Standing in a prominent town centre high street location, an excellent opportunity to purchase a large commercial building offering extensive accommodation over two floors, plus additional lower ground floor access and loading area with outside space/parking to the rear.

The thriving High Street of Builth Wells boasts a combination of nationally and independently owned shops and has the benefit of year round trade generated by the town's position at the centre of the surrounding rural community. In addition the town has long been recognised as a stopping-off point for travellers between North and South Wales as well as holiday-makers staying in the area. Business is also generated by the large numbers of people who visit the Royal Welsh Showground for a diverse range of events throughout the year.

Upon entering the property from the high street, you are greeted with a retail space with maximum measurements of 9.03 x 7.01m, having a counter and till area, and at the rear, a door leads to a lobby with stairs down to the rear entrance, and out to the parking/loading area beyond. The stairs continue up to the first floor which comprises a large storage area, with maximum measurements of 9.14 x 7.18m, and having a WC and one and a half bowl sink with single drainer in a cubicle to the rear.

The current owners installed a useful electric lift for the lifting of heavy goods from the lower ground floor at the rear of the property to the top floor storage areas via the shop frontage.

Externally, the property has a good-sized parking area to the rear, along with a useful storage space, and the entrances are protected by shutters for security.

An excellent opportunity to purchase a property with plenty of potential. The property has potential to be partially converted into living accommodation above the ground floor retail space, but naturally any new owner would need to seek planning permission for change of use. 

Telephone & Broadband: Telephone- subject to BT transfer regulations. According to comparethemarket.com the property has a broadband speed of: 55.90 Mbps (average speed of Mbps).
