Built in 1929, this property was originally a local shop selling staple goods, hence its name and was an integral part of the local community in The Bay. In more recent times, the property has been extended and upgraded by the current owners, taking care to retain as many of its original character and charm, whilst incorporating some of the comforts of modern living, such as gas central heating and double glazing. To the rear of the property is a large dining/sun room which is open plan to the charming kitchen creating a wonderful family space which connects directly with the rear garden. In addition, there is a good sized lounge with an original fireplace and bay window and a generous double bedroom which leads through to a modern en suite bathroom.

Outside, there are gardens to the front and rear of the property along with off road parking for two vehicles to the side. The rear garden is pleasantly landscaped and offers good privacy.
