It has a weekly open air market and a wide range of shops, restaurants & cafes, a primary school, church & chapel, doctors surgery and active community life. It is very popular with both tourists and locals alike. The property itself is positioned in a prime trading position on the bustling retails street leading to the market square in the heart of the town. J R Iveson is a well established Dales Electrical Business. This family firm have been running since 1978, they supply and repair most electrical goods. They have a great reputation and accounts which are available by request. The current owner is looking to retire, hence the reason for sale. However, the property is perfect for a range of uses. It would make an excellent investment property. The shop space is on the ground floor with accommodation above. There is a covered shop frontage outside, with two windows to the street. Internally is the main shop space and a smaller shop to the rear, there is an office behind the counter. At the rear is a workshop/ store room with staff shower room. The living accommodation above is deceptively spacious. There is a lovely, bright dining kitchen and separate dining room at the rear and a sitting room with open fire at the front. On the first floor are two rooms which are currently used as storage but would be ideal bedrooms. Upstairs is a superb master bedroom and family bathroom. Outside, is access across a rear yard and there is a small stone shed, the property owns half of this shed.This is a great opportunity to purchase a freehold retail premises and an already established, profitable business. The current owner would also consider sale without the business or possibly sale of business and a lease on the building.http://jriveson.co.uk.
