2 Clarence Buildings, Avenue Road, Freshwater, Isle Of Wight, PO40 9UU
Sold £102,500

This three storey freehold town centre building situated in the heart of Freshwater has the advantage of a potential vehicular access via Tennyson Road.

The building at present is arranged as a small lock-up shop unit to the front which requires upgrading and refurbishment. To the rear on the ground floor is a small residential flat, while on the first floor there is a larger residential flat which has been sold off under the terms of a long leasehold arrangement. On the second floor there is a vacant two-bedroom flat which is considered ideal for an income producing letting portfolio.

The garden to the rear which opens onto Tennyson Road may offer scope and potential for off-road parking, garaging, or perhaps even a small residential dwelling, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
