Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fantastic and rare opportunity to purchase a seafront property as a running business in a most splendid location overlooking the harbour, pier and beneath the Castle headland. The Sunrise Café has been operating under the current owners for over 20 years and is a solid business with strong accounts. The freehold property comprises the covered seating area, indoor cafe, kitchen, staff toilet, first floor workshop and a self-contained shop/kiosk above. The seating area to the front is leased from Scarborough Council on a renewable 21 year lease. There is also a potential development angle (STP) to create a two bedroom flat above the café with stunning sea views. Freehold price £295,000.

LOCATION: The property is addressed as No. 64 Quay Street but the seating area fronts onto Sandside, over looking the harbour and pier and being situated beneath the castle headland. This super prime location is very busy and benefits from high levels of footfall. The property is adjacent to the start of the Marine Drive where there is plenty of parking, and also opposite the Luna Park which acts as a magnet destination.

THE BUSINESS: The business has been established for over 20 years and is a popular cafe with strong consistent accounts. The current owners usually close down for two months in winter therefore the accounts are only based on 10 months trading per year. Accounts are available to bone fide applicants.

THE CAFE: The cafe comprises the indoor seating area with seating for up to 32 people. The room has a ceramic tiled floor, painted plaster walls, spot down lights and double opening doors out to the covered seating area.

THE KIOSK: The kiosk is owned by the freeholder but stands on land that is leased from Scarborough Council. Within the kiosk there is an ice cream fridge, whippy ice cream machine, drinks fridge x 2, hot water still, sink and hand wash basin and the espresso coffee machine.

Front Seating Area - the raised seating area in front of the kiosk is in the most prominent elevated position with beautiful views over the harbour and pier, with seating for up to 32 people.

STORE ROOM: The store room is at first floor level accessed via a set of timber steps off Quay Street. The room has a timber floor, brick walls and lighting and electricity.

THE SHOP: Above the kiosk there is 210 sqft timber lock up shop with a roller shutter, power, water and drainage. This could be used as an additional retail outlet as part of the cafe business, storage or let out to a tenant for additional income.

W.C.: There is a single W.C. with hand wash basin accessed independently off Quay Street.

SERVICES: The property is connected to mains electric and benefits from a 3 phase supply, mains water and drainage.
