Location The property is situated on the east side of London Road, next to Cote Brasserie and opposite the Post Office and Stag Theatre.
Description and Works Undertaken The property is arranged across ground, basement and two upper floors.
Internally, the shop has been totally renovated with a replacement floor and staircase to the basement which has been reinforced and ‘tanked’ to prevent ground water ingress. Presently the shop is offered in ‘white box’ condition ready to accept an incoming fitout. The retail unit would particularly suit a smaller business in need of display space due to the large window openings facing London Road and into The Shambles.
The Residential component has been separated from the shop with an access door located within the flank elevation. A timber staircase provides access into the flat. Full fitout is required however there are full services gas / water/ drainage and electricity. The main pitched roof has been completely renovated with all tiles removed and replaced accordingly.
Measured Areas The accommodation comprises a total area of approximately 1,054 square feet (98 square metres) gross internal area.
Planning and alterations The Use Class for the ground floor and basement is A1 Retail which means the shop can be used for a range of retail uses including; a shop, hairdressers or sandwich bar. Other uses outside the A1 category described above, will require planning consent.
