42-46 Teville Road, Worthing, West Sussex, BN11 1UL

Guide Price* : £250,000

Vacant Retail Property with Development Potential (Subject to Planning)

  • Vacant retail unit with upper parts
  • 5,363 sq ft (498.2 sq m)
  • Potential for conversion to residential (subject to planning)
  • Guide price of £250,000 reflects a low capital value of £46.62 per sq ft


The property comprises three Victorian buildings that have been internally linked to provide a single ground floor retail unit and ancillary accommodation to the first floor.

The property was previously used as a motorcycle showroom, repair workshop and sales area for motorcycle related accessories. The first floor provided ancillary retail space and office space.

The property is within an established residential location and would likely suit conversion to residential use, either by splitting to provide three terraced houses, or by creating flats. A part or whole of the ground floor retail unit could also be retained. There is also potential to add a second floor within the roof space. All potential planning uses are subject to containing the necessary consents.


The property is located on Teville Road, a busy street in an established residential area with some retail units occupied by local traders.

The majority of the residential accomodation provided on the street is in the form of Victorian terraced housing which has been converted to provide flats.

The area is likely to benefit from the nearby Teville Gate development, a mixed use scheme which, if approved, will provide flats, a hotel, retail and leisure accommodation. This, alongside the approved 92,000 sq ft redevelopment of Teville Gate House will likely provide a significant boost to local retail rents and housing prices.




An application has been made (Reference: AWDM/1252/19) for the Demolition of part and conversion of part of the property to provide 4 x one bedroom and 2 x two bedroom flats alongside an A3 and A4 unit.

Please consult the local authority website for more information.
