Property description

A beautiful boutique and one bedroom apartment/holiday let in the coastal town of st ives


The business is located in Fore Street, which is the primary pedestrianised shopping area in the highly sought after coastal resort of St Ives. One of the country's most popular holiday destinations, St Ives plays host to tens of thousands of holiday makers each year. As one of the town's busiest thoroughfares Fore Street enjoys enormous levels of passing trade.

St Ives is home to The Tate St Ives Gallery and is famed for its quaint narrow cobble streets, pretty stone cottages, glorious sandy beaches and a wide selection of national and niche retailers, drinking and dining establishments.

The Business

The business was acquired by our clients approximately 6 years ago and currently trades as a ladies boutique and jewellery shop to the ground floor with a basement area offering storage, a kitchenette and staff wc and separately accessed, a beautifully presented one bedroomed maisonette, which our client currently lets through Airbandb as holiday accommodation.

Our client has recently relocated out of county and, as such, the business is largely staff operated and trades Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm during the winter months with extended opening until 9pm during the summer season.

Trading accounts for the boutique for the year ending 31st March 2018 show sales of £117.076 with a 56% gross profit margin. We understand that the holiday let generates in the region of £18,000 per annum with a 77% profit margin. Further accounting information will be made available to interested parties, further to a viewing, in the normal manner.
