Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market a prestigious commercial/residential investment property located just off the highly desirable marketplace in Northumberland.
The corner positioned stone built property is arranged over 4 floors with 3 of the floors being used for commercial use (currently a high-end salon business) and the top floor housing a luxury 1 bedroomed apartment.
The investment property is being sold with our client’s salon business in situ which could easily be transferred on to any new owner looking to purchase a freehold ‘Turn-key’ salon or alternatively be rented out to provide new rental income (similar sized units in this area achieve a rental income of around £20,000 per year).
The top floor luxury apartment would make an ideal holiday let or private long term rental investment (similar apartments in the area achieve a rental income of around £650 pcm).
Our client purchased the run-down property in early 2020 and embarked on a complete refurbishment programme (excess of £100,000).
Schedule of works carried out include –
- New electrics throughout
- New heating systems in both the commercial floors and top floor apartment
- New plastering and remedial work on each floor
- Refurbishment of all the windows including new skylights.
- Refurbishment of all the original features and fireplaces
- Upgrading of all rear access areas
- A contemporary hair & beauty salon space is now housed over the first and second floors with high end lighting, bespoke reception desk and display shelving units, back wash space with rear storage units, 10 hair stations and a beauty room. There are some additional design features including a glass wall panel on the first floor.
- Lower ground floor – currently being used for storage, staffroom and office only, however, offers further potential for additional beauty treatment rooms.
- A stunning and luxury refit of this unused space with significant eye to design detail. It includes a ‘high spec’ fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, large bathroom and standalone bath with separate curved shower cubicle, new fitted cupboards in the sitting room and 2 x original cast iron fires.
We highly recommend any investor or those looking for a new ‘Turn-key’ freehold business to make an early enquiry to avoid disappointment.
This property enjoys a highly prominent corner trading position in Northumberland.
The unit sits along a parade of both independent retailers, high street banks, choice of restaurants and bars.
