A High Street shop front which has been left empty for years has now been put back on the market for over £1 million.

The store located at 99 High Street in Marlborough was previously home to Italian restaurant chain Prezzo, but shut its doors in 2021 after the company announced mass closures.

Marlborough's Prezzo, which was located next to what is now Bunce's cafe, was one of 22 stores to close nationally and the site has remained empty ever since.

Now, locals could see a new business coming to town after the site was listed for sale and "available immediately."

Priced at a whopping £1,250,000, the High Street location offers 5,501 square feet of land consisting of a terraced, two-storey building with car parking at the back.

The building, which has been described as a "prime retail pitch" is Grade II listed.

Although it is currently unclear which business will snap up the opportunity, estate agents Graham and Sibbald have advised that it would be suitable as a "cafe, retail or restaurant space."

As well as the main High Street-facing storefront, the three-bedroom cottage also includes two self-contained apartments on the first floor with a courtyard garden just off Chantry Lane.

"Planning Permission and Listed Building Consents were granted to remodel the property in November 2023," said a spokesperson for Graham and Sibbald.
