The premises are situated on approximately one mile east of Harrogate town centre on Knaresborough Road, one of the most popular suburban retail parades in Harrogate. The parade is surrounded by a densely populated, residential area and the main arterial road to Knaresborough and the A1. Occupiers include Halfords, Coral Bookmakers, Drakes Fish and Chip Shop and One Stop amongst others.
The property forms a two-storey end terrace with a single storey extension to the rear. The property provides a retail sales area to the front and a warehouse area to the rear with a loading door.
The first floor provides ancillary storage/staff facilities. Externally the property benefits from a front forecourt area for customer parking.
Asset Management Opportunities
In our opinion the property could be split up to provide two units and a self-contained warehouse to the rear, each with their own separate entrances.
In addition the first floor could be converted to provide a self-contained flat. Further parking/display windows could be provided by removing the oversized side hedge to the roadside fronting Jesmond Road.
We understand the property benefits from an established Use A1 shop business use. In our opinion the property could suit other uses within the new Use Class E banding such as Café or Health and Beauty users.
The property is available for sale on a freehold basis with vacant possession upon completion.
We understand that the property has not been elected for VAT and so VAT will not be applicable on the price.
