This well presented and spacious ground floor lock-up retail unit is prominently situated on South Street, one of the principal circulatory roads within the central retail area of the City and leading to the High Street. South Street forms an important pedestrian link between the city centre, Exeter Cathedral and the historic Quay and Canal Basin which is a major draw for visitors and locals alike. These self-contained premises form part of the renowned 14th Century White Hart Hotel, diagonally opposite Wetherspoon’s George’s Meeting House and within close proximity to a number of national and local retailers.
These attractive retail premises benefit from a traditional plate glass frontage with central recessed entrance leading into the main sales area. In recent years the premises have been occupied by Underhill Estate Agents and this area has formed the main open plan sales office and providing ample space for four reception desks. The premises offer a blend of old and new with the retail space benefiting from a modern suspended ceiling and lighting, flush finished walls and a modern raised floor in part whilst retaining some characterful features such as the centuries old Heavitree sandstone fireplace. Beyond this attractive feature is a further open plan office area, two partitioned office/ store rooms and staff welfare facilities including a kitchenette and single WC. A door leads from the kitchenette to a small, but useable enclosed courtyard area at the rear.
The premises benefit from A2 Retail consent making them suitable for Estate Agency, Financial and Employment Agency Uses. The premises can also be used for Class A1 general retail uses. Interested parties should contact Exeter City Council to confirm the premises have the appropriate planning consent for their intended use.
The premises are available on a new Internal Repairing and Insuring lease for a term to be agreed at a commencing rent of £12,000 per annum exclusive.
