37 & 37A Market Place comprise a double fronted, Grade II Listed dual use premises in a prime location right in the heart of the Market Place in Pickering. This main thoroughfare is alive with locals, tourists and visitors who are attracted to an array of shops, cafes and numerous interesting places such as the North York Moors Steam Railway, the Beck Isle Farming Museum, Pickering Castle, nearby Dalby Forest and of course the great North York Moors themselves. With the neighbouring market towns of Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Malton being close by, Pickering is in a perfect location with the district of Ryedale and over the years has become an increasingly popular holiday destination for many.

With front and rear sales, plus a storage room to the rear, the ground floor commercial space extends to approximately 750 sq.ft. from where the current owners of the premises run an established ladies & childrens clothing outlet trading as 'The Smiddy". Previous uses have included a chemist and long established, family jewellers. If a purchaser wishes to buy the business, this is to be negotiated separately along with shop fixtures and fittings, stock etc.

Situated above the shop is a very smart two bedroom apartment which, within recent years, has been extensively refurbished and is currently let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy at a modest rental level of £600 per calendar month, exclusive of electricity, gas and Council Tax. Having it's own private access through a gated pathway, the apartment offers 'roomy' two bedroom accommodation with gas central heating, arranged over two floors. A small, private yard lies to the rear of the premises. In Pickering there is a very high demand for both short term holiday lets and longer term lets.

Services: Mains water, electricity and gas are connected. Connection to mains drains. Gas central heating to the Apartment (37A). Dimplex electric heaters on the ground floor.

Council Tax for the Apartment: North Yorkshire Council - band B.

Rateable Value of the Shop: £11,000

Tenure: The property is freehold and vacant possession will be given upon completion.

Viewing Arrangements: Strictly by prior appointment through the Agents Rounthwaite & Woodhead, Market Place, Pickering, YO18 7AA. Tel: 01751 472800 or 01751 430034.
