Assignment of existing 12 year lease commencing 6th November 2009. Current passing rent £9,500 pa.
Elevated retail premises, with dual stepped access, leading to character open plan retail space with featured beams, excellent natural lighting and well presented accommodation.
St Ives is one of the most characterful and busiest resorts in the south west. The quaint harbour town is extremely popular during the summer season but also benefits from tourist trade throughout the year due largely to the Tate Gallery and its links with the artist community. The town is highly sought after by National, Regional and Local retailers and there are numerous respected restaurants, bistros and cafes.
The property is situated in The Island, a small square in the Downalong area, comprising the old fishing cottages now converted predominantly for holiday cottages and second homes. The area has established itself as a specialist artist area with numerous galleries and studios benefitting from its close proximity to the Tate Gallery. Further, the property is readily accessible to the town centre along with the popular beaches of both Porthmeor and Porthgwidden.
The property is accessed by a dual staircase with small external patio leading to kiosk style character gallery/retail space presented in immaculate condition. The space benefits from exposed timber trusses, nicely presented laminate wood floor finish and significant natural light provided by both retail windows and Velux roof lights. The surrounding area is predominantly residential, a mix of private dwellings, second homes and holiday cottages, but with numerous artist studios and galleries along with café and restaurants – The Olive’s Café is situated adjoining the property.
