    Three storey, investment property comprising a ground floor shop/office unit and 4 fully let apartments in a landmark location, just outside Cardiff city centre. Please note that the property immediately next door is also being sold by the same vendor as part of this auction and is listed as Lot 28.

    The property itself has generally been well maintained by the current owner and is in in generally good order throughout, though would benefit from some modernisation and improvement in part as and when tenancies vacate in the future. The building itself is of brick and stone construction and also benefits from uPVC windows and doors throughout and well maintained communal areas.

    The shop is currently empty but the four apartments are all fully let on AST's and incomes represent an initial gross yield of 9.3%. The rental schedule is listed below and would certainly have scope for some improvement in our opinion and obviously with additional income potential from the commercial unit. Please do consult the legal pack for verification of all tenancies and rental levels.

    Flat 2 - £445pcm (Studio)
