A Pair Of Mid Terraced Retail Units Within A Busy Town Centre Trading Position With Uppers Suitable For Future Conversion To Residential Uses Subject To Planning Permission Current Rental Income £16,500 PA

Property Description

The property comprises a pair of ground floor mid terraced retail units with two upper floors which have been unused for many years but are considered to offer the potential for future residential conversion subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission. The freehold includes the rear yard with vehicle access across neighbouring land. 21 Lower Brook Street is occupied by Wrights a bakery and cake shop and 21a by Max Spielmann a photographic shop. Both are well presented having modern trading areas, ancillaries and WC's. The upper floors which have not been used for many years require renovation and the installation of stairway access and comprise five void areas on the first floor and further potential accommodation on the second floor. We have not undertaken an inspection of the void areas.


The property occupies a prominent position fronting the pedestrianised Lower Brook Street in the main retail core of Rugeley town centre.
There is an excellent mix of local traders, with national operators including Greggs, BetFred, Nationwide, Coral, Lloyds Bank, Costa and Specsavers.
