It is adjacent to Barclays Bank and opposite to the main entrance of Browns Department Stores.

DESCRIPTIONThe property is of 3 storey stone construction, surmounted by a pitched and hipped, slate covered roof. Windows are of traditional, single glazed `sash` framed construction. To the ground floor are two entrance doors, although the entrance door to the west has been blocked internally. A further DDA compliant door and access ramp from the ground floor provides access to a rear yard, with some parking possible.
This magnificent period property previously formed a solicitor`s office, although it was significantly refurbished by our clients in the 2010s and let to YMCA and then Age UK Scarborough who have utilised it as a retail unit ever since.
To the ground floor is a spacious open plan retail area with manager`s office, understair cupboard, staff kitchen, disabled toilet and safe room.
To the first floor is a further sales area and two additional rooms, suitable for sales, storage or office purposes. To the second floor is a 1 bedroomed flat. This includes a kitchen, toilet/shower room and 2 additional rooms.
The building benefits from a number of period features such as exposed beams and sash framed windows. It has also been fitted with modern display lighting and TV/internet points. Walls are painted plaster and the floors are generally covered in good quality, hard wearing laminate.
ACCOMMODATIONThe property has been measured in accordance with RICS guidelines. The floor areas are:-
The ground floor extends to 66 m2 (710 sq ft). The first floor extends to 61 m2 (658 sq ft) with the second floor flat at 41 m2 (441 sq ft).
The total floor area of the property is therefore 168 m2 (1,809 sq ft).
SERVICESWe understand that mains services of electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property. The property benefits from modern, low energy electronic radiators and modern fire and intruder alarms.
PLANNINGPlanning permission for a change of use and alteration of offices (use class B1) to retail use (use class A1) on the ground and first floors, and to a 1 bedroom flat on the second floor, was granted under application number 13/01265/FUL on 14 January 2014. A copy of the planning permission relating to the development can be inspected at the agent`s offices. Following changes to the Use Classes Order, we now believe that the ground and first floors benefit from Use Class `E` which should allow for greater flexibility in terms of alternative uses. Potential tenants looking at alternative uses are invited to make their own enquiries with the local planning authority.
RATINGWe have been unable to ascertain the exact rateable value of the unit, although the ingoing tenant will be responsible for the payment of non-domestic rates under the terms of their lease. Interested parties should make their own enquiries with the VOA in terms of the exact rateable value and rates payable.
EPCThe property has an EPC rating of D (85). A copy is available to inspect at the agent`s office.
