Lot 20 - Commercial Property with Planning for Five Flats and Commercial Unit



A former public house and gymnasium with full planning for five flats and a commercial unit to the ground floor. The planning consent does not fully utilise the floor space available therefore subject to the relevant consents further development may be possible.

The building briefly comprises: entrance porch, main bar, side hallway, kitchen, wash room, boiler room, storage room, bar area, rear hallway, ladies and gents toilets, basement storage and function room to the ground floor. With a further two function rooms, storage room and ladies and gents toilets to the first floor. On the second floor can be found two reception rooms, kitchen, three shower rooms, storage room and four bedrooms. Externally there is parking for approximately five cars to the rear of the property, accessed via the side lane. There is also a balcony on the second floor to the side of the property.

Additionally, we have been informed that the property benefits from having a new roof in August 2021.

We estimate the property to generate around £57,000 per annum, after the renovation works have been complete. The residential flats bring in circa £39,000 and the commercial unit £18,000.

The property is partially fire damaged and we have been advised that this is contained to one area on the first floor.

Located on the main thoroughfare through the village of Gowerton, this property is situated within a five minute walk to Gowerton train station, ideal for commuters to Swansea, Cardiff or Newport.

The property is positioned amongst a number of mixed use developments.
