Situated close to the centre of Shanklin, the ground floor of this imposing building was last in use as a bookmakers office with additional storage behind and below. Set into a hill, the basement level from the front elevation becomes the ground floor to the rear where a service road gives access to the building.

Planning Consent has been obtained for a rear extension to provide two, one-bedroom residential units, with the existing retail/office space retained for further commercial use. Two flats on the upper floors have been sold under the terms of long leases.

A copy of the Planning Consent and proposed plans will be available to download from the Local Planning Authority website, the Clive Emson website, or for inspection at the Auctioneer's Office.
