A former public house in Johnstone has enjoyed a substantial makeover with the freehold now available to purchase following the completion of the renovation works.
The former Black Cart public house was purchased by our client in 2021 and has since enjoyed a significant refurbishment, including the stripping out of the former premises, a new shop front and significant structural repairs internally and externally.
Other refurbishment works include fresh stud work, plasterboard and wood-fibre insulation (ceiling & walls) to support heat retention and limit energy costs.
This property provides superb flexibility, within a unique location and with high footfall and passing trade.
We expect this property to be very popular and therefore early viewing is recommended.
The traditional style premises are contained over the ground floor of a two-storey terraced building, which has a residential property on the first-floor level which is also in the same ownership and available to purchase separately.
Following the refurbishment works, the property is now a blank canvas, ready for a new owner/occupier to fit out with some potential concepts available to view in the photos section.
The newly-fitted shop front and entrance door lead to a welcoming reception area. Beyond this is a large space which could be utilised for a wide range of business uses, including a Cafe, Restaurant, Gym, Bar and traditional retail (subject to planning).
There is a good-sized conservatory which leads to a considerable rear garden area, offering a range of options for buyers that is private and enclosed.
To the rear of the garden is an external store with access from Canal Street. This is a potential sub-let opportunity (c.£5,000 p.a.), with the neighbouring bingo hall able to grant side street access for £1,800 p.a.
On the gable end of the entrance is another revenue opportunity through the advertising hoarding which should obtain £3,000 p.a.
There is an existing premises licence with a variety of activities that can be transferred, with the location having a great reputation as a pub and entertainment venue in the area.
11a Main Street is available to purchase for £215,000.
