255 Guildford Road is situated on a corner plot between the Guildford Road and the cul de sac Mount Pleasant, on the
outskirts of Effingham. Located with frontage to Guildford Road (A246) the area comprises mainly residential properties, with the King George V playing fields opposite.

Immediately to the west of the subject property is a two storey development of 5 one bedroom flats and a ground floor commercial unit which received planning permission in 2016. Prior to this, it was a single storey commercial building.

The M25 is 6.5 miles to the north east, Bookham station is approximately 2 miles to the north east and Effingham Junction station 1.5 miles to the north. It is within the boundary of Guildford Borough Council.


The property is a two-storey 1920s style building with a pitched tiled roof. It comprises a ground floor self-contained convenience store (A1 planning use) with a large shop frontage and a first floor, 2-bedroom residential dwelling accessed via an external staircase to the rear of the property. There is a large rear garden that runs along a residential road and an outbuilding at the bottom of the garden.


The retail unit is leased to a traditional village convenience store on a lease expiring 10th April 2020, granted outside of the security of tenure provisions of the 1954 Landlord and Tenant act. A rent of £14,000 pa is payable on a quarterly basis. The lease contains rights to use the two bedroom flat above. Full vacant possession can be granted prior to lease expiry, subject to agreement.
