The Wensum Mount Business Centre has evolved over the last 14-15 years following the conversion of a range of traditional agricultural barns on a site of 0.61 ha (1.51 acres), to create a thriving business community.
The centre currently enjoys 100% occupancy.
The Wensum Mount Business Centre is situated on Low Road, which runs parallel with Drayton High Road, close to Hellesdon Hospital, and is approximately 4 miles north west of Norwich city centre.
The units are let on business tenancies to a range of occupiers, typically on 5 year leases, in some cases incorporating an earlier tenant break.
Approximately half of the leases are protected with the remainder contracted out of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954.
The tenants are specifically responsible for internal repairs and decoration, and contribute to external repairs via a service charge.
The current rental income is £88,473 per annum exclusive.
The service charge is levied to cover costs incurred by the landlord for maintaining the landscaped areas of the estate, the common parts of each building and other common part expenditure.
The premises form part of a larger agricultural holding which is being marketed for sale through Brown & Co, which includes a pair of basic agricultural storage buildings extending to 917 sq m (9,190 sq ft), together with irrigated arable land and grazing meadows fronting the River Wensum extending to approximately 69 hectares (170 acres) in total.
The Wensum Mount Business Centre is to be sold freehold, subject to and with the benefit of the various leases, either as a single lot, or in conjunction with the agricultural land and buildings.
The area shaded purple on the plan will be sold subject to a 25 year overage agreement whereby 30% of any uplift in value attributable to a planning permission for non-agricultural use, to include development granted prior approval under the General Permitted Development Order, will be payable to the Vendor on the sooner of the implementation of the planning permission or the sale of the property with planning permission. The reasonable costs of securing planning permission would be deductible as allowable expenses in calculating the uplift.
Wensum Mount Business Centre is offered for sale as an investment at a price of £1,100,000. A sale at this level will reflect a Net Initial Yield of 7.6% after allowing for purchaser's costs at 5.75%.
