10-11 High Street, Cowes, Isle of Wight, PO31 7RZ

Situated in the heart of Cowes, the internationally renowned yachting centre, this freehold mixed investment comprises retail space on the ground floor and a pair of two-bedroom flats on the first and second floors above. The flats enjoy a separate access from the rear of the building.

The ground floor retail space has previously traded as two separate shop units but is, at present, arranged as a single interconnecting unit and was last in use by a mobile telephone retailer. The building is in need of upgrading and refurbishment, beyond which it is considered ideal for addition to an income-producing investment portfolio. Alternatively, the flats could potentially be sold on a long leasehold basis, once refurbished, with the ground floor retail income retained.
