Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION
Grantham is an expanding and popular market town in South Lincolnshire with a resident population of approximately 38,000 people as of the 2011 Census with an extensive catchment area. The town has been awarded Growth Point Status and is currently growing at a dramatic rate in both Residential and Commercial terms. Grantham benefits from excellent road communication links via the A1 to the regional road and national motorway networks as well as a mainline rail connection to London Kings Cross with a journey time of approximately 80 minutes.

Westgate is a popular and predominately Retail town centre location and houses many of the town´s historic buildings.

DESCRIPTION
The property briefly comprises a three storey end-terraced former Public House located on the corner of Westgate and Dysart Road. The property is currently vacant and has been subject to some internal works and offers the opportunity to be converted to Retail at Ground Floor level and where potential also exists for the Ground Floor element to be extended into the current car park to the rear to further enhance this element of the accommodation, subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained. Our client´s Architect have drawn up plans for such an extension which would still mean that car parking and loading facilities exist to the rear accessed directly off Dysart Road but where the extension may make the property suitable for use as a Convenience Store. The current gross internal area of the Ground Floor element of the property is approximately 1,668 sq ft (155 sq m) and where potential exists, subject to planning permission being granted for the extension proposed, to enhance this area to 2,874 sq ft (267 sq m). The two upper floors could potentially be converted to a number of Residential Apartments, subject to the relevant planning consent being obtained, where access to these would be obtained from the Dysart Road frontage via a dedicated Entrance Lobby.

Our clients are receptive to selling the property in its existing format on a freehold and vacant possession basis, however, they would also be interested in granting a new effective full repairing and insuring lease over the Ground Floor element of the property and potentially undertaking construction of any extension that a proposed occupier would like built and carrying out any internal refurbishment programme required subject to suitable lease and rental terms being agreed.
