DESCRIPTION
1 Market place, Hawes provides the unique opportunity to purchase a substantial freehold retail premises with fantastic living accommodation. It is situated on the market square in the honey pot town of Hawes in upper Wensleydale. The current owners run a very successful country clothing business with room for expansion, if desired. However, the property is perfect for a range of uses. It would make an excellent investment property.

Hawes is a busy town famous for it's cheese as well as the stunning surrounding countryside. It has a weekly open air market and a wide range of shops, restaurants & cafes, a primary school, church & chapel, doctors surgery and active community life. It is very popular with both tourists and locals alike. The property itself is positioned in a prime trading position on the bustling market square in the heart of the town.

The property itself is early 19th Century and retains all the charm from this period that you would hope for including beamed ceilings, feature fireplaces, panelled doors, sash windows.

On the ground floor double display window frontages leads to spacious retail areas totalling 1029 sq ft. There is also an inner hallway with side entrance and two further store rooms. The first floor consists of a large living room, dining room, modern kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a shower room. On the second floor there is a large attic area currently used for storage but could make for a fantastic bedroom suite.

The property benefits from a private entrance to the living accommodation via external stone steps located to the rear of the property. The property owns a small south-facing suntrap walled garden making a pleasant, quiet seating area.

Historically the property has been used for retail purposes for over 160 years. It is perfectly positioned to draw in the ample tourists visiting the area each year. The current business is very successful with profitable accounts, available on request.

Alternatively the property could make for a superb restaurant/tearoom premises under A3 planning. The property has gained planning permission for this use previously. However this planning has now lapsed.

The property would make an excellent investment property. The upstairs accommodation could be a fantastic holiday let in a prime location. You would expect to achieve an income of around £584 per week in peak season with the accommodation as it is. However, there is further scope to gain a higher income from this with further development of the second floor. The retail shop should comfortably gain a rental income of between £250 - 300 per week.

The ideal property and business for excellent living and working conditions in arguably the best trading location within a beautiful Dales Market Town.
