Property description


Hexham is an affluent and thriving market town, lying adjacent to the A69 Trans-Pennine route, which provides access to the A1 trunk road, 20 miles to the east. Carlisle lies around 38 miles to the west and Newcastle upon Tyne City centre 23 miles to the east.

The town also lies on the main railway line between Newcastle upon Tyne and Carlisle and is an important retail, commercial and tourist centre.

The property is well positioned on the prime retail street within the town centre, with nearby occupiers including Iceland, Specsavers, Seasalt Cornwall, Boots, WHSmith, Caffe Nero, Costa & Waterstones.


The subject property comprises a mid-terraced, three storey unit of brick and stone wall construction under a pitched slate roof which has been extended to the rear with a two-storey brick and stone wall extension with a slate roof.

The building is split into two self-contained units. The ground floor shop unit having a modern timber plate glass shop front and rear access, which has recently undergone refurbishment and is fitted with carpets to floors and suspended ceilings with integral lighting.

The upper floors are one self-contained unit accessed by a larger than normal double width staircase off Fore Street. There are period features throughout including recently decorated sash windows and the interior is well fitted with a good standard of decoration to plastered walls and ceilings. There are several wide openings in existing walls to open-up the space at first floor making the traditional smaller rooms more inviting for the current showroom use.

Externally there is a yard to the rear suitable for loading or parking two vehicles, accessed over land of the former Robbs Department store where redevelopment into individual retail units is proposed.


Ground Floor Retail - 71.10 sq m (765 sq ft)
