Property Description

Key features


Full description

A well presented and equipped Launderette with spacious owners flat, in the vibrant University town of Falmouth. With a good trading base, strong and consistent sales and profits.

Location - Trelawney Launderette is situated within a densely populated part of Falmouth town, within easy walking distance of the town centre, the harbour and beaches and Falmouth University Campus. Falmouth is an extremely sought after coastal town in which to both live and work, which has seen significant economic regeneration and expansion in recent years.

The Property - Trelawney Launderette is an attractive end of terrace 2 storey turn of the century building, comprising the well appointed launderette and service areas on the ground floor, with a side door giving access to the well appointed and recently refurbished 2 bedroomed flat on the first floor. We understand a launderette has traded on this site for the past circa 30 years, and has been in our client's tenure for the past 2 years who are now selling due to other commitments.

The Business - The business trades all year with the exception of Bank Holidays and a period over Christmas and trades from 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, closing on Sundays. The business is currently run by our husband and wife client and 2 part time members of staff (who are paid on a casual basis, without Contract).

In terms of the trade, the figures show consistent sales and for the most recent year, March 2016, show sales of £77,392, which produces an adjusted net profit of £28,950 (after deducting all normal overheads and in particular wages of £7,900 per annum and repairs and renewals during that period of £9,267, which is higher than previous years due to the investment in the property). We are advised the trade split is approximately 40% commercial in the high season, reducing to 20% in the low season, with the remainder being non-commercial.

Further accounting information will be made available subject to viewing the property in the normal manner.
