I finally got full access to my mixed use property today and was pleasantly surprised. Now I need to decide what to do with it

Hi Gary, Is it the 1st video, ground floor store room your looking to convert into a Studio/Bedsit? Nice that you have abit of outside space on the 1st floor.
What purpose does the raised part of the flat roof serve in the middle of the roof terrace area 1st floor level?
Yes, ideally I'd like to convert the 1st floor unit to residential, but at the very least change the access. The room as you see it extends under the residential unit by around 3 or 4 meters so shouldn't be a major physical issue. The raised part is a covered in roof lantern - I haven't looked inside yet!
ps. That outside space has a very nice view of the Bristol Channel and the North Somerset coast
When you live there, you'll really appreciate that outside terrace area........many maisonettes and flats don't benefit from an outside space, so the fact you have that and it has views is a real plus........if you could remove the roof latern and get the full area decked, I'm sure you can make a great outdoor space......
Do you have a floorplan you can post?
How are you going to get natural light in there??? Bedrooms must have a window so your options may be limited. (I'd also try to have the post box moved from the middle of the pavement as it's a hazard).
No floor plan yet but I have another architect booked for next week. There is a roof lantern but I hope there will be viable options for windows.
I'll let the council worry about the post box, its on their pavement
Gary, that has loads of potential for resi conversion,
Interesting that people suggesting getting the postbox moved, if it were mine i would resist any plan to do that. If ever you get a void on GF lots of retailers will see that as a major plus point, anyone posting a letter has to walk to front of your shop, its a shame though that letters are in decline but thats another story.

Thank you Phil. I was happy with the maisonette, shop and store room. I've got somewhere to live with a commercial rental income and soon a couple of extra rooms or a flat for residential rental income. I was hoping for some hobby space in the basement but I had no idea what I'd find - I was very pleasantly surprised.
Agree with Phil, that postbox is a plus point, should in theory increase footfall.. Lots of small businesses still use snailmail..
