A prime freehold investment opportunity, comprising a mixed retail and residential property, all enjoying a prominent town centre location.


This attractive stone built mixed use property is well situated to a prominent high street location, long established as a favoured trading position. Ground floor premises provide deceptively spacious retail and storage space extending to over 1,000 sq ft. The retail premises are occupied under a commercial lease due for renewal in 2022. At first floor level, independently accessed from the rear of the building is a two storey, one bedroom apartment, presently vacant with opportunity for cosmetic improvement, yet well suited as a letting investment to capitalise on the popularity of the town and scarcity of available residential property.

Bakewell is a thriving market town, often referred to as the Capital of the Peak District. The town centre bustles with year round tourist trade, which complements the activity of loyal local footfall, appreciative of a wide range of main stream and independent retail traders.
