Property Description

Full description

Due to retirement we present this superb freehold opportunity to purchase a well established garage currently run as a successful fuel/ shop and car sales business. The property is situated with a stunning amount of passing trade reflected in a turnover in excess of £1,000,000 and should suit a variety of purposes. In our opinion it would benefit from developing the premises into a much larger retail space/ petrol station and/or car showroom. EPC 'E'.

Business - This is an exciting opportunity for a buyer to take on this well established family run business that has been operating in Thirsk for over 60 years and comes to the market due to retirement. The site itself is ideal to use as a petrol station with the addition of car sales or for alternative use for which there is ample potential in a commercial capacity due to the sheer volume of passing trade.
With an annual company turnover of in excess of £1,000,000 the business is currently very successful and can only be improved by further investment, refubishment and development. In our view the site would be improved with a much larger shop positioned further to the rear of the site.

The petrol station consists of a forecourt with 3 petrol pumps and a canopy. Each petrol pump has two hoses and there are also three separate fuel tanks that each have a 3000 gallon capacity. The forecourt is large enough to accommodate additional parking and a car sales area to the side of the main building can take approximately 25 cars, this space is currently undeveloped and has potential to be utilised in anumber of ways depending on the requirements of the purchaser. In addition there is a shop selling a wide range of confectionary, tabacco, newspapers and accessories. The main shop has two windows looking out to the front and benefits from two storerooms and a separate w.c.

This business sits within a sizeable plot and there is potential for a buyer to completely alter the existing business if required to create a new commercial opportunity as aither a car showroom, large petrol station or shop or a variety of purposes subject to planning.

Location - This is an excellent and rare opportunity to purchase a business in a prime location on the A19 where it converges with the A168, ideal for passing business and close to local amenities being only one of three petrol stations in Thirsk and the only one on this side of town. This is an ideal location on the A19 corridor within easy reach of Thirsk where there is a flow of commuter traffic to both York and Teeside. With a busy local road network and proximity to local town traffic the business is perfectly placed and the nearest petrol station South on the A19 is at Shipton by Beningbrough.
