Rose Street House and Shop are located on the front at Wick Harbour, with stunning views over the Moray Firth. The owners having retired now run this business on a very restricted trading model offering room only accommodation. The potential for further business development in the newly developing Wick Harbour area is tremendous as this area is currently undergoing a £10M renovation. This is very opportunistic and the property is well placed to take advantage of this. This property is fully equipped to carry out B&B or Self Catering operations as it is fully equipped with all bedding, furniture and fittings included.
The Shop was previously operated as a Hairdressers, but has purposefully been left vacant for an easier sale. It is the perfect location for a small takeaway, café, ice cream shop or offices, subject to consents, and would have a large readily available customer base from both locals and tourists. The shop itself measures some 45m2 and is front facing looking over the Harbour. The unit is self-contained and spread out over the ground floor only. The property has toilet facilities as well as a small kitchen and two separate trading areas.
Both properties benefit from their location both in ease of access and parking as well as the beautiful views on offer over the harbour.
Trade is now restricted due to the personal circumstances of the owners and only very limited financial information can be provided. Historically the business traded fully as a B&B and enjoyed a mix of clientele from tourists and holidaymakers to both businessmen and workmen who were operating in Wick and the surrounding area.
The current owners are now partially retired and consequently trade to suit their personal preferences; the sale is reflective of this and their desire to fully retire. There is no doubt that new motivated owners could develop the business at Quayside further.
Set within the popular town of Wick with attractive Harbour frontage, the property is ideally located to take advantage of the growing and major business developments underway and planned in Wick and surrounding areas. Projects such as the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm site which is located 13.5 km (at its closest point) from the Caithness Coast in the Outer Moray Firth; the proposal is to install up to 110 turbines. Others include new nuclear archive, the HVDC Cromarty Firth Project and associated Country wide substation infrastructure. These along with other local projects are creating a requirement for business premises and short term accommodation within the town.
3-BEDROOM HOUSE (2 ROSE STREET)
This attractive property is accessed from Rose Street. The ground floor access opens into a spacious entrance hallway which leads into a well-appointed kitchen with plentiful wall and floor mounted units. The kitchen has a Rangemaster cooker and a full range of white goods. A dining table fits easily into the kitchen. Off the hall is a cloak cupboard and stairs leading to the first and second floors which access 3 double bedrooms, all of which benefit from en-suite facilities. Also on the first floor is a spacious lounge with views to the Harbour. Throughout there is ample storage facilities. The house is offered in good condition with well-presented decor. This property is presented for sale full furnished and equipped as either a business prospect or as an ideal family home.
RETAIL UNIT (1 ROSE STREET)
This attractive retail unit has a prominent corner location with accesses from Harbour Quay and Rose Street. This compact unit extends to approximately 42m2 and is configured to a hairdresser’s salon but is presently vacant. The internal construction is mainly of stud walling and therefore could be reconfigured for other potential uses subject to consents. The facilities include a counter unit, a staff kitchenette plus a staff wash room. Access is via a door on the harbour and the property benefits from lovely views.
Both properties were run as one business, along with Quayside B&B next door, and the owners are open to any negotiation to sell both properties (Quayside, vacant unit and 2 Rose Street) together as a single business unit. Both properties would make good long term lets, or private properties with casual B&B or self-catering lets.
The property has all major mains services (electricity, gas, water and drainage). Heating and water is provided by gas fired boiler. The property is double glazed. Wi-Fi and Satellite TV are provided in the residential area.
Trading to a restricted level but with potential to develop turnover further. Trading information will be made available to seriously interested parties subsequent to viewing.
