Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Andalucia (Barnard Castle Ltd). This charming independent gift shop and café is beautifully presented throughout and is very well supported by both local residents and tourists alike.
The gift shop established in 2005, offers an array of unusual gift ideas, such as bespoke jewelry, scarves, handbags, candles, quality crockery, seasonal gifts and much more. The store is immaculately presented, a real delight to browse around.
The café established in 2015, is accessed via a separate entrance. Stylishly decorated with quality furnishings and a high level of equipment installed and comfortably seating 35 covers. The café serves hot and cold food accompanied by a range of quality coffees and teas. Offering a calming atmosphere to relax and unwind.
The combined turnover for the café and gift shop is around £90,000 for this financial year with a gross profit of circa 54%. The business genuinely comes to the market due our client’s other interests and is looking towards retiring.
This stunning Grade II listed property also presents as a fantastic investment opportunity. Currently under construction and soon to be completed is a 2 bedroom flat. Our client has spent in the region of £90,000 fully refurbishing the café and flat to a very high standard.
In addition, recently vacated is an impressive adjoining house, this superb 3/4 bedroom accommodation offers the option of either owner’s accommodation or if let alongside the flat the rental potential for both would be in the region of £900 per month.
