A LANDMARK Taunton florist is on the move.

County Flowers' premises, in East Reach, is on the market as the business looks to relocate after eight years in the store, 21 years trading in Taunton.

The shop and self-contained maisonette are now on the market at a guide price of £225,000 with agent Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

The mid-terrace Grade II listed property comprises a ground floor lock up shop with garden and a separately accessed three-bedroom maisonette on the first and second floors.

"The shop extends to 872 sq ft and enjoys excellent frontage onto East Reach," said a Greenslade Taylor Hunt spokesperson.

"It includes sales, kitchen and stores with a garden at the rear. There is also on street parking close by.

"The large maisonette has been modernised with carpets, a fitted kitchen and bathroom recently installed. It extends to 1,129 sq ft."

County Flowers, which is run by florist Denise Cross and her partner David Hollow, is in the running for the prestigious British Floristry Association’s florist shop of the year, while Denise has been shortlisted in the floristry tutor of the year award.

“Nobody works in floristry for the money you earn. Everyone is passionate about what they do,” said Denise.

This is an excellent opportunity for a trader looking to expand their business in a well-established shopping area.
