53 Commercial Road53 Commercial RoadA retail property on Swindon's Commercial Road is to get a residential makeover following its sale to a property developer.

Firat Construction Ltd will convert the first floor and ground floor rear office space of 53 Commercial Road into a residential dwelling, leaving a small shop area at the front of the premises.

The corner property, which was formerly occupied by Swinton Insurance, was marketed by commercial property agents Kilpatrick & Co, with offers in excess of £200,000 invited for the freehold. Daniel Pitt of Kilpatrick & Co said “The property lends itself well to a part residential conversion at first floor level, providing a living space either for a professional couple or individual which is much needed in the current climate for house/living space.

"Firat will also keep a retail shop on the ground floor in keeping with Commercial Road’s long and well-established retail and financial services.

We wish Firat Construction and their future tenants all the best for the future.” Kilpatrick & Co can be contacted at
