1 Market Street1 Market StreetSwindon property agents Kilpatrick & Co have been appointed to rent 1 Market Street, an A1 retail property in an excellent location right in the heart of Swindon’s town centre.

Situated in the pedestrianised area, adjacent the Brunel Shopping Centre and Swindon’s tented market, the property faces onto the redeveloped Wharf Green square, a focal point for major community social events in the town centre and home to the ‘big screen’.

The House of Frasier outlet store, Argos, Boots and Sainsbury’s are all close by.

Formerly Greggs before they relocated to Canal Walk, 1 Market Street is a two story end of terrace shop of traditional brick construction under a tiled roof, extending to 1,300 sq ft.

The property has had most of its fixtures and fittings removed, including the service counter creating a blank canvas and flexibility for any new business to put their own stamp on the property.

However, the retail space still benefits from a fully glazed shop front with the added benefit of a security shutter.

Greggs previously had an outdoor seating area under license and this could be re-applied for if desired with Swindon Borough Council.

To the rear of the property there is still partitioned staff areas which could be used for office, staff room or storage if desired.

There is also a back exit leading out into a small private alley, ideal for stock deliveries and possible storage needs.

The current use for the property is A1 retail but could be changed to A3 café /restaurant subject to planning permission being granted.

On the first floor there are another three store rooms and a toilet, with potential to convert to residential use, subject to planning permission.

1 Market Street is available now on a new lease at an asking rent of £20,000 per annum.
