Property description

An opportunity to purchase a substantial Semi-detached Victorian style property with many original features providing an excellent investment opportunity with further building potential to the rear.

There is huge potential to create individual leases and sell off each flat separately after purchase; this really is a wonderful income opportunity neatly tied up into one very functional building.

The accommodation briefly comprises the main residence which is a four bedroom house, a two bedroom ground floor annex, a ground floor studio and a first floor studio. All of which are finished to a good standard and are currently let on short term tenancies.


* Main House £1250 per month, plus council tax and utility bills = £15,000 pa rent

* Ground Floor Studio £500 per month, plus share of council tax and bills = £6,000 pa rent

* Garden Flat (2 bed) £700 per month, plus council tax and bills = £8,400 pa rent

* Upper Studio £500 per month, plus council tax and utility bills = £6,000 pa rent.

Rent totals pa at £35,400 fully let.

The landlord currently pays the rental agents 8% FULL MANAGEMENT (this has recently increased from 5% but is still below the standard 10-12.5% known in the area).

The landlord pays the utility bills, tenants pay him a Direct Debit for a share of them. The landlord chooses not to make any profit from the utilities and all units are metered so can address any over or under amount paid to each income stream. No outstanding debts utility wise either.

Insurance is paid yearly at just over £400 per year with a VERY comprehensive policy who the landlord would recommend to a buyer.

Viewing is essential to appreciate and take in the full potential of this property.
