Rare opportunity to buy adjoining freeholds in central Swindon

Written by Peter Davison.

Regent Street SwindonThree adjoining freeholds on Swindon's bustling Regent Street have come to the market with commercial property firm Kilpatrick & Co.

They include the iconic 19E Regent Street, which was originally built for house furnisher William H Hunter. The firm's name still adorns the building's upper levels.

The property extends to 5,627 sq ft with frontage display to Regent Street and extensive return frontage to Edgware Road, including full height display windows on ground and first floors. It would readily convert to a restaurant or coffee house, subject to planning.

Its neighbour, 20 Regent Street is a 2/3 storey building of 2,004 sq ft, last occupied by Phones-4-U, with open plan retail sales space on the ground floor and ancillary office and storage on the first floor with toilets and kitchen on the second floor, which could be extended back over the entirety of the first floor and has recently been re-roofed.

And 21/22 Regent Street is a two-storey building of 3,190 sq ft offering open plan retail space on the ground floor and ancillary storage on the 2nd floor. Potentially an additional floor could be added. It has planning consent to convert to a restaurant and to extend to the rear with rear yard providing car parking.

Andrew Kilpatrick of Kilpatrick & Co said: “This is a rare opportunity to buy three adjoining freehold shops in a good location in central Swindon on the edge of the prime pitch and reconfigure the shops to improve layout and possibly extend and convert the upper parts to residential, making use of the rear access.

"The properties are available to buy individually or in combinations from 2,004 sq ft to 10,821 sq ft and with potential extensions could provide over 13,000 sq ft.”
