Call to View
EM&F are pleased to be able to market this interesting opportunity which could provide a number of possibilities for a new owner. Only coming onto the market after 38 years due to the owners pending retirement there is much scope and as such we would recommend viewing to fully appreciate the extent of what is being offered for sale.
Whilst likely to appeal to an owner operator we feel that it would also have potential for an investor or developer and we suggest that such persons take a closer look.
Situated in a dense residential area in the popular north Suffolk market town of Beccles the location is an ideal area to locate to with a busy local business economy and plenty of amenities for the thriving population.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The owners have operated the fish and chip business for many years however due to their age and health they have in more recent times reduced down their hours of operation and now only open 18 hours a week over 6 days. Currently there is no lunchtime offering and one would expect a longer evening service and as such there appears to be much scope to significantly increase the current turnover which is in the region of £1000.00 per week.
The sale also includes the freehold of the neighbouring business which is currently let on a yearly basis having been renewed in September at a current rent of £320 p.m.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The large freehold property comprises the two commercial premises to the ground floor and the residential apartment on the first floor which spans across both units. To the front is an approximately 9m deep forecourt area which abuts the public footpath and parking bays. To the side is the driveway which provides owners parking and secure gates through to the private garden where further parking can be found. The good size garden may also provide scope for a potential building plot subject to planning and any other consents that may be required. In addition we have been advised that there is a lapsed consent for a double garage to be erected in the garden however any interested party will need to make their own enquiries in this regard.
Moving into the fish and chip shop the main customer and service area measures approximately 6.5m x 4.3m behind a full height glazed frontage. The customer area has ample space in front of the 3 pan range which we understand has been recently fully refurbished at considerable expense. The shop has tiled walls and floor, suspended ceiling with inset lighting, service counter and drinks fridge.
To the rear is the prep room of 5.3m x 4.3m with wash down floor, work surfaces with cupboards under, sink and peeler, chipper, chest freezer and fridge. There is also a staff W.C and cloakroom with double doors leading to the rear garden.
We understand that the neighbouring let unit is approximately the same size as the main customer and service area to the fish and chip shop.
The upstairs residential apartment is of a very good size and provides 3 double bedrooms and shower room. A particular feature is the large kitchen/diner which benefits from a nice outlook with stylish fitted units and worktop, inset spotlighting and fitted appliances including American style fridge, 5 ring gas range and built in dishwasher. The lounge has the added plus of providing access onto the front balcony offering further outside space. The apartment has double glazed windows throughout and gas central heating served by a new boiler fitted approximately 1 year ago. Access is via the front door leading out onto a communal staircase shared with the neighbouring property or via the rear door from the kitchen leading down a private external staircase into the garden.
All in all the property provides a great opportunity for a new owner to make their own mark on the place and we look forward to receiving your call to arrange a viewing of it.
Strictly by appointment only, please call our Norwich Office on (01603) 662 662 to make an appointment.
