Description

Mill Garage has been successfully owned and run by our client’s family for over 65 years having been originally purchased by our client’s father in 1947. Our client now wishes to retire.

The business operates from a site approximately 0.8 of an acre which incorporates a large detached building with the MOT and service station, shop, Post Office, former bungalow, office and holiday lets. There is also an area to the right hand side of the site set to grass that has the potential for car or caravan sales.

Location

CASH PURCHASERS ONLY.

Mill Garage is located on the B3273, the main road into Pentewan village, which offers beaches, shops, a public house and a restaurant. Pentewan is dominated by the large Pentewan Sands Holiday Park, a caravan and camping site which covers much of the beach to the west.

The working fishing village of Mevagissey, itself a popular holiday destination, is within two miles, and St Austell is within five miles. Both the world famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project are within six miles. (All distances are approximate).

Internal Details

Approximately 700 sq ft with door to MOT/Service bay, door to post office counter and door to office. There is a range of shelving for confectionery goods, two upright drink chillers, an open dairy deck chiller, two greeting card display stands, news and magazine rack, free standing ice cream fridge, one central gondola with shelving, serving counter with one till position, national lottery terminal and cigarette gantry. The shop also benefits from a modern suspended ceiling, tiled floor with the Mace branding throughout.

The workshop benefits from two MOT/servicing lifts and an inspection bay with other various equipment related to its operation. It has large side and rear doors allowing easy access for vehicles.

The Post Office is currently designated under the Community Post Office model and is operated from a fortress style office to the rear of the store. The National Lottery is run through the Post Office. The Post Office contract may be subject to change with any incoming purchaser and this would be at the discretion of the Post Office Ltd.

External Details

The Texaco branded petrol forecourt is highly visible and easily accessed off of the B3273 from both directions. It has been maintained to a good standard.

There are four pumps with eight dispensers that dispense DERV and Unleaded Petrol. There is also a jet wash bay coal/log storage lockers and a gas canister cage. The forecourt is covered by CCTV.

Owner's Accommodation

There are currently five self contained holiday lets to the side and rear of the property benefiting from their own separate entrance. Each of these has its own kitchen, bathroom and sleeping accommodation for up to four persons per let.

The existing planning permission only allows these to be let during the summer months. These are operated by the owner on a turnkey basis.

The Opportunity

The business has been successfully owned and run by the same family for over 65 years, having been originally purchased in 1947. The current owner now wishes to retire.
