Life in the fast lane
Potential purchasers of The Kings Head, Byfleet, don’t need to be fans of vintage racing cars, Concorde and celebrity-spotting – but it would certainly be a bonus.
The suburban watering hole is just a short distance from Brooklands Museum, site of the world’s first motor-racing circuit and final resting place of a UK-built Concorde. It is also near Surrey’s prestigious St George’s Hill residential estate, which boasts its own golf course and tennis club and more than a sprinkling of famous names.
The pub has a U-shaped bar area, trade garden and parking for 25 cars. Upstairs is living accommodation with two bedrooms and a manager’s office. The property covers an area of approximately 1,300 square meters (14,000 square feet) and is being offered for sale freehold at £625,000.
“This is a substantial property in a popular residential area close to the M25,” says James Grimes, of licensed leisure specialists AG&G, who are handling the sale. “It offers a lot of potential for someone with money to invest.”
