Situated in the centre of Ventnor's popular Victorian town centre, the ground floor of this three-storey building has previously served a number of retail/office requirements but is offered vacant for re-letting by the new owner. The upper parts comprise two flats which have been sold on a long leasehold basis.

The leases, both 125 years from 29th September 1995, provide for the head-leaseholder to collect a ground rental of £50 per flat, per annum. The head-leaseholder is also responsible for the insurance, maintenance and management of the building, recovering the costs from the leaseholders by way of a service charge.

Held on a long leasehold basis for a term of 999 years from 29th July 1882 at a current ground rental of £22 per annum.
