High Street, Whitstable
A unique opportunity to acquire a freehold commercial premises offered for sale with vacant possession for the first time since 1863. This substantial period building is situated in a prime central position directly opposite Sainsbury's local and next door to Boots Chemist, and enjoys a prominent trading position with high footfall. Whitstable's bustling High Street includes a variety of independent retailers and is on a bus route to the Cathedral City of Canterbury.
Formally home to W J Cox Print Works and Stationers, the building has been sympathetically renovated to provide a modern space whilst retaining a wealth of period character. The building is set over three floors with the ground floor arranged to provide a generous retail space, currently utilised as a contemporary fine art gallery. The first and second floors comprise three further rooms, an area of office space and a cloakroom. The property is being sold with A1 consent and it is thought that there may be potential for extension and to convert the upper floors to residential use (subject to obtaining all necessary consents and approvals).
The property also benefits from a private courtyard which extends to 49ft (15m) at maximum.
