      240 Oxford Street is conveniently located along the pedestrianised area in Swansea City centre and provides an ideal investment opportunity with a blank canvas on the ground floor, which previously has been occupied as a restaurant and cafe and a tenanted nail and brow bar on the upper floors, with its own separate access. We have been advised that the tenant on the upper floors is well established and has been in occupation for the last 6 years and is currently occupying on a 3 year lease at a rent of £6,200 per annum.

      The ground floor area extends to approximately 797 sq.ft (74.04 sq.m) including a sales area to the front and disabled wc and storage area to the rear. The upper floors are accessed via a separate entrance to the side of the unit providing stairs to the first floor. The beauty salon provides two rooms on the first floor for a nail bar and eyebrow bar and a store room/office, with the second floor providing a beauty room, offices, store rooms, kitchenette and wc. This accommodation extends to approximately 740 sq.ft (68.8 sq.m) according to the VOA website.

      In our opinion, once fully let, the property could be generating a rental income in the region of £25,000 per annum.

      The property is accessed directly off Oxford Street, with adjacent occupiers being a YMCA charity shop and Greggs, with occupiers in the nearby vicinity including Poundland, Pound Stretcher, Peacocks, Bon Marche and Waterstones. A new mixed use development along the street is currently underway. Biophilic Living Swansea will provide a living and working environment in the city, providing affordable new homes and workspaces alongside a community urban farm in the heart of Swansea.
