Fantastic Commercial Investment Opportunity for Sale in Cumbria

  • Reference: 1478
  • Location: Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this fantastic commercial property, an ideal investment opportunity for any discerning entrepreneur.

The property is split over three storeys with the ground floor presently, and for the last 32 years, occupied by Bright Ideas, a gift shop owned by our client. The property only is for sale as our client looks towards retirement.

The substantial size of the property lends towards a multitude of potential uses, possibly retaining the retail area on the ground floor, and subject to planning permission altering the two upper levels for conversion into two flats to be used as either owner accommodation or let out to generate additional revenue, easily achievable by a professional investor. Access to the first and second floors would need to be obtained by planning but should not be a problem.

The building is in a fantastic trading position in the town centre and highly visible from the street. It is in good condition and very reasonably priced compared to other properties in the area.
