The ground floor and basement is traded as hair and beaty salon. The uppers are in residential use with independent access from the rear. The property is near to Asda and Morrisons offering great amenity for residents and near free short-term parking for users.
The flats have been refurbished within the last five years to a very high standard, including re-roofing, redecoration and are fully compliant The property provides the opportunity to convert the lower level commercial space into residential to create further flats or potentially communal occupation.
The shop and flats have been let by the current owner on an informal basis. There is the opportunity for a future buyer to formalise these agreements. We consider the ground and basement rent to be quite low and would expect the market rent of between £10-£12,000 might be achievable offering reversionary potential.
