By appointment




A mixed-use investment property comprising a currently let ground floor shop, a maisonette above and a substantial rear extension, providing an annexe which is internally connected to the upper floors. Both the maisonette and the rear annexe are in need of refurbishment and could be subdivided to create two dwellings or a HMO.


Please refer to floorplan for approximate room measurements and internal layout.


Ground floor shop: We have been informed that the shop is currently let at a passing rent of £10,000pa. We would anticipate a current market rent of £10,000-£12,000 should the shop become vacant and offered to let on a full repairing and insuring basis.

There is scope to divide the residential aspect of the property once refurbished. We have considered the market rent of the upper/rear parts on the following 2 bases:

Refurbishment of existing accommodation to create a 4 Bedroom HMO - circa £400PCM per room (£19,200PA).

Subdivision of the upper/rear parts to create a 2-bedroom maisonette above the shop (circa £950PCM) and the annexe reconfigured to create a 1 bedroom flat (circa £825PCM). This would provide a potential rent of £21,300PA.

We would therefore anticipate a potential annual rent of £29,200-£33,300 once renovated and necessary consents/licenses have been completed.


Situated in a highly convenient location on Wells Road in Knowle, the property is benefits from easy access to local amenities and is within close proximity to the Broad Walk Shopping Centre. There is also excellent access to the city centre from Wells Road via bus, car or bicycle.


Currently occupied by a nail salon, the shop comprising a large open-plan shop floor, kitchen, WC and two further rooms to the rear with access to the back courtyard.


Comprising a loft room/bedroom with en-suite, large first-floor lounge/diner and kitchen. The main entrance to the maisonette is via an external staircase to the rear, access is provided through the rear courtyard from Greenmore Road.


Comprising a bedroom, reception room and further reception room that can also be accessed from the maisonette on the first floor and an entrance room on the ground floor followed by a WC and reception room. There is also an external store room that would be ideally suited for bike/bin storage.


Comprising a courtyard that is accessed via a small lane from Greenmore Road. There is rear access from the courtyard to both the annexe, maisonette (via a metal staircase leading to the first floor) and the ground floor shop.


Completion for this lot will be 8 weeks or sooner by mutual agreement.
