This is rare and wonderful opportunity to purchase one of the most iconic and well recognised commercial units with accommodation in St Ives (a super 2 bedroom separate maisonette) This building has come onto the market for the first time in over 35 years. 49 and 49a Fore Street is a Grade II listed property that sits prominently in the town centre in what we believe, one of the best trading positions in town with all year round trade. Located on the corner of Court Cocking, just seconds from the world famous harbour, the display windows can be seen when walking down Fore Street. The 2 bedroom accommodation is spacious and light with its own entrance on Fore Street and offering accommodation set over 2 floors and again a super spot for either living or letting. We believe this is a one off property in town that can offer commercial and accommodation benefits either to be used by the buyer or as a highly productive investment opportunity bearing in mind the popularity of St Ives and in particular commercial and living / rental space in the centre of town with a potential 7% plus return on investment. *business not for sale*
