Trading public house
The property comprises a two storey building with a trading public house on the ground floor with basement storage below, and four bedroom and box room owner’s accommodation over the first and second floors. Overall the floor space extends to 2,999 square feet – Basement 611 sq. ft, Ground 1235 sq. ft, First 770 sq. ft, Second 383 sq. ft. The property comprises bar, function suite with dining for 30 covers, games room, male and female toilets. Storage in basement accessed via a floor hatch in the bar. Ample free parking is available adjacent to the property. The Earl of Aberdeen enjoys a loyal local following with current income primarily relating from wet sales equating to around 300 barrels p.a. The current owner is looking to retire from the trade but there is an exciting opportunity for the new owner to build on the existing bar trade with the possible addition of food sales and, perhaps, letting rooms on the upper floors. In addition, and subject to required planning and consents, there would also be an option to convert the upper floors, or even the overall building, into self-contained apartments for holiday rental or owner occupation. The valuation role shows a rateable value of £9000 and may qualify for rates relief under the Small Business Bonus Scheme. The Guide Price is exclusive of VAT that may be applicable.
