Just streets away from Blackpool’s seafront is this unsuspecting property that could be the beginnings of a new venture.

Tucked away just off of the Promenade is the run down property, formerly a commercial unit but now, without any owner, the property is in need of quite a bit of work.

Along Clarendon Road, down a side street, is the two storey detached workshop unit, still filled with the evidence of its once thriving days.

 

The exterior of the building, whilst probably the most intact part of the property doesn’t fill onlookers with much hope for its future, but upon closer inspection, this small shed-like unit could be a real gem.

Currently on the bidding market, prices for this property start at £60,000 with the auction date scheduled for later this January.

Inside, the unit briefly comprises ground floor open plan workshop which is accessed via double doors – this is quite the selling point for the property and could make for a brilliant studio or an enhanced workshop space.

Up on the first floor, there is a great opportunity for office spaces for a smaller company with reasonably sized rooms and even a small kitchen space for those all important brew breaks.

From the work shop there is separate access to the first floor where the two offices, kitchen, store and toilets can be found.

Both office rooms have ample amounts of space for desks, chairs printers and storage furniture making it and ideal place to work.

The kitchen is big enough for two people to use at one time so again, for a smaller company in need of an office, this space is truly ideal.

While it may seem the obvious option to use the building as a work shop and office, there is still room for so much more.

The entire building could be converted into small flats, perfect for single individuals looking for a local place to live.

It could be used as a salon with each room ideal for beauty treatments- for £60,000 this could be an investor’s dream.

The auctions has been scheduled for January 20 at 12pm- more details can be found on the website.
