Situated in the heart of Horley the property has a prominent frontage to the popular Victoria Road. The property is close to the pedestrianised High Street and convenient for the central Shoppers car park. Horley mainline railway station is a few minutes’ walk away.
The property is opposite Iceland frozen foods, with a new branch of Specsavers Opticians a few doors away. Also close by are Waitrose and Lidl supermarkets, Costa Coffee and Collingwood Batchelor department store.
The premises comprise a two storey building. The ground floor was most recently occupied as a branch of HSBC Bank. Internally it retains some of the bank fittings but offers enormous scope for conversion to alternative uses, STPP. The ground floor is currently let at a rent of £32,000 pa but the tenants have exercised a break option effective from 15 May 2018. It is considered that scope exists to increase the rent upon reletting.

There is a service road behind the property, accessed via Massetts Road. This leads to a surfaced car parking area at the rear of the building, which is of sufficient size to accommodate approximately 8 cars. 2 spaces are demised with the lease of the 1st floor offices.
