Situation
On Hanover Street the premises has a very prominent frontage on the main route into town. Stranraer itself is situated in the south west of Scotland overlooking Loch Ryan. The area forms part of the Mull of Galloway, Scotland’s most southerly point and is an area known for its natural unspoilt beauty. Stranraer is an important ferry port linking Scotland with Northern Ireland and the town becomes a hive of activity with tourists in the summer months while there is also a local population of approximately 13,000 people.

The Business
Hugh Irving Jewellers is a successful, bespoke business. Having been owned by the Irving family for over 90 years it is now well known and established as a historic business within the local town and wider community. In recent times the business has sustained its turnover and profits proving it to be a viable 21st century concern.

Due to the strong local following coupled with the current owners wish to operate as a sole owner operator the business has never moved into online sales, this possibility could offer new buyers massive potential to expand and grow the business further should they so wish.
It is also important to note that the retail premises are flexible and versatile and could lend itself easily to a variety of other uses due to its prominent trading location, and spacious interior.

This property also offers a development opportunity.

The current owner has now taken the very difficult decision to dispose of this extensive, enviable site and business, due only to the current operators impending retirement.

Accommodation
Benefiting from both its own private on street entrance as well as access directly from the shop unit, the dwelling in its current format is spread over 3 levels and offered in most tasteful presentation throughout. The accommodation affords spacious, comfortable family living retaining many original features and is steeped in character and charm. On the ground floor the welcoming reception hallway is entered from its’ private street entrance and affords access to a formal dinning room as well as the rear hallway which in turn leads to a utility room area and back door. Also leading from the rear hall there is a large luxury dinning kitchen finished to high specification, with glazed door to a comfortable lounge or family room.

The original feature staircase with full height stained glass window takes you up to the first floor where there are 2 double bedrooms as well as the first floor formal lounge. This room features the interesting curvature seen externally and also retains beautiful intricate ceiling plasterwork. Dual aspect windows overlooking Hanover Street afford ample natural light. The family bathroom, featuring 3 piece suite and shower/bath, is also on the first floor.

The formal staircase continues up further to the second floor where 2 further double bedrooms are found, again with aspect over Hanover Street as well as a large store cupboard.

External
To the rear of the property there is a large private fully enclosed garden laid mainly to lawn and peppered with mature fruit trees

The Garage
At one time before the current owners’ occupancy the building adjoining the dwelling (which is to be included in the sale), formed residential properties. Although currently let on an informal basis as an empty unit for storage, our client previously had planning permission for conversion to 3 flatted dwelling houses with secure off street parking. These permissions have now lapsed, however we are in receipt of the drawings and due to the massive potential for development, interested parties may wish to make the appropriate enquiries with the local authority.

Public Area
The shop premises as previously mentioned are versatile and adaptable but currently finished in traditional style with solid wood features, and a variety of wall and floor standing display units which hold the stock. The shop frontage with security shutters has window displays showing only a small selection of the extensive stock holding.

Service Areas
To the rear of the shop there is a back room, or back shop currently used as a staff area and office.

Summary
This sale offers a very unique opportunity to acquire a historic family business as well as a delightful, extensive family home, on a large site. The property can offer the new buyers substantial development potential, benefiting from a most prominent town centre trading location. As such the subjects will be of great interest to developers, as well as lifestyle buyers seeking an opportunity to live and work in a bustling, thriving Scottish town.
