INTRODUCTION ***FOR SALE*** OR ***RENT THEN BUY*** A LARGE RETAIL PREMISES*** DARWEN TOWN CENTRE*** PROMINENT BUSY MAIN ROAD LOCATION***
Ainsworth Lord Estates Commercial Dept. is delighted to be offering for sale (or rent, then buy) this deceptively large retail property in a prominent location in Darwen Town Centre.
Previously a gentlemen's outfitters known as 'Sagar's Menswear' this property is now ready for new owners to improve and develop the site to maximise it's full potential.
Deceptively larger than you think, this property is spread over 3 floors, with a large basement, large retail area, and former living accommodation on the first floor.
In short... it's a glorious opportunity for someone with the correct vision and mindset. It that sounds like you then we strongly recommend you book your viewing before someone else snaps it up!
BASEMENT The basement of this property can be accessed by stairs from the ground floor retail area, or by it's own entrance on Foundry St. at the back of the building.
The basement is made up of several rooms and would lend itself to a variety of uses including a retail outlet of it's own.
GROUND FLOOR - RETAIL AREA The most prominent feature of this property is the spacious double-fronted retail space. It's long standing prominence on the main road is known by everyone locally and it's unique location means the next operator from this premises will have exposure better than page 1 of google! The correct type of business owner should do very well from here.
This floor is made up of:
Two Large Shop Floor Areas
Former Changing Room
Back Office Room
Kitchen & WC
FIRST FLOOR (FORMER LIVING ACCOMMODATION) The first floor of this property has what would have been living accommodation at one time.
Easily accessed from the ground floor, and comprised of several rooms including:
ADDITIONAL PROPERTY INFORMATION Please be aware this property is in need of a full refurbishment and will split into several units, either for use by the new owners or to let out to produce an income.
There is a large Public Car Park to the rear of this property with ample parking and availability.
The rateable vale on this building is currently £6500 and we believe that the new owners will be able to qualify for 100% Small Business Relief, although we recommend that this is confirmed with the local council.
RENT THEN BUY EXPLAINED: Whilst we are offering this property for sale, our client is willing to lease the property to the prospective owners with a future purchase price pre-agreed. The timescales can be agreed along with the rent of the terms.
Any such agreement can be very flexible to suit both parties.
The main benefit of such an arrangement would mean the prospective owners can do the refurbishment and arrange finance based on the new future value of the property post works. We believe this to be an excellent opportunity that doesn't come along very often.
Ainsworth Lord Estates can assist with financing arrangements via our Power Finance Team of Brokers.
