60 New Road, CHIPPENHAM, Wiltshire, SN15 1ES
Chippenham is a busy and expanding town located in north Wiltshire, 4 miles south of Junction 17 of the M4 Motorway. The town is home to a number of major employers including Wincanton Group plc, Wiltshire Council and Good Energy.
New Road is one of the primary routes into the town centre from the north. The property is located directly opposite Station Hill so benefits from a high level of visibility from pedestrians and vehicular traffic using the Railway Station, Wiltshire College and the Olympiad Sports Centre.
Nearby occupiers include Prezzo, British Heart Foundation and The Brunel pub.
The property benefits from a double fronted shop front, with recessed central doorway leading directly into the open plan ground floor retail space. It is fitted with carpet, a combination of spot and strip lighting and gas central heating.
At the rear is a single toilet plus sink and drainer unit.
Stairs lead to a good open plan first floor sales area. A small partitioned stock room has been created at the rear, though the partition wall could easily be removed to extend the retail area.
The first floor is carpeted; has strip lighting and gas central heating and security grilles fitted on the windows.
Both floors are currently covered by a CCTV camera system that could be purchased and left in situ subject to a separate agreement.
The property is offered for sale FREEHOLD with vacant possession of the shop on completion.
We are advised that the property is not registered for VAT, so no VAT is payable on the purchase price.
The property is sold freehold. The freehold Title includes a passageway that runs to the side of the shop. Third parties have a right of way over the passage.
The property has been used most recently for a former Class A1 Retail Use.
