Oddfellows Hall High Street TisburyTisbury’s Oddfellows Hall, most recently home to a cycle shop, has a new owner.

Property consultancy Myddelton & Major has successfully negotiated the sale of the historic building which is in a sought-after location in Tisbury High Street.

The building, which has a self-contained three-bedroom flat above a shop, had a quoting price of £275,000 for the freehold with vacant possession.

Myddelton & Major partner Simon Lee said: “This historic building, which was previously a cycle shop with a flat above, has been bought by a private purchaser.

“Originally built as a meeting hall, the Oddfellows Hall has a long and fascinating history and was used as the HQ for the Tisbury Home Guard during World War II.”

The shop has a net sales area of 905 sq ft (84.07 sq m), with 375sq ft (34.84 sq m) of ancillary storage and a separate WC.
The flat above, which is accessed via a separate side entrance, has an entrance hallway, three bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and a sitting/dining room.

The detached two-storey building fronts on to the upper end of Tisbury’s High Street, adjoining the Boot Inn, with predominantly residential properties around.
