Property Description

The property is situated just off the central retail New Market with road connections from Station Road and Smallgate via Exchange Square. This is a predominantly shopping Thoroughfare with busy road frontage leading through to the Quay and the Station.

Beccles has a population of around 10,000 and is expanding with projected 1,500 new houses to be built under the Local Plan proposals. Beccles is an important Market Town in the Waveney River Valley. The river has a direct connection with the Broads Waterway system and is tidal at Beccles. Beccles has an excellent range of independent shops with high occupancy rate and is probably one of the most attractive towns in North Suffolk. As one might expect there are schools for all age groups, dentists, veterinary and medical practices.

Norwich 18 miles with mainline rail link to London Liverpool Street. Ipswich 40 miles with its rail connection to Beccles via the Lowestoft line.

The property comprises The Fish Monger at Number 4 operating for 6 years with a frontage onto Smallgate and rear pedestrian access. The proposal is that the buyer will acquire the freehold as a part let investment and part with vacant possession (see possession later)

See Brochure

Metered electricity, metered water supply (shared with number 2) and foul drainage (shared with number 2). No gas. (Durrants have not tested any apparatus, equipment, fittings or services and so cannot verify they are in working order)

The owners have not elected to charge VAT on the property and therefore this will not be added to the purchase price.
