Positioned in a densely populated area close to the Bournemouth University Campus, the store benefits from a high footfall which is set to increase further due to the recently approved AFC Bournemouth training facility at nearby Canford Magna golf course and the approved development of 300 new homes.
Situated on a large plot with an attractive enclosed rear garden, wide road frontage and parking for approximately 12 vehicles, the store offers c.672 sq ft of well laid out retail space. Comprising a modern range of display and refrigeration units, the store offers a wide selection of convenience goods, confectionery, stationery, an off licence, Post Office counter, office and storage area.
Furthermore, the property benefits from an excellent three bedroom owner’s accommodation incorporating a newly fitted shower room, large sitting room, kitchen/dining room, conservatory and ground floor toilet.
Tom Glanvill, Business Agent – Retail at Christie & Co’s Winchester office is handling the sale and comments; “As a successful key community asset and with its prominent A-road position, this business provides an excellent opportunity for either owner operators or commercial operators, who will value the huge potential of the freehold site, which offers significant scope to extend.
“The retail area could be enlarged considerably to incorporate parts of the adjoining house or by extending the existing footprint, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, while the detached garage could be used for storage, if required.”
A guide price of £650,000 is being sought for the freehold interest.
