For Sale


CUMBRIAN VILLAGE SHOP WITH RESIDENCE in Wigton for Sale. Under the same husband and wife ownership for the last 16 years and only now selling due to retirement and illness, this highly desirable property benefits from outstanding living accommodation with lovely views out to Keswick, a successful and profitable card and gift shop business and a Local Plus Post Office earning remuneration of circa £10,000 per annum. Located in a small town in the north west of Cumbria, between Maryport and Wigton, owners have easy access to some of the most beautiful sites in the UK such as Skiddaw to the South and the Solway Firth to the North. Located on the main A596 road between Workington and Carlisle, the building is highly prominent and attracts visitors passing through as well as the local residents from several adjoining villages. The business has been run on a very low-key basis and short opening hours for health reasons and is prime for energetic and enterprising new owners to take advantage of modern media tools to promote the business and take it to an exciting new level. The gift shop provides good profit margins and we feel a website with e-commerce / shopping basket facility will greatly enhance the retail side of the shop. This is a charming and substantial business and property and we feel it is very much priced to sell quickly given our clients wish to retire and move abroad as soon as possible. The asking price represents tremendous value for money and given the condition of the premises and private accommodation we believe it will be of huge interest to potential new owners, therefore an early viewing arrangement is highly recommended. The premises comprise: Double-wide building, highly prominent and over ground, first and attic floors. Ground Floor Sales Area: Post Office counter, stationery and cards on one side and the gift shop sales floor to the other. To the rear of the shop there is a modern, fully-tiled toilet, a kitchenette and utility area. Rear door to small, partially covered yard / storage area. Accommodation: Stairs lead to private accommodation over first floor and attic. There has been much repair and refurbishment to all parts of the property in recent years and this is reflected in the spacious layout and level of comfort the residence enjoys. A spacious living room incorporating a formal dining area under a timber beamed ceiling and lots of natural light from large picture windows. Fireplace with log burning stove. Wide-plank solid wood flooring. Luxury and ornate family sized bathroom with designer roll-top bath. Large double bedroom suite with exposed stone wall and huge picture window. Second double bedroom with large window. Modern and spacious fully fitted kitchen with 5-ring cooker and double oven and grill oven. Solid wood counter tops and Belfast sink. Stunning countryside views. Stairs to landing with study area, closet and entry to long attic lounge / additional bedroom. Gas central heating and much of the property electrically re-wired. Stock £7,000. EPC Band D.
