Surrounding national occupiers include TESCO Express, Dominoes Pizza, Ladbrokes and Sallys Hair & Beauty Salon together with numerous local operators.
The property comprises an extensive corner located property of a rendered design under differing roof types. The property could be classed as two entities, one of which is a two storey building of an art deco design under a pitched and copper tiled roof. The Aberdeen Walk section of the property is arranged over three levels under a pitched and slated roof. Timber framed display windows run across the whole building and two entrance doors are provided, one on the corner of Castle Road and one on the corner of Aberdeen Walks intersection with Union Street. The corner part of the property has art deco styled windows at first floor level whilst the three storey building on Aberdeen Walk benefits from recently installed double glazed sash windows at first and second floor levels. The rear of the property is accessed via Union Street and benefits from a passageway for bins. A fire escape is attached to the rear of the property and part of the rear elevation which projects from the main building line has recently been re-rendered.
Internally, the ground floor provides open plan sales accommodation of a split level design. Décor is similar throughout with the suspended floor benefitting from carpet coverings whilst walls are a mix of painted stud and solid walls. The ceiling is of a suspended tile design incorporating spot lights and recessed fluorescent strip lights. A store has been partitioned off towards the Castle Road end of the property and provides basic storage with external access to the rear of the property and onto Union Street. Two sets of stairs provide access to the first floor accommodation and are located at approximately the mid sections of the ground floor. Both male and female toilet cubicles are located at ground floor level both of which benefit from WC with low level cistern together with wash hand basins and mechanical ventilation.
The first floor accommodation is largely of the same decorative order and again is of a split level design with natural daylight being provided by perimeter windows. One of the walls benefits from exposed brickwork detail and the first floor in general provides spacious retail accommodation. Offices are located towards the Union Street / Aberdeen Walk end of the building and provide four cellular office rooms together with a kitchen and staff toilet. The kitchen benefits from wall and floor units together with a stainless steel basin and drainer and the four offices are of a good decorative order. The staff toilet benefits from WC with low level cistern and pedestal wash hand basin.
The upper floors of the Aberdeen Walk / Union Street building are in the process of being converted into three residential units (one on first floor and two on second floor). The residential units require work to be carried out mainly in terms of kitchen and bathrooms. Access to these units is via an external door on Aberdeen Walk and up stairs which link to the offices.
