Traditional Post Office business with ancillary retail sales. Very well presented 3 bed owners accommodation included. Scope to develop existing business operation. Located in the popular Northumberland town of Amble. Run under same ownership for 26 years. Perfectly suited for owner operator.
The subjects occupy a two and a half storey mid-terraced property with the business occupying the ground floor and the residential accommodation formed over both the ground floor and the floors above.
Our clients have successfully owned and operated this business since 1992 and have reluctantly placed the business on the market to allow them to downsize. Trading as a traditional Post Office business, the Harbour Post Office is a real focal point of this part of town and very well known throughout the local area. As well as being a good business opportunity, the 3 bedroomed living accommodation is also included in the sale.
Turnover is derived from income from the Post Office along with some ancillary sales from the likes of greeting cards, stationery, soft drinks and confectionery. There is undoubtedly scope to develop the retail side of the business with the addition of further lines in the adequate space available and there would also be potential for a new buyer to also look at alternative use by way of a small café/tea room.
The business is currently operated by the owner with the assistance of two part-time staff members.
Mon-Thurs 9.00am - 12.00pm/1.00pm - 5.30pm
Fri & Sat 9.00am – 12.30pm
Number of employees:
Run by the owner with the assistance of 2 part-time members of staff.
Is accommodation included?:
The owners accommodation is entered through the shop which leads into a hallway with accommodation as follows:-
Beautifully presented kitchen area with Aga stove, fitted white wall, base & drawer units with access to an enclosed rear yard and space for a centrally positioned dining table.
Stairs leading to bathroom with bath, shower, sink & w/c, 2 double bedrooms (one of which features fitting wardrobes) and sizeable sitting room with dining room just off.
This has been converted into a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobes and dedicated bathroom facilities.
Attractive views of the sea and beyond can be seen from the dormer window.
The owners accommodation is very well presented throughout whilst the property also benefits from having a private garage to the rear, one of very few properties on Percy Street to do so.
It should be noted the property also benefits from a new gas combi-boiler, installed in 2017.
The Harbour Post Office is situated towards the eastern end of Percy Street, which is a predominantly residential area in the popular coastal town of Amble. Ideally located within walking distance to Amble Harbour Village and Amble Marina, Percy Street forms part of a main route through the town with Percy Drive and Links Road.
