Description

THE OLD TOY SHOP

We are delighted to offer for sale this HIGH PROFILE SHOP with FLAT ABOVE situated on the main shopping street in Ballater. Rare to the market, this distinctive property is one of the oldest buildings on Bridge Street, standing on a prime corner site in a busy central location. Following flood damage the granite built property has been stripped back to bare walls on the ground floor and is ready for complete renovation offering the purchaser a rare and exciting opportunity to develop an attractive modern unit of considerable character.

The generously sized ground floor retail area extends to approx. 89.187 sq meters (960 sq feet) with former toilet and storage facilities. There are two large windows on either side of the entrance at the front with a further large window to the side looking onto Albert Road. An internal door gives access to the large store. This spacious and versatile unit would suit a variety of uses, subject to appropriate permissions.

The first floor flat extends to approx. 46.45 sq meter (500 sq feet) comprising sitting room, kitchenette, two bedrooms and a bathroom, with a useful understair storage area. The flat has a separate entrance door accessed from the enclosed garden area at the rear of the property.
