Property Description

Full description

We are delighted to bring to the market the long established 'Seton Guest House', which has been in the same ownership for around 13 years. The property is a most impressive blond sandstone Victorian Town House that offers spacious accommodation over three floors and benefits from having a large double garage to the rear. The property could easily be converted into residential accommodation and would provide a substantial 7/8 bedroom family home if desired.

The seven letting room 'Seton Guest House' is positioned within a grand, tree-lined terrace that is located in the popular area of Dennistoun, which is situated under 1 mile east of George Square, in the heart Glasgow City centre, boasting a wide range of local shops, schools, bars & food outlets. The area also has a large Victorian Park, Alexandra Park, plus a well utilised local library. With terrific road and rail links to the city centre, Dennistoun continues to be popular with young professional couples and students. The city of Glasgow has a population of around 600,000 people and welcomes over two million tourists every year. Glasgow offers a wealth of cultural and leisure attractions and can act as the perfect base for visitors to explore the magnificent scenery which surrounds the city. The city benefits from an excellent communications network with transport links by road and rail to all major UK centres. Glasgow International Airport is located 7 miles west from the city centre.

Since taking over the business, our clients have continued to invest in the property, which includes a new wiring system in place along with an upgrade of the heating system. This investment continues to the public areas and to the letting bedrooms, each of which are well presented and offer guests pleasant and spacious accommodation. The overall focus at 'Seton Guest House' is in offering guests a warm welcome and comfortable stay within a most charming Victorian house, at reasonable room rates. This focus on guests comfort, along with the benefit of being located only a few minutes from the city centre, has resulted in our clients enjoying a high level of repeat trade, with many guests returning year after year. The location also means that the business picks up a lot of trade from people working in or around the city or workers involved in many of the new building projects nearby. The guest house is set to also benefit from the huge investment and large increase of visitors to the area from the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which were hosted by the City of Glasgow. The local area is due to benefit from the lasting legacy of the games, which, in turn, will only help to boost trade and, therefore, value of this already successful Glasgow Guest House.

To fully appreciate this terrific guest house opportunity, we would strongly suggest prospective purchasers arrange a viewing as early as possible to avoid disappointment. The business is only now being offered for sale due to our clients wish to retire.
