Yvonne Fitzgerald is delighted to bring to the market, a business opportunity, with this thriving butchers shop which is situated on Princes street where there is plenty of parking available for customers to shop. After successfully trading for a long number of years the present owners have now decided to retire. The shop has three large display windows to the front and a UPVC door opens into the shop frontage which is fitted with fridges, freezers, shelving and serving counters. There is also a slicing machine and a sink in the shop frontage. Off the shop floor there is an office which is fitted with desks and shelving and a door leads into the working room to the rear which is a large room that is fitted with stainless-steel working counters. There is also a large stainless-steel sink in this room. Off the working room there are double doors leading out to the front of the building and doors also lead internally to large storage rooms, a walk-in fridge, walk-in freezer, ladies and gents toilets and there is also access into the integral garage. Living accommodation is available to the owner, to live above the business, in a spacious three-bedroom flat. The lovely bright flat has a lounge, a good sized fully fitted kitchen with a dining area to the end of it, a bathroom and three bedrooms. Seldom does a commercial opportunity come to the market which includes accommodation above the business for the new owner to have on-site residential accommodation as well.
