Northampton is a prosperous East Midlands town with a thriving local economy based on the service sector, distribution and warehousing and some manufacturing business. The town enjoys very good road connections by means of the M1 and A45 and has a main line rail link to London Euston.

Kingsley Park Terrace is a popular secondary retail parade forming part of the Kettering Road approximately 1½ miles to the north east of Northampton town centre. Apart from the other retail units within the parade the area is predominantly characterised by high density Victorian terraced housing. The University of Northampton's Avenue Campus lies in close proximity.


The premises comprise a two storey building with retail unit on the ground floor and a self-contained residential unit above plus one room in the roof space.

Internally the retail unit comprises a convenience store layout with UPVC cladding to the interior walls, lino floor, false suspended ceiling with attached strip lighting. A door to the rear of the retail unit leads to the outside yard. The upper residential accommodation is accessed via an external staircase to the rear, and provides a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom. In addition, a stairwell leads to the large double bedroom within the roof space of the property.

Externally the rear yard provides access to a block and brick constructed storage space, through which there is access to a delivery area off Oliver Street behind.
