As the population of Barnsley is on the rise, the town centre is a prime location with a mixture of national and local retailers situated on the high street. This ground floor property has bags of potential for a new retailer to snap up – it currently has an open plan shop floor with a small kitchen and staff area.

The property is valuated at a guide price of £600,000 with a new FRI lease for 15 years granted to Paddy Power. The passing rent is £35,000 per annum. It will be auctioned at John Pye’s January sale taking place on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 January.

Richard Reed MRICS, head of property at John Pye Property, said:

“This is a great opportunity to secure a town centre retail investment let on a long lease to a very strong company. With a gross yield of 5.83% this could prove an excellent investment to any investors over the term of the 15 year lease.”

“Located in the heart of Barnsley, nearby occupiers to the property include national brands such as Nationwide, Natwest and Marks & Spencer.”
