Full description

An excellent opportunity for a mixed retail and residential investment.

The property comprises a ground floor 'lock up' shop unit currently let to 'Mind', the national mental health charity, together with two vacant first and second floor flats above, all offering the potential for a gross income in the region of £15,000 per annum and situated in the heart of this busy North Cumbrian town.

Wigton, with a population of around 6,000, lies between the A595 and A596 trunk roads linking Carlisle, 11 miles to the east, with Cockermouth, Maryport and the more industrial centres of West Cumbria beyond. Both the Lake District National Park and the Solway Coast, now an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, all within a few minutes' drive to the south and north respectively.

The town supports an excellent range of day-to-day facilities including general shops and small supermarkets, hotels and public houses, primary and secondary schools, numerous sports clubs, handsome parish church, swimming baths, library, medical centre and both bus and rail services. The M6 and main West Coast Railway Line station are both available at Carlisle.

The shop is currently let at a rent of £550 per calendar month (£6,600 per annum) exclusive of all outgoings. The flats are both vacant but the last assured shorthold tenancy was agreed at £350 per calendar month (£4,200 per annum), again exclusive.
