Situated in the heart of Spon Street, no 17 is one of the few original buildings in the road and parts of it are believed to date back to the 16th Century. Located inside the Ring Road - the prime shopping area, station, university and Cathedral are all within close proximity. The building is adjacent to the Skydome (tenants include Wetherspoon, Harvester, Odeon, Puregym and Genting Casino) and backs on to the former substantial IKEA site which is due to be redeveloped. Coventry has recently undergone a major resurgence due to being the UK City of Culture this year. Spon Street has been morphing into a predominantly food and drink pitch over the past couple of years.
Unique, deceptively large, versatile and quirky. Comprising approx 4,500 sq ft in total, the building is currently configured as a hairdressing salon, a bar area, function room and various offices. The rear area had previously been occupied by Coventry Bridge Club since 1967. We are advised that over the years, occupants have included a doctors residence, watch makers, jewellers and a sweet shop. Subject to planning the property will suit a myriad of end users.
The accommodation is over three floors and there is separate access to the rear of the building via a private courtyard. The premises appear to be DDA compliant.
Aside from class E use for the salon, the premises have benefitted from D1/D2 use for the Bridge Club area.
There is a self contained garden area to the rear.
