The property, the former Police Station represents a composite investment and development project in the heart of Newquay Town Centre comprising of a fronting fully let commercial property and a detached block of 4 apartments to the rear, with outline planning permission for demolition and the construction of 6 new build apartments with parking for onward sale, or as a residential addition to the commercial rental element.
The opportunity offers the investor or developer an opportunity to acquire an ongoing investment, providing an income, with further potential in respect of the rear development site, having outline planning permission for 6 apartments on three floors, all with designated parking. The existing four apartments are contained within an old building and are largely dilapidated (although 2 of them are currently let on ASTs) but, as an alternative, they could simply be refurbished for onward let to increase the investment element without new build development.
The sale includes the forecourt, the front parking, the commercially let front building, access down the partly owned side driveway, the rear dilapidated building (4 x flats, 2 let), the rear car parking area and a row of three garages.
Situated in the centre of Newquay, 35-37 East St is next to the main Post Office in Newquay, diagonally opposite Tesco Express. From our office, proceed up Cliff Road towards the town and the property can be found on your right hand side immediately past the Hotel Victoria.
