Oldfield Smith & Co. have sold the former Laura Ashley premises located at 61 Calverley Road, Tunbridge Wells.
The premises comprise a good size retail unit to the ground floor having a usable basement area with ornate, bespoke spiral staircase providing access to the first floor. There is a door at the rear for loading. There is a further floor above this previously used for storage and accommodating production rooms, kitchen and cloakrooms. The property benefits from a separate access to the upper floors from Calverley Road making it ideal to separate this part from the shop and either let out separately, sell or consider a residential conversion. The premises have a total usable area between the floors of 452.4 sq m (4866 sq ft).
Although initially offered for rent, an offer was received for the freehold interest which, after further negotiation, was agreed and the property has now been sold.
The unit was offered for rent at a figure of £69,000pa under the terms of a normal fully repairing and insuring lease.
There continues to be a good demand for retail premises both to let and for sale all over the South East, particularly those with potential for conversion of either the whole or upper parts. If you have space available and are considering a letting or sale please do get in touch with the agents that get results. Call us on 01825 762222
