LOCATION & DESCRIPTION Eastleigh is a former railway town about 5 miles to the north of Southampton, with excellent road, rail and air links to the rest of England & the continent. As a result it has built an enviable reputation as a distribution and manufacturing centre. The retail centre of Market Street and the more secondary High Street is supplemented by The Swan Shopping Centre where visitors to its Vue based leisure extension are up to nearly 3m a year. The property itself comprises a two storey retail unit with a well established Charity trading from the ground floor. They have been in the premises since 2014 and utilise all of the rear storage area for the sorting, cleaning and storage of charity donations. The first floor is a self-contained 1-2 bed flat, let until recently on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy to the same tenant for 9 years, but it will be vacant from the beginning of April. ACCOMMODATION Ground floor retail unit - Net Sales 607 sq ft Rear Ancillary 672 sq ft WC. Rear Access, one parking space Total Ground Floor Net Area 1279 sq ft First floor flat comprising Living Room, Kitchen, Double Bedroom & Bathroom with additional second floor Living Room/Bedroom. This would benefit from some modernisation. TENANTS The ground floor is let to Life 2009, a registered charity https://lifecharity.org.uk/ established in 1970, and in 2016 they had a total income of £3.6m. They have a 10 year lease from November 2014 with a 5 year upward only rent review and the tenant break at the end of the third year was not used. The current rent is £16000 pa exclusive, representing an ITZA rent of just under £31.00 psf. Recent lettings and lease renewals in Market Street have tended to be in the region of £40 psf ITZA so it is our contention that the rent is reversionary and could see an uplift on review. Total current income therefore is £22600 pa. However, even at £35 psf ITZA the ground floor rent equates to £17750 pa, plus the flat income once a tenant is found.

The main building is a two storey purpose-built Police Station of traditional load-bearing brick with a tiled pitched roof. To the rear of the site are a pair of semi-detached houses and to the western corner a detached house.
There are also various single storey buildings and portacabins to the rear of the site. There is car parking provision on site, which is accessed from Toynbee Road and there is an additional access to the west of the site, not currently in use, off Romsey Close.
Internally the main building is configured to provide office space and cells for the former Police Station and will therefore require comprehensive refurbishment to convert it to an alternative use.
The whole site extends to approximately 0.68ha (1.67acres). ( Agency Pilot Software Ref: 2036603 )
