Turnover

WE UNDERSTAND the retail turnover is in the region of 16,000/18,000 p.a. We further understand that Post Office Counters have intimated that on a new Postmaster being appointed the post office will become a Post Office Local. We are further advised that the post office income is anticipated to be between 16,500 & 18,600 p.a. As will be appreciated the appointment of a Postmaster is entirely at the discretion of Post Office Counter Ltd.

Stairs to second floor providing a landing with various large storage areas plus 2 further bedrooms, one very large double and one single.

Adjoining the main residence is a large triple garage and storage area in all approx. 535 sq. ft. Fitted with lights and electric power points.
Stairs and separate entrance to first floor 304 sq. ft. (old post office sorting office) with granted planning permission to convert this area into a self contained Studio Aparatment. Fitted with lights and electric power points.

In our opinion there is potential to convert the garage and storage area into the retail shop with sub post office, subject to the necessary planning permission, with the present shop being utilised as additional. Plans have been drawn up to move the post office into the garage.
