A commercial investment featuring 30 studio units for Music Artists and two commercial units trading as a single vape shop, with a current gross annual income of £108,340 and a potential gross annual income fully let of approximately £125,440.

Property Description

The property comprises a three-storey mid terrace unit of brick construction split into 30 smaller studios occupied by Music Artists, Tattoo Artists and various other similar uses. To the ground floor is a vape shop occupying two larger commercial units which benefit from a further studio within their cellar. The property benefits from parking to the front and enjoys a prominent position very close to the Jewellery Quarter. The individual studios are accessed via several communal entrances.
