Property Details

The sale of Lendor represents an unique opportunity to purchase a substantial and highly versatile traditional Lakeland property, which has a combination of residential and commercial usage. The property is spread over three floors consisting of a spacious two bedroom flat on the middle floor, yet accessed from ground level. Whilst above is a large space providing three rooms which has previously been rented as separate living accommodation, and is now in need of complete renovation. In addition, on the ground floor at street level from North road is a flexible commercial element which has been used for multiple purposes over the years including a hair salon, art gallery, lingerie shop and office space.

Although the property does require significant modernisation and upgrading, it represents great potential and is suitable for a variety of buyers as there are numerous permutations. Whether to create one large residence for holiday letting or to create two dwellings, or possible annexe. All subject to relevant planning permissions. Whilst there is also the commercial element which could be rented out to generate a income. Previously it has earned approximately £5,000 per annum in rent.

The current accommodation had benefited from UPVC double glazing and new wet room in recent years.

A delightful position conveniently located close to the centre of this most popular Lakeland town, with a wide variety of amenities close at hand including shops restaurants, banks, doctors, and cinema etc.
