The property, which has a large retail frontage, is located in a prominent position on Westgate Street, one of Ipswich’s busiest retail thoroughfares. Westgate Street is contiguous with Cornhill and Tavern Street and benefits from a high pedestrian footfall all-year-round.
Nearby occupiers include Marks & Spencer, Moss Bros, Primark, JD Sports, Clarks, WH Smith, Caffè Nero and Starbucks.
The New Wolsey Theatre and car park is close by accessed via Chapman Lane.
The premises currently trades as one large retail unit, but planning consent reference IP/23/00024/FUL approves sub-dividing the unit into three smaller shops under Planning Class E, of approximately 53 sq m, 66 sq m and 45 sq m.
In respect of the upper parts planning has been approved for conversion to three residential flats, and external alterations.
There is no on-site car parking.
We have not seen the Title Deeds, but understand there is a shared pedestrian access via the rear yard, just off Crown Street.
