The unique property is located on the road in the heart of the quiet Bailan Village, 5 minutes walk to the luxury Mercure Hideaway and 5 minutes by motorbike from Lonely Beach.
The shophouse is set centrally about 8 metres back from the road. On one side of the property is a fully mature garden (with room for 2 bungalows) and on the other side is a cleared concrete area, ready for development (possibly as restaurant space). There is also a large area, currently used as garden and for seating at the front of the house, which could be used as space for cars and motorbike rental. The shophouse itself consists of a large open-plan sitting and relaxation area, (ready for development or change of use to restaurant/cafÃ©/shop), a western style kitchen with built-in double sink, a western bathroom with hot water shower, sink and western toilet and a bedroom with space for a king sized double bed. There is also a walled off glass aircon room with its own doors within the shophouse, currently used for the core business of internet and bookshop.
Included in the sale are all fixtures and fittings of the internet business (3 x computer and extras/3 x LCD LG monitor/Wifi router and modem/scanner printer combo/3 x desk/3 x office chair/recently serviced air con unit. Books (approx 400) would be at an additional agreed price.
The house is connected to both TOT and KCTV and fully metered with two breaker boxes. Water supply comes from the landlord and public metered water as recently been added to the village.
Bailan is on a steady course of managed development â€“ there are now 14 bungalow resorts, one 4 star Resort (Mercure Hideaway) and The White House all within a ½ kilometer radius, as well as restaurants and two to three bars. It is very much still a local area with local people but it has excellent business opportunities as the tourist numbers in Bailan have increased considerably over the last 2 years, due to its laid back unspoilt atmosphere in contrast to the parties and noise of Lonely Beach.
