On the market for the first time in over 100 years and dating from 1874 this mixed use property of circa 5,000 Sq Ft - this unique property was formerly a bakery but has been occupied by a prominent local business since the 1970's with living accommodation on the upper floors.
The property is sold Freehold and with vacant possession.
The plot ( 0.1 Acre ) has vehicular access from North Street to the rear courtyard with a mixture of commercial, storage and residential space arranged predominately over two floors.
The property is located at the start of the vibrant North Street within the popular suburb of Southville. North Street offers an array of independent retailers, gourmet restaurants, affluent bars, cafes and friendly public houses. Bristol City Centre is less than1 mile away.
A Pre App has been submitted to convert the building into 10 x 1 and 2 bed Flats.
We understand there is huge scope for a residential development subject to gaining the necessary consents.
Alternatively buyers may wish to investigate a mixed use or purely commercial scheme in this highly south after location.
Completion is set for 28 days with vacant possession.
PLANNING HISTORY PRE APP SUMMARY
Pre application no: 15/05433/PREAPP
Site address: 9 North Street, Bedminster, Bristol, BS3 1EN
Proposal: Retain retail space and access to North Street. Upgrade existing flats, convert storage facility to flats. Build new flats to height of existing structure.
We understand that your proposal relates to the description of development as set out above. It is proposed to retain the existing retail unit on the ground floor and to renovate and reconfigure the existing flat on the ground and first floors. At the rear, it is proposed to convert the old bakehouse, currently used as storage, into flats. It is also proposed to extend parts of the bakehouse.
Officers support the principle of residential development but due to the lack of detail we are unable to give you an indication on the quantum of development that might be acceptable. Similarly, it has not been possible to comment in detail on the new build elements of the proposal.
PRINCIPLE OF DEVELOPMENT
The site is located in a sustainable location within Bedminster town centre. The principle of residential development is considered acceptable subject to detailed design and heritage considerations.
Although the buildings on the site are unlisted, they make a positive contribution to the character of the Bedminster Conservation Area and their retention is welcomed. There is scope to improve the shopfront onto North Street and to remove the steel roller shutters. The original features such as the pilasters and window surrounds should be retained. At the rear, the old bakehouse is of interest and we would encourage that the original fabric and the window openings are retained as far as possible in any conversion scheme. We would not support the demolition of this building.
The Council’s Archaeologist has commented as follows: “There are no major archaeological issues. The reuse of the former bakehouse may involve some impact upon historic fabric and more information will be needed on the nature and potential impacts upon existing buildings”.
IMPACT ON RESIDENTIAL AMENITY
There may be scope to subdivide the existing residential accommodation into smaller units. The old bakehouse building would also be suitable for residential use.
The local lettings experts say;
The Bristol Residential Letting Co. are confident this development would provide a good return on investment if converted into flats as suggested. Don McKeever of The Bristol Residential Letting Co suggests a rental range of £725-£775pcm for 1 bed flats and £900-£950pcm for 2 bed flats, subject to being suitable for the professional market.
For full details of the EPC please refer to the online legal pack.
Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £750 + VAT buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller's minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
Pre auction offers can be only submitted by completing the OFFER FORM which can be downloaded within the online legal pack.
