The property is situated in a central pitch on Blandford Street, an established retail location within Sunderland, which is pedestrianised and benefits from high footfall.  Blandford Street is a busy thoroughfare linking Waterloo Place to Crowtree Road, where Debenhams and an entrance to The Bridges Shopping Centre are located.  Neighbouring occupiers are a mixture of national and local operators and include Home Bargains, Yorkshire Bank, Heron Foods, Cash Converters, Bet Fred and Courtney Airsavers.

Transport links are excellent and the property is a 4 minute walk to Sunderland Train / Metro Station and is a similar distance from Park Lane Bus and Metro Interchange.

The property comprises a prominent, two-storey, retail unit with ancillary stores and office accommodation.  The building is of traditional brick construction with a timber shop front and large plate glass windows.

Internally there is a generous retail sales area at ground floor, with staff room, store and loading facilities at the rear.  First floor provides additional storage space and office accommodation.  A dumb waiter provides a useful link between floors.
