Property Summary

This freehold property of over 1600 sq ft on a plot of 1900 sq ft is a strong investment opportunity. First time on the market since 1982, it has 2 dedicated parking spaces and a courtyard garden.

A rare opportunity to acquire the freehold that has been in the same ownership since 1982, the land dating back to 1907.

Currently the property is arranged with a retail and photographic studio on the ground floor. This is over 800 sq ft and has a kitchenette and a loo. It accesses a back courtyard with rear access path to and from Hardy Road. New radiators and Glow Worm Energy 12S boiler were fitted in 2016 and the boiler is covered by a Glow Worm 7 year warranty from 2016. A Texecom alarm-NACOSS GOLD-was installed, also in 2016, by Southern Security and is serviced by them. The ground floor was rewired including hard wired smoke alarms and had new lighting installed in 2016.

The first floor is arranged as a 2 bedroom flat with separate entrance to the side of the building. Again over 800 sq ft with a new kitchen fitted in 2019. The existing tenants have lived here for the past 8 years.

The whole property sits on a plot of 1904 sq ft and the soffits and gutters have been replaced in the last 4 years. There are 2 parking spaces on the tarmacked drive at the front of the property.

Our view is to achieve the best return for the investment if regular income is your goal, then conversion of the ground floor to residential(permitted development) as a 2 bedroom flat or 2 studio flats, the projected income would be between £19,200pa and £21,600, a minimum gross yield of 5.33% based on £40k conversion costs. Please feel free to discuss with us.

Or of course, convert to a residential home.
