This property is being sold on an off-market basis by Vesta and presents a rare opportunity to acquire a strong yielding modern apartment block, with freehold, in the South of England, backed by a strong covenant to a major corporate tenant.

The property, based in the centre of Eastbourne, comprises 18 apartments over five floors, with all apartments currently tenanted and generating £221,860 of gross rental income in total per annum.

The principal tenant is a large international corporation who rents the majority of the apartments on a commercial lease basis and makes quarterly rental payments in advance. The freeholder is responsible for insurance and maintenance (including cleaning). The corporate tenancy is in its fifth year, having renewed and expanded the apartments subject to the commercial lease for the past 5 years on 12-month terms, which now run to September 2020.

The remaining apartments are rented to students on assured shorthold tenancy agreements.

The block comes with freehold, allocated parking and all apartments are furnished to a contemporary standard.

Managed operating costs are around £75,000 per annum, which include management costs, cleaning and linen, maintenance, utilities and insurance.

The block is based in Eastbourne town centre, within a 5-minute walk to Eastbourne train station, a 15-minute walk to The Beacon shopping mall and a 20-minute walk to Eastbourne Pier and Grand Parade.

Over the past five years, Eastbourne has been quietly reinventing itself into an exciting creative hotspot with a reputation as a growing centre for digital technology. Tourism remains a vital part of the local economy, attracting over 5 million visitors each year, with a visitor economy worth over £336 million.

The area is also set to benefit from a proactive regeneration plan led by Eastbourne Borough Council, including the new £54 million Devonshire Park Quarter redevelopment (a 20-minute walk away), which will provide cultural, state-of-the-art conferencing and sporting facilities, major highway improvement works (in partnership with East Sussex Council), as well as the recent £85 million investment by Legal & General into The Beacon shopping centre extension. These projects continue to underpin economic growth within the area and Eastbourne’s status as one of the fastest growing seaside towns in the UK.
