LANDMARK LISBANE TEA-ROOMS AND GIFT SHOP CHANGE HANDS
02 October 2017The Old Post Office in Lisbane village, Co. Down has been acquired by a private buyer. Dating back to the 1840s, the Grade II-listed property operated as a post office until the early 1990s, however it lay derelict for a number of years until it was sold and converted into tearooms and a gift shop in 2004.
Commenting on the sale, Mark Carron of Osborne King, who sold the property on behalf of its former owners, husband and wife team, Alison and Trevor Smylie, said: “There was a strong degree of interest in this thriving business which is also a well-known landmark within the locality benefitting from a high volume of passing trade. This was reflected in the fact that the sale figure achieved as well as the freehold business being sold in a short marketing period. The new owners have acquired a thriving business and charming property full of character that offers excellent scope for future business development.”
The commercial property, which includes car parking for up to 50 vehicles, a central courtyard and enclosed garden area with additional seating, was sold by private treaty.
