A fantastic retail investment, business, or home with income opportunity in the heart of the most desirable coastal town of Torquay, Devon. This property has until recently been trading as a Chinese take-away and benefits from high passing footfall/ traffic and has convenient free short-term parking opposite. The premises benefit from a good-sized ground floor retailing area with stores / office, cloak room, fully equipped kitchen, workshop on the lower ground floor and a self-contained 2-bedroom apartment with garden and garage (small). Ideally located only minutes’ walk to the town centre, beach and harbour. Early viewings are highly recommended.

LOCATION
The premises are ideally located on Union Street which is an excellent secondary location within all year-round busy Torquay, Devon. Immediately outside the shop is free short-term parking and the pavements on both sides benefit from a high foot fall. It is centrally located on the level with beautiful flat sandy beaches nearby. The property is within a short driving distance of Brixham and Paignton or it’s easy to catch public transport if you don’t want to drive.

BUSINESS
The premises until recently have been trading as a Chinese restaurant / take-away. This will be sold with vacant possession but should anybody wish to operate as restaurant / take-away, a separate discussion to hand over the fixtures and fittings would be welcome.
