Internal Details

There was a fire in the building in 2018 which caused smoke damage. Our client has closed the business pending a re-fit. A new owner could take this opportunity to re-open as a newsagents with a brand new interior. The local area is becoming popular in the evenings, with new bars and restaurants opening, therefore a new off licence or other restaurant/bar business may be considered, subject to planning.

Owner's Accommodation

Both the second and third floors are vacant and with the addition of a bathroom suite and kitchen units would provide very spacious accommodation for sub-letting, subject to the terms of the lease. These floors could also be used for other business use, subject to planning consent.

Our clients ran a busy and profitable newsagents from the premises for over 10 years until the fire in 2018. The property is currently closed pending a re-fit.
