Specialist retail property adviser Christie + Co is pleased to announce a price reduction for Corner Stores in Puriton, Somerset.
The freehold interest of the popular village shop, which has been run by Mr and Mrs Balderston for the past 20 years, has been reduced to £379,995.
The Corner Stores is a well supported village shop, within a thriving local community. It benefits from being close to the M5 and has good local transport links to nearby towns, beaches and secondary schools. In the village there is a Sports Centre, preschool, primary school with a ‘Good’ Ofsted report, a village hall, butchers, hairdressers, together with plans for new housing going through at the moment.
Situated on a corner plot in the centre of the village, the shop offers a good selection of groceries, confectionery, alcohol, chilled and frozen products, magazines along with services that include, Paypoint and National Lottery.
Having first opened as a bakery in the 1900’s, the 400 year old unlisted building has been developed and expanded into its current format.
Dave Morris, Negotiator at Christie + Co’s Bristol office comments: “There is huge scope to extend the shop further - subject to planning permission, and we have also been advised by the Post Office Ltd that they are seeking to re-locate the village post office and have indicated that the shop would suit. This could create an additional income stream for an incoming purchaser.”
The property benefits from a well-presented owners’ accommodation that has a wealth of character features, with a large mature garden to the rear (approximately 0.25 acres) and an out-building that could be converted into an annex or home office.
Sue Balderston remarks: ""In our opinion the shop would benefit from new ownership and has the scope to alter and improve an already established solid business.”
