The business enjoys the benefit of being a member of the Nisa buying group, as well as having an alcohol licence and a good staff team working alongside the owner.
Given the size and layout of the property together with the large store to the rear there are potentially options to further develop or change the internal layouts to provide extra units for letting either on a commercial or residential basis. This would have course be subject to any consents that may be needed however it may well be of interest to prospective buyers who may be looking at ways to increase the income or capital values that are achievable for the site.
