St. Leonard Street Lanark

About this property

TRADITIONAL FIVE BEDROOM UPPER TOWNHOUSE WITH GROUND FLOOR RETAIL UNIT WITH OPTION TO DEVELOP INTO LOWER LEVEL FLAT.

This very impressive, rarely available complete traditional stone townhouse is situated just off of High Street in the much sought after market town of Lanark and provides an opportunity which will appeal to various types of buyers, business owners and investors - this is truly a very exciting prospect.

The property has, in the past, been divided into two separate accommodations which presently comprise: large ground level shop front with rear store/kitchen and W.C., and a beautiful seven apartment upper two storey villa which retains many original features and has a wonderful roof terrace with views towards Tinto Hill and beyond.

At present, the upper villa is being utilised as a lovely and quite unique family home with many wonderful features. The shop did have class one retail use and was a successful family run business until 2013 and this would be one option that could still be considered by any potential purchaser.

However, in 2010 a change of use decision notice was granted by South Lanarkshire Council to allow for conversion from a class one retail unit to residential use - condition planning permission was granted to form a 'residential flat with elevational alterations'. The time limit for this work to be completed has since passed but we understand that the notice could quite easily be re-instated. Copies of all of the relevant documents are available on request.

LOCATION

The property is situated in Lanark town centre which has an excellent selection of local shops, restaurants, good primary and secondary schools. And leisure facilities. Public transport links, including a railway station with direct link to Glasgow Central and bus stops are all within a few minutes' walk away and for those commuting by car, there is convenient access to Glasgow, Edinburgh and around the central belt.

The Heritage village of New Lanark, the famous Falls of Clyde and the beautiful picturesque Clyde Valley are all within a few minutes' drive.

UPPER VILLA

Access to the upper villa is to the side of the building via secure intercom system. From St Leonard Street you can enter through the original timber arched side/double doors into the cobbled close. You can also access through Wellhead Court, at the rear.

A curved staircase runs from the ground floor and on a half landing just before you reach the first floor entrance to the villa is a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom - this could remain as part of the present living accommodation or be utilised as a small bedsit and let out with (or even without) the shop if desired.

The first floor landing provides access to the formal lounge which has two large front facing windows, the family room/sitting room with another floor to ceiling window, a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and the stunning, modern fully-fitted dining kitchen with integrated appliances and rear facing window with charming window seat.

The top floor hallway access a further three large double bedrooms, one of which allows access onto the roof terrace, and the large family bathroom.

The property further benefits from having gas central heating, double-glazing and a plentiful supply of storage.

Parking is available in the cobbled close to the side and in Wellhead Court, just at the rear of the building.

Early viewing is highly recommended.
