The Taverna di Bacco is a tenanted property and represents “an excellent opportunity” to acquire an income generating asset at market rent, according to Knight Frank.
The entire property is let to Wallace Calcio Ltd at a rent of €75,000 per annum on a 10- year lease, which started last September. This gives an unexpired term of approximately 9.55 years. There is a rent review at the fifth year based on open market review.

A large adjacent vacant unit with approximately 228sq m (2,454sq ft) of space for commercial use is also on the market. The two units form the ground floor of James Plunkett House, a development of 15 apartments, two ground-floor commercial units together with 12 underground car spaces.
The agents are guiding €240,000 for Enoteca Torino restaurant, representing a net initial yield of approximately 10 per cent, and €150,000 for an adjoining vacant unit. The property is available in one or two lots.
The rent is €25,000 per annum running for 10 years from September 2013, giving an unexpired lease term of approximately 9.55 years.
