Situated close to the centre of Sandown on the east coast of the Isle of Wight this substantial corner property is situated a short walk from the town centre, seafront and sandy beach beyond. The property has lain empty for a considerable number of years and is sadly in a dilapidated condition, having also suffered some fire damage. When last in use the property comprised four shop units, two fronting Fitzroy Street and two fronting Station Avenue, and a small commercial (taxi) office. Beyond, the commercial units on the ground floor and then continued on the first and second floors was living accommodation including a number of self-contained flats.
It is considered that the building is now ideally suited to a solely residential use and conversion into a number of apartments, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
Alternatively, prospective purchasers may wish to consider re-development of the whole site with a new residential scheme, again subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
