Property Description

Full description

This is an opportunity to purchase a superb property that would be ideal for the investor or those wanting to start their own business.

The shop premises itself is over 40ft long and has been extended to the rear. It was a sunbed shop and therefore has been split into smaller treatment rooms to house the sunbeds. These rooms are currently partitioned and therefore it would be easy to remove them if required to provide a wider and more spacious shop area. Beyond the shop area, there are still further treatment rooms which could be doubled up as small offices if required.

Whilst to the first floor, there is a 2 bedroom self contained flat that brings in rental of 5,200 per annum. The flat would provide perfect living accommodation for someone wanting to live and work in the same area or alternatively would provide additional income towards the business.

The flat does benefit from UPVC double glazing, together with full gas fired central heating from a new boiler.

Finally, the property is in an ideal location next to Marple Post Office and therefore there is a heavy amount of foot traffic and is an ideal spot.
