Lot 74


162 Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth, BH8 8AS
162 Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth, BH8 8AS
Sold £236,000

Currently let at £14,000 per annum

This imposing three storey building is situated in a busy retail parade about 250 yards from Bournemouth mainline railway station and diagonally opposite Lidl and Halfords. It is also close to Bournemouth University’s Landsdowne Campus.

The property comprises a shop at ground floor level (front) and a large residential maisonette at the rear of the ground floor, together with the first and second floors, with a garden and separate access from the rear.

The property is currently let on a commercial lease but there is potential for the residential accommodation to be extended, refurbished and/or sub-divided on a floor by floor basis on the expiry of the existing lease, or earlier by negotiation with the tenant, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable. Many of the properties on Holdenhurst Road have been extended to the rear or within loft spaces to facilitate additional residential accommodation.

Alternatively, the property represents an attractive investment with potential for a significant increase in rent on review in July 2023, as the current rent of £14,000 per annum is only slightly higher than the rent that the tenant receives from the sub-tenant of the residential maisonette.
