Ciara Horgan of the selling agents is seeking offers in excess of €2.7million for the freehold supermarket and office complex, which will show a net initial yield of 7.24 per cent assuming standard purchasers’ costs of 4.46 per cent.

The yield is due to rise to a minimum of 8.19 per cent by the time of the next rent review in three years.

Iceland Stores Ireland occupy the property on a 25-year lease which expires in 2030.

Unusually, the rent £173,987 per annum (€203,450), is payable in sterling, and the lease provides for further upward only fixed increases in 2020 to £196,850 (€230,185) and £222,718 (€260,433) in 2025.

At that stage there is a tenant-only break option.

The business benefits from a full guarantee by the UK parent company for the duration of the Iceland lease.

The two-storey over ground level supermarket and office have an overall floor area of 792sq m (8,388sq ft).

A 999-year long leasehold interest has been created out of the freehold title on part of the first floor and the entire second floor and let at a peppercorn rent.

Iceland’s UK parent company took back control of its Irish operation from a franchisee, the AIM Group in 2013.
The supermarket is located in the busy Grange Cross commercial area of Ballyfermot.

There are 10 car parking spaces to the front of the premises.
