Commercial Investment

This exciting business/development opportunity enjoys prime position in Argyll Street, Dunoon, only one street back from the waterfront and within easy reach of both foot and car ferry terminals. The property was formerly a trading B&B and Tearoom but has not traded as such since 2012 although all required facilities remain that would allow this business use to be revived to take advantage of the strong tourist demand in the area. With access from the street level and set over first and second floors, the accommodation comprises tearoom/dining room, owners lounge, private bedroom, kitchen, office , laundry and toilet facilities on the first floor and, on the second floor, eight bedrooms (two en-suite), tv lounge and shower/toilet. The expansive accommodation could be considered for alternative development subject to any required consents. The immediate area is earmarked for upgrade under the Dunoon C.A.R.S. (Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme) and this particular property has a liability under this project although, dependent on the specific circumstances of the new owners, grants are available to offset the cost. It is recommended that any interested parties make their own enquiries via the Dunoon CARS Project Manager at Argyll and Bute Council. The location and business/development potential allied with such a competitive guide price is sure to attract interest from both tourist business operators and property developers. Early viewing is recommend to fully appreciate the value on offer.
