THE WOODMAN, LONDON SW19

Intrinsic are marketing a new lease on a fantastic pub opportunity in Wimbledon Park, an opportunity for a high quality A4 operation in a locally important building. A pub/inn has been on the site for almost 120 years serving the surrounding community and the wider catchment as a well known and well recognised destination. The successful operator is likely to be able to provide a contemporary customer environment and a high quality menu as well as a varied range of drinks including local craft beers and ales from south west London’s breweries, micro breweries and craft producers.

The premises will comprise a remodelled public house on ground floor and first floor, with outside area. The floor areas are to be confirmed but on the ground floor are likely to have around 2,750 sq ft GIA with the upstairs (circa 1,800 sq ft) capable of potentially being converted to up to seven letting bedrooms or staff accommodation. Available for occupation early summer 2018, a new lease will be available with offers in excess of £100,000 pax sought. Click here to download the brochure.

THE CHAPEL

The Chapel  was founded in 2001 as a luxury concept hair spa and the Group now  has four salons: Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Islington and Verbier. Each of the buildings has distinctive qualities in order to create a five star environment for guests – the space and environment is an important feature of all salons in order to create the feeling of space, mood, colour and light for guests.

Intrinsic Property are identifying the next salons for The Chapel. The broad criteria for property acquisition are as follows:

SIZE: 3000 sq ft plus

TYPE: properties with distinctive features, character (modern or old) and potential feeling of ‘space’. A1 (retail use) is needed but buildings in alternative use requiring change of use will be considered.

POSITION: out of town, in town/High Street or destination locations will be considered

LOCATIONS: major, affluent towns/suburbs in the south east will be considered but of particular interest are Brighton, Chichester, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Cobham, Farnham, Guildford, Kingston, Reigate, Richmond, Wimbledon, Blackheath, Bromley, Marlow, Windsor, Walton/Weybridge, St Albans

LEISURE PREMISES, WARE

Ware is an attractive and affluent market town of around 18,800 people in Hertfordshire, close to the county town of Hertford.

We’re just about to bring to market a 6,500 sq ft D2 opportunity in the town centre. Located on 1st and 2nd floors above a parade of shops, the premises are currently trading as a snooker club, but having D2 use could be used for other leisure purposes such as health & fitness/gym, arts or small cinema or music venue.

Full details are available here.

EXMOUTH

Exmouth is a great seaside town in Devon and with its population of around 36,000, it  is an all year round town, not just busy during the summer holidays.

Clients of ours are carrying out a redevelopment of a Grade II Listed Building in the town centre adjacent to the town hall and opposite Prezzo. The location is on the edge of the main shopping area with a number of pubs and restaurants in close proximity including some of the most popular restaurants in the town centre such as Millers, Saveur, The Oddfellows, The Chronicle and Bumble & Bee at Manor Gardens.

The property will offer around 3,000 sq ft in a highly visible corner location with restored character frontage and return glazed frontage. With such extensive window frontage, unsurprisingly there’s loads of natural light that floods in to the ground floor. Great for people watching too! The premises have A1 or A3 use so there’s many different retail and restaurant uses that are suitable here. Click here for further details.

RIDGWAY, WIMBLEDON VILLAGE

Situated in the residential part of Wimbledon Village just south of Wimbledon Common, we’re letting the ground floor and basement of this rather striking building. There are a number of potential uses in this location from boutique retail unit to showroom (most recently used as a kitchen design showroom) or even an office/studio as it has dual consent for either A1 or B1 use. With triple aspect to the ground floor there’s loads of natural light and extra visibility to your potential customers. Rental offers in the region of £39,000 per annum are being sought.

CADOGAN TERRACE, LONDON E9

Cadogan Terrace runs around the east side of Victoria Park and is one of the area’s most picturesque streets – located between Hackney itself, Homerton, Bow and London’s most hip regeneration area, Hackney Wick.

We’re just about to bring to market a 2,100 sq ft A4 opportunity in this Victorian residential terrace, right opposite the St Mark’s Gate entrance to East London’s finest green space. .

The premises are located in a stunning new 8 apartment development adjacent to the Hertford Union Canal – they comprise split level accommodation, with an upper ground floor with picture window and the lower ground floor having an outside terrace. The rent is £77,500 per annum and we’re going to be looking for premium offers in the region of £50,000 for the lease on this shell unit. Full details are available here.

CHICHESTER

This is a great city centre retail or restaurant opportunity totalling around 3,300 sq ft over two levels. It’s opposite the Cattle Market car park (at 900 spaces, the largest in the city) and just off the end of East Street, Chichester’s pedestrianised shopping street. There’s a chance to create a bit of a ‘wow factor’ with the frontage as the first floor is fully glazed and benefits from natural light from front and back – a great sales space or seating area for a restaurant.

Carluccio’s, Brasserie Blanc, Turner’s Pies and ASK are nearby as well as Attibassi, the specialist Bologna coffee brand, who’ve opened their first UK espresso bar in Chichester. Boston Tea Party are due to open a new branch close by, just off East Street and close to major footfall drivers such as New Look, Next, T K Maxx and H&M. Click here for further details.

HOTPOD YOGA

 

Hotpod Yoga was launched in January 2013 and has since gone on to launch successful operations around the world. Their approach to Yoga differs from the traditional style of yoga as hot Vinyasa Yoga classes take place in their very own designed and patented inflatable, heated studios. Award winning designers Inflate and Nick Elias did battle with physics to come up with a portable, practical and hygienic studio that’s also simply a sublime yoga environment. With pods perfected and popping up all over and a franchising operation in place, it’s now all about the yoga.

At Hotpod they provide an intensive and balanced physical workout, restoring calm and clarity to the mind in soothing, cocoon-like pods. 37°c heat warms the muscles and aids flexibility as well as making the heart work harder. Thousands of years of yoga tradition are pared down to some critical, logical and powerful elements; creating a highly accessible, high impact yoga for all ability levels – and popping up in places you might not expect. They have a simple mission: to make the benefits of hot yoga accessible in as many ways (and places) as they can think of.

Hotpod currently have over 20 franchised sites across 5 countries, running thousands of classes every month. In amongst the mix of franchised sites, event and promotional pop ups, Hotpod have now opened three franchisor sites in London, having acquired new premises in Hackney, Notting Hill and Brixton for permanent company studios.

Intrinsic property are now looking for further sites in London for this exceptional business – potentially up to 15 sites over the next 3 years. Great spaces are an essential part of their business to create the relaxing and chilled atmosphere necessary for their classes. Hotpod can transform any space, very quickly and cost effectively into a fantastic yoga facility. We need between 750 sq ft and 1200 sq ft  and around 2.7m of height, a reasonable power source all in great location. Battersea, Peckham, Clapham, Balham, Richmond and Kingston are all locations that are examples of where Hotpod are targeting but there are many locations throughout London that they’d consider. But whilst the location is important, the style and simplicity of space and premises is crucial.

Ground floors, basements and even first floors will be considered and ideally the space will be warehouse style but they are open to adapting any kind of space to their ‘look’. D2 planning use (assembly and leisure) suitable for gyms or indoor sports/recreation is preferred but D1 use may be possible.

if you’ve got any suitable property then why not give us a call to see if it’s suitable for Hotpod?
