THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The business was set up by the vendor some 9 years ago and has been successfully trading since. Being exclusive stockists in the region for brands such as Ralph Lauren Home and Purdey means the vendor is able to set themselves apart from other similar businesses which very much gives customers a reason to come into the shop. There are many high end and exclusive brands stocked from local, national and international designers with the main lines being home accessories, jewellery, art and furniture.
The vendor, in addition but separate to this business, provides an interior design service and we believe there could be a mutually beneficial relationship built here with a new owner. The vendor is also willing to agree a level of stock to provided on completion to assist with the buyer’s budget. With a strong consistent financial performance but with scope to increase with a new owners ideas, this is the ideal position and time at which to acquire such a business.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The business is set in a delightful location in one of the numerous ‘Yards’ that Holt is known for, this one being ideally positioned between the main high street and the supermarket with its large public car park with many people using the footpath connecting the two which leads past the front of this shop.
The shop frontage is very attractive and of a traditional style for the area with high ceilingsand fully glazed shop front either side of the glazed entrance door bringing much natural light into the building. The vendor has extensively refurbished the interior of the property during the period that they have been there. From works such as rewiring, new plumbingand shop fitted with a range of bespoke built-in displays, shelving and cupboards. The contemporary renovations give a real light and spacious feel to the whole space, somewhere as equally pleasing to work as to be a customer browsing. The excellent presentation includes engineered oak flooring to the ground floor and good quality sisal to the upper levels. In addition, the property benefits from CCTV, alarm, built in speakers throughout and quality light fittings (although please note that some light fittings are stock items and not fitted fixtures, thus will be available by separate negotiation).
The ground floor extends to approx 37.5sqm with an open staircase continuing the sense of light and space leading up to the first floor. The lower first floor of 30sqm has steps up to the upper level which provides a further approx 20sqm of retail space. To the rear of the upper floor is a further room which provides storage, a kitchenette and space for a desk to work at. This room is in the region of 10.5 sqm. There is also a staff WC on this floor. All in all the total floor space will amount to approx. 98sqm/1055sqft.
This is a property where you really can walk in from day one and not need to change a thing!
