Property Summary

Newport is the County Town of the Isle of Wight and offers a wide variety of shops and facilities that attract people all year around, not only tourists, but Island residents as well.  The lower High Street is one of the main exit points from the town centre and close to County Hall, the Police Station and Boots we have a delightful shop that is being offered for sale with 2/3 bedroom living accommodation.

No. 142 has traded as a sweet shop for decades, but due to a change in the owners circumstances has now closed its’ doors.  However, its’ attractive exterior and location make it an exciting opportunity for someone to either re-open or establish a new business in these quaint premises.

The shop itself could have its’ display area greatly increased by incorporating the ground floor office space in to it, subject to building regulations etc making this building suitable for a variety of uses, subject to planning.

The building is currently arranged to provide on the ground floor a shop, office, modern bathroom/wc, an oak fitted kitchen, covered porch/yard area, courtyard and a shed, whilst on the first and second floors there are 3 bedrooms, 1 of which has an en-suite WC with the possibility to provide a shower.

The windows to the main property, with the exception of the main shop front, have been replaced with double glazed units and the building benefits from a fire alarm and a gas fired central heating system.

The property is offered for sale with vacant possession and with the proximity of County Hall and other office buildings within the immediate proximity, the right business could really thrive and benefit from the position that this premises has to offer.
