The property occupies a prominent position in the heart of a very attractive village in East Sussex, with free roadside parking directly outside. The spacious shop is modern in appearance and very well equipped for the trade having been fully refurbished in 2012, and there are also ample storage facilities.
Together with the post office services, the shop sells an extensive range of items including newspapers & magazines, alcoholic & soft drinks, tobacco, sweets, snacks, greetings cards, gift wrap, fruit & vegetables, bakery products and a selection of household & convenience goods. There are also full national lottery facilities.
Annual retail sales are approximately £280,000 (excluding vat), and the post office salary is in the region of £13,000 (including lottery commission). Already a thriving business, there is still room for improvement and new owners may see scope for more freshly prepared snacks and “food-to-go” items. There is also potential to increase takings by extending the current opening hours; the shop currently closes at 5.30pm on weekdays and earlier at the weekend.
The self-contained living accommodation is of a high standard and includes 3 bedrooms, lounge, modern bathroom with corner shower unit and a well-designed kitchen with built in cupboards and appliances. The property also has a large and secluded rear garden together with a private garage.
Altogether, this is an outstanding lifestyle opportunity, perhaps for a couple or a family who could achieve a very good income from the shop whilst enjoying the benefits of living in a highly desirable village location.
