New to auction is this exciting development opportunity, conveniently located at the lower end of Dunfermline city centre. Formerly the New Blossom Restaurant, the property extends to approximately 500 sq. metres (5450 sq. ft) over three levels. The ground floor was operating as the restaurant, including bar area, kitchen, WCs and Karaoke/Function area to the rear. The upper levels (first and second floors) are residential, although were being used as miscellaneous storage for the trading unit. The property has been historically fire damaged, and is unsafe for public access. As such, no internal viewings are available. An extensive programme of works is required throughout, offering a fantastic opportunity to add massive value by creating residential units or mixed use commercial/residential. Any development would, of course, be subject to the necessary permissions. The property is currently published as zero rateable value. The great location and keenly positioned Guide Price is sure to attract strong developer demand, and early expression of interest is strongly recommended.
