Freehold Victorian four storey corner building (with basement) located in the heart of Barrow Town Centre with a Net Internal Floor area of approx. 2,731 sq ft (excluding the basement).

Renewed lease to the undoubted covenant of Pearson Professional Assessments Ltd for the ground floor only at £8,200 PA NET Rent until September 2030.

While the 1st and 2nd floors could be let as offices providing the building with an over ERV of £26,000 NET PA, there is a lapsed planning consent to convert the 1st and 2nd floors into two 3-bed apartments.

In light of the major expansion plans of BAE Systems (located within a 20 minute walk of BAE Systems PLC, Bridge Rd) the residential income once works have been completed would likely generate a minimum of approx. £12,000 PA per flat, giving an overall rental income of £32,000 PA.

There is an additional small ground floor office that has the potential to be converted to a studio apartment (stp) and the Vendor understands that the basement area covers the plot of land for sale. 

Potential purchasers should make their own enquiries.

One car-parking space at the rear of the property is included.

The ground floor entrance comprises of an entrance hall, with stunning original tiling, a small room on the left which is currently used for storage and on the right is a separate shop, which currently has a long term tenant (ask agent for details) and is included in the sale of the property, they have their own entrance to the front of Duke Street. There is also a large basement space, which could also be adapted.

Heading up the large staircase, you are greeted with a large single office, the conference room and then another large office over looking Duke St. These are all large rooms, with lots of head room, which you would expect in a Victorian property. They also have the original fire places and cornice which add to the character of the building.

Up another flight of stairs and there is the main office space, which contains it own kitchen and excellent natural lighting, with views out over the town centre. There is also a smaller office off to the side and a bathroom. There is also access to the loft space.

The property is located within walking distance of the town centre, shops, transport links and BAE Systems. It would certainly make excellent accommodation, with plenty of space to maximise room space. The property could also easily be used as office space in its current layout.
