Guide Price£1,575,000

48 Main Street is a landmark building, prominently located in a prime retail pitch in the central pedestrianised area of Keswick, a thriving market town in the northern region of the Lake District National Park. The Town lies around 17 miles to the west of Penrith and 28 miles South West of Carlisle and is a bustling tourist destination with a seasonally fluctuating population.

Keswick is one of the ‘honey-pot’ towns of the Lake District and is busy throughout the year during an increasingly long season and has an excellent range of local, regional and national occupiers including Cotswold Outdoor, Holland & Barrett, WH Smiths, Cornish Bakery, Boots and the renowned outdoor clothing specialist George Fisher. The retail vacancy rate is around 1%.

The building is of traditional stone and slate construction arranged over three floors. The ground floor, and part of the first floor, is retail and the apartment is set over the remainder of the first floor and second floor.

The investment comprises four retail units and one residential unit and represents a rare opportunity to purchase an investment of this size within the town. The two principal retail units are let, with the remainder offered with vacant possession on completion.
