BUSINESS
Prior to the property becoming available as an investment opportunity, there was an established holiday letting business which enjoyed a successful trading history for over 40 years.

Such a path could easily be re-instated, possibly with some slight modernisation of the current facilities.
With only cosmetic adjustments, this property would make the ideal investment for a person wishing to own a set of holiday apartments with the potential to create 8 established letting rooms. However, it offers the flexibility to be used for a variety of other purposes, including the possibility of converting the property back to a house.

LOCATION
The property is located in the Northern coastal seaside town of Blackpool, just 40 miles from the City of Manchester on England's Fylde Coast. The property is well served and connected via public transport being a short walk from Blackpool South Rail Station and adjacent to numerous bus stops on the nearby promenade.

In addition, Blackpool is home to one of the most established and oldest electric tram networks in the world. The Blackpool trams connect it with neighbouring towns such as Fleetwood and Clevelys. The town of Blackpool benefits from being easily accessible from the UK motorway network with the M55 concluding in Blackpool.

The property further benefits from being in an ideal Central location within the town itself. Nestled amongst Guest Houses and Holiday Apartments the property is just a short distance from some of Blackpool's best known attractions such as the Blackpool Tower, Pleasure Beach Resort, Sea Life Centre, Blackpool Zoo and heaps more.
