The subject property is located in the Kingstown area of Carlisle approximately 0.5 miles from access to the M6 at Junction 44. The premises occupy a prominent roadside site with direct frontage to the main A7 being situated opposite Kingstown Industrial Estate – the principal industrial and business location in the region as well as adjacent to a variety of both new and established housing estates. Carlisle city centre is located 2 miles south of the property. The surrounding area is extremely popular and busy and includes a selection of retail parks, supermarkets and drive-thru sites. Prime opportunities of this nature are limited in Carlisle due to a lack of commercial roadside sites.
The site extends to approximately 0.28 acres and comprises a former school building which has been converted for retail showroom and storage use trading for over 30 years as Kengas – World of Stoves (established 1991).
The main commercial building houses the showroom with attached stores extended over the years across the rear.
A self-contained 2/3 x bedroom attached two-storey dwelling house occupies the other part of the site with attractive side and rear garden areas. The property benefits from UPVC double glazing and gas central heating having two reception rooms and sizeable outdoor space.
There is currently parking to the front of the property with access direct onto Kingstown Road.
