The large ground floor retail space enjoys a prime high street location on King Street, Whitehaven’s pedestrianised main shopping thoroughfare. The vacant site can be easily adapted to suit any business or sector, making it an ideal investment opportunity.

Lucy Katsantonis, Managing Director of the Venus Group of Companies, the previous owners said, “I was extremely impressed with the level of service we received from Christie and Co. We were kept well informed at all times and I would most definitely recommend them to any business wanting to buy or sell a property. I look forward to working with them again in the future.”

The site has been purchased by the local authority in partnership with Superdrug as a blue-chip tenant, in addition to acquiring the site next door, as part of their plans to commence a large-scale redevelopment of the town centre.

Ashley Cobban, Retail Business Agent at Christie & Co handled the sale comments, “I am really excited to see what is to come of King Street and Whitehaven town centre with the local authority acquiring as many sites as possible for large scale redevelopment.”

The King Street investment unit was sold off a guide price of £160,000 for the freehold interest.
