Lincoln is one of England’s finest Cathedral Cities and the administrative and major shopping centre within for the County of Lincolnshire. It has an urban area population of 130,200 (2011 Census) and an estimated total catchment spend of circa £1 billion. The city attracts circa 4 million tourists annually.

Lincoln is also a growing University City with circa 15,000 students and academic staff based at the City’s main campus, contributing an estimated £250 million to the local economy.

Rose House comprises a recently completed development of four retail units and 11 apartments over ground, first, second and third floors with car park (9 spaces), cycle and bin storage to the rear. The property was built as a condition of the planning permission for the recently completed East West Link Road and replaces similar properties with heritage status that had to be removed in order to enable the new road to be built.

The apartments within the building have been utilised until recently by the Freeholder, University of Lincoln, as temporary accommodation for new staff members and as such, all apartments are in excellent condition.

Rose House is named after Rose Musical Warehouse which was founded by William Rose on the site in the 1860s. William’s youngest son, Edwin Samuel, inherited the business which stayed in the family for five generations until Jane Kinnear (nee Rose) and John Rose agreed to sell it to Lincolnshire County Council in order to allow the East West Link Road to go ahead.

The property is for sale freehold subject to the existing tenancies.

Offers are invited for consideration.
