130 Union Street, Torquay, Devon, TQ2 5QB
Sold £267,500

Currently part let at £22,500 per annum

An interesting investment and redevelopment opportunity comprising a prominent four storey building located at the top end of Union Street just below Castle Circus. The ground and lower ground floors are occupied by Haart Estate Agents at a current rent of £22,500 per annum with fixed annual increases, the vacant upper floors having in the past been a duplex two bedroom flat but now needing complete refurbishment.

The property is likely to appeal to a number of sectors of the market including those who might see the potential, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable, for upwards extension as the property is diminutive in relation to both its immediate neighbours.

Let on a 10 year lease, from 11th December 2018, at a current rental of £22,500 per annum.
