Developer captures the Castle
As well as a prominent corner position in a mixed retail and residential area of the East End of London, the buyer of Plaistow’s Castle pub is getting an unusual bonus on his investment – a telecoms agreement that brings in £10,000-a-year.
“The Castle may not look like a potential gold mine at first sight. But as a substantial, three-storey, end-of-terrace building just five miles from central London, it could well prove quite a money-spinner for the investor who has bought it,” says Panayiotis Themistocli of licensed leisure specialists AG&G, who marketed the property.
“The buyer is planning to convert the upper parts to self-contained flats and re-let the ground floor to make better use of the accommodation, which will give the place a whole new lease of life.”
Along with the telecoms rental income, The Castle offers its new owner an imposing Victorian building with a footprint of 265 square metres (2,865 square feet). Plaistow Underground station is a short distance away.
