AN EXCELLENT RESIDENTIAL INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY COMPRISING OF FIFTEEN X 1 BED SELF CONTAINED APARTMENTS CURRENTLY GENERATING £87,160 PA GROSS INCOME. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL WITH PLANNING CONSENT IN PLACE.

Ruskin Chambers is a former Solicitors chambers, located in the heart of Hull's Old Town. Hull was the 2017 UK City of Culture and the old town district is home to many museums, restaurants, bars and cafes. The four-storey building has more recently been converted into residential accommodation and occupied as a high standard licenced HMO, although each of the fifteen flats enjoys accommodation that has its own lounge/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Each flat is highly individual and offer character features as you would expect from a building of this type. There is also car parking for up to 11 cars to the rear and a garage that has power and light connected and has previously been let out at £200 pcm. In October 2016 planning consent was granted allowing its use as fifteen one bedroom self-contained flats. Subject to various conditions, building regulation approval and separation of the services, the DECEPTIVELY SPACIOUS four storey building can now be further developed to enhance the rental/sale value by offering fully self-contained apartments.
