Victoria Parade, Torquay Guide Price £400,000 (Freehold)

Top »

Full Details

Commanding a first class position overlooking Torquay harbour inner basin it is a rare opportunity to be able to purchase freehold property in this location.

In recent years the focus for both retail and leisure has altered within Torquay and demand has significantly increased for harbourside property with its burgeoning Café culture.

Recent nearby developments have seen Hampton by Hilton arrive into town with a new Premier Inn currently under construction behind bring approximately new 400 rooms.

Leisure orientated businesses have seen fit to invest in Torquay with Boston Tea Party recently opening a short distance away and Taco Bell also currently fitting out.

The demise of Debenhams has seen that freehold being acquired by the local council who have now released plans of a proposed retail leisure and residential redevelopment which will only further add to the desirability and long term investment suitability of this site in our opinion. Property within the Harbour area is we believe an excellent area to invest.

Both shop units currently have rateable values below £12000 threshold so another strong attraction to tenants looking to relocate harbourside as well as the great footfall.


Offers are invited with a guide price of £400,000 reflecting at £400,000 at net initial yield of 6.31% allowing 3.75% costs of purchase.

We believe that this, in our opinion reversionary investment, would qualify for a SIPP fund purchase but also suit many investors looking for a good long term quality investment.
