A row of distinctive shops on Shanklin High Street are set to go under the hammer.

The property is set to go to auction with Clive Emson.

A short distance from the theatre, the freehold row of three lock-up shops occupies a “prominent trading position” at 52, 52A and 52B High Street, Shanklin, and is guided at £60,000-plus.

Rob Marchant, Island auctioneer for the regional land and property auction firm, said: “Although previously arranged as three lock-up units, 52 and 52A, which are at present vacant, have been inter-connected by a previous tenant to provide a larger single trading unit but could revert to separate smaller lock-ups if required, subject to all required consents being obtainable.

“The third unit, 52B, is at present let under the terms of a commercial lease and trading as a barber shop.”

The auction ends on Wednesday, May 1, with bidding live 48 hours before.
