Assigment of existing lease


Casa Juan is located in The Square in the sought after village of Mawnan Smith. Lined with cottages and historic architecture, the pretty village sits in an idyllic rural setting between the coastal town of Falmouth and the estuary of the Helford River. Due to its popularity, the village has seen several new residential developments in recent years and in addition to a growing population is also an extremely popular location for holiday makers due to the numerous nearby visitor attractions such as Trebah Gardens, St Anthony's Head and Glendurgen Gardens. The popular sailing waters of the Helford River are also easily accessible.

The Property

Casa Juan is located in the main square with ample parking for customers to the front and comprises a well presented dining room for up to 35 diners, well equipped commercial kitchen, preparation room and bin storage area to the rear. To the first floor is a spacious 3 bedroomed apartment with dual aspect open plan living area and recently refitted kitchen.

The Business

The restaurant was acquired by our clients approximately 3 years ago, (then trading as an Italian), and now trades from Tuesday to Saturday from 6 to 10pm offering freshly cooked Mediterranean cuisine. Whilst it is considered that there is scope to open the restaurant for lunch service, our clients choose to open evenings only due to their other work and personal commitments. The business is operated with the assistance of some occasional part-time waitresses at peak times.

For further information regarding the menus and opening times we refer you to our clients' website

Trading accounts for the year ending 31st March 2019 show net sales of £82,426 with a gross profit of £49,683. Further accounting information will be made available to interested parties subsequent to a viewing in the normal manner.

Our clients currently occupy the flat, but the lease allows for this to be sublet on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement should accommodation not be required. This would then generate additional revenue of approximately £8,000pa.
