Prime commercial property available to let in West Mersea, Essex
With a highly visible position on West Mersea’s main thoroughfare and generous parking, 47 Kingsland Road is a unique commercial property and a rare opportunity for the right businesses. Available to let as a whole or in major parts – from 2,430 sq ft to a total of 11,737 sq ft on an overall plot extending to some 0.7 acres – it is suitable for a variety of business uses, subject to planning.
Once home to the well-known Underwood’s Motor Group, 47 Kingsland Road comprises a former car sales forecourt, showroom, ancillary offices and car repair workshops, with a detached storage building which also benefits from its own separate access from Rushmere Close.
Its prominent position on the main B1025 Kingsland Road also means that it benefits from passing trade thanks to its neighbours: Boots, East of England Co-op and the only petrol station on Mersea Island, among other well-visited premises. Better still, passing trade increases substantially during the summer months when holiday-makers head to the popular Mersea Island beaches and sailing venues.
Owner, Gerry Wiggins is a local entrepreneur who started his career in the Mersea Garage on Kingsland Road before taking on a garage in Tiptree. 12 years later, he bought the Kingsland premises, which he now owns alongside five other car sales properties across Essex.
The overall property rent is £58,000 per annum exclusive of business rates, utilities and buildings insurance, with early occupation available immediately upon lease completion. At this price, and with Colchester approximately seven miles away, this site offers more space, more parking and more for your money than a commercial property at a similar price in Colchester itself.
