is a stone paved, terraced garden which features a currently unused swimming pool.

A spokesperson for Bo Pop FIC Ltd said they were yet to confirm their plans for the property and were currently assessing their options.

John Duffy of law firm Addleshaw Goddard acted for the administrators and Louise Jones of Thursfields Solicitors advised the purchasers.
