This 19th Century brick built property is sat on a substantial corner plot on Walker Road, Splott, Cardiff.
Splott is a district and thriving community in the south of Cardiff, close to the city centre and offers a good range of amenities.
The area was built in the late 19th Century on the land of two farms and was characterized by its once vast steelworks and rows of tightly knit terraced houses.
The population of the area is approx. 12,000 residents.
This prominent corner plot building is of brick construction, under a pitched, tiled roof, occupying an excellent corner position on Walker Rd, Splott, Cardiff.
The Convenience & Sweet Store is located to the front of building and benefits from a main road frontage.
The current tenants have been at the premises for 2.5 years and have created a busy little corner shop.
The shop is creating a rental income of £450 per month.
The Garage/Workshop is located to the rear of the building and is currently being utilised as a business for converting motor vehicles into motorhomes.
The tenant has been trading from the premises for 3 years and is keen to purchase this part of the building for £50,000 if the new owners are interested in selling.
