This detached property falls within the popular suburb of Low Fell which lies approximately 2 miles due south of Gateshead town centre. This is an area of predominantly private housing with good schools, amenities and infrastructure.
The property is laid out to provide a retail area plus a WC and 2 stores to the ground floor.
Until 2018 the shop was a busy off licence and convenience store and it is highly likely that it will return to this use as there is no immediate competition for this highly populated catchment area.
The last 2 years the shop was converted into a lighting retail shop but this could be stripped out to leave an empty unit to be repurposed for any potential business. The Off Licence counter area is substantial and can be negotiated as part of the fixtures.
Subject to planning permission - the ground floor could possibly be redeveloped into another flat unit as the detached building is sandwiched between other residential properties.
Externally there is a yard with a workshop plus a separate garage in the rear lane to provide additional storage space.
Comprises a detached three storey property of traditional brick construction with a pitched slate roof over.
