THE PROPERTY
Blue Anchor Café is a well established and successful café business with shop and living accommodation enjoying a prime coastal position with sea views.

The property has a very interesting history and origin. Until the 1930's West Bexington comprised only a few houses and mainly farmland. In 1932 the estate owner decided to develop the area as a holiday village. A clubhouse was built, together with an outdoor Olympic size swimming pool, a new road to the beach and car park, tennis courts and beach huts. At that time Bexington-on-Sea was renamed West Bexington. Blue Anchor Café was originally built as the club house adjoining the swimming pool. The holiday village never took off due to the war and post war the property was converted into a restaurant/café with a small shop.

Blue Anchor Café has been under the current family ownership for the past 60 years and is traditionally constructed with colour washed brick and rendered elevations under a slate roof and subject to enlargement over the years.

THE CAFE BUSINESS
It is a long established traditional café business together with a small shop which has been open until very recently 7 days a week during the main season. At one time evening meals were available. The business offers superb further revenue, business development and improvement potential as a café or restaurant/bistro, subject to any necessary further planning consents.

The property is available as a going concern with a comprehensive range of fixtures and fittings.

RE-DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL
The property also offers excellent potential for re-development of the existing property including alterations/enlargement or even demolition and new build (for one replacement dwelling only) subject to any necessary planning consents.

OUTSIDE
The property stands in a high profile and prominent corner plot adjoining Beach Road and a large council public car park.

There is customers parking lay-by with excellent potential to create additional parking and vehicular access.

ATTACHED STORES/FORMER GARAGE and DETACHED STORES/FORMER OUTSIDE TOILETS.

The property has extensive lawned gardens and grounds which principally face south enjoying the open sea and coastal views along the Jurassic Coast. There is also an adjoining paved terrace, covered pergola with seating area and a large ornamental pond.
