Miles & Barr Commercial are delighted to bring to market this great lock-up shop in the ever popular position of Queen Street, in Ramsgate. It is in a prime location, next door to Waitrose and not far from the multi-storey car park, harbour, vibrant Addington Street and main bus station. The ground floor area is approximately 1845 sq ft and has large 'floor to ceiling' windows that allow for lots of natural light and perfect display spaces. The property also allows for deliveries to the side, and storage in the basement the full footprint of the main sales area. The owner currently occupies the property, and it will be sold vacant.
Usage class reformation in September 2020 has meant that this property on Queen Street can be used for a number of commercial ventures from retail to cafe and office to indoor recreation incorporating historic classes A1,2,3 B1,2 D, 1,2.
Above the shop, there are three residential flats that are sold off on long leases, and along with the freehold of the ground and basement commercial unit, the freehold interest in the upper parts will be included.
Ramsgate is situated on the southerly aspect of the Isle of Thanet and benefits the country’s only Royal Harbour, its status being granted by King George 1V in 1821. The distinctive and beautiful harbour has a vibrant yachting community alongside some commercial activity and was where the Little Ships evacuation of Dunkirk set out from in 1940. The town is enjoying something of a Renaissance with its large amount of Grade II Listed property, many set within elegant Regency squares, or overlooking the sea, others with links to or influenced by the architect Augustus Pugin. In recent years the Royal Harbour has seen many restaurants, cafes and bars emerge alongside quirky independent retail outlets, some utilising the arches on the quayside beneath Royal Parade. The town is steeped in history with associations to many well known figures including Queen Victoria, Karl Marx and Vincent Van Gogh as well as having a fascinating network of tunnels beneath the main centre. The fortunes of the town have been hugely assisted by the recent addition of a high speed rail link to London St Pancras making a commute for many a viable option.
