Northampton is a market town with a population of approximately 212,000 (2011 census) benefiting from excellent road links to the A45 dual carriageway from which there is access to the M1 motorway at junctions 15 and 15a.

Market Square is situated within the heart of Northampton Town Centre, in an area benefitting from high footfall and excellent prominence as well as good public transport links with the recently developed University Campus in very close proximity.


The property comprises an attractive stone fronted ground floor A2 retail unit approached from Market Square via a shared lobby. Planning consent has been secured (application reference N/2019/1256) for a conversion of the upper floor office space to 2no, two bedroom flats and 1no, one bedroom flat. Each will provide an unusually large floor area once completed.

The principle retail /office area benefits from four prominent display windows and is internally fitted to a high standard with lofty ceilings and carpet flooring throughout. Glazed partitioning currently sub-divides the space with an independent meeting room.

Stairs to the rear of the ground floor lead to the basement which comprises good quality storage space as well as a WC and a kitchen for exclusive use with the unit.
