Commercial development

Gardiner's Cottage is a former shop situated on the High Street in the Scottish town of Brechin. The property which consists of a ground floor, first floor and floored attic, requires a level of restoration throughout. This is a rare and exciting project with the potential to transform into residential accommodation subject to planning application. The property is accessed through the ground floor main door which leads to the former shop front, stairs to the upper level can be seen to your right hand side upon entering. As you walk through the shop front, to the right you will find a doorway leading to a large storage cupboard or former small room. Further ahead, there is an opening leading to a spacious back room. The stairs to the upper level of the property lead to a large open space with ladders extending up to the floored attic. Further ahead is a bright, generously proportioned front facing room with built in storage. A third room faces onto the back of the property along with a good sized former bathroom. Externally, there are stone steps to the right of the main entrance door that lead up to a second entrance door, allowing direct access to the upper level of the property. This is a fantastic buy for a builder or developer looking for a new project with high earning potential. Due its current condition, the property is unsafe for viewings. Please note that this property is a B listed building.




The property is situated on the popular High Street in the Scottish town of Brechin. Brechin sits on the banks of the River South Esk in Angus, and enjoys convenient location just off the main A90 dual carriageway between Dundee to the south and Aberdeen to the north, being only 40 minutes drive from each. The town offers a variety of retail and leisure facilities, with a greater range available in nearby Montrose. The nearby A90 makes Brechin ideal for commuters, and train stations are available at Montrose and Laurencekirk, each being within approximately 15 minutes' drive.
