The building is a traditional property set over three floors overlooking Inverness Castle. The top attic floor consists of two beauty treatment rooms and a tanning room, the first and ground floors house the hairdressing salons, one on the first floor with eight stations and two backwash basins, and the other on the ground floor with three stations and one backwash basin. Throughout, the property is presented in good condition and the quality of fixtures and fittings in the salons are of a high standard. The business is supported by a staff room, laundry room, small kitchen / utility room, waiting room, and three staff and customer toilets as well as plenty of storage.

TRADE

REASON FOR SALE
The present owners purchased the business in 1996 and it has grown significantly over time resulting in the busy salon it is today. Both owners have enjoyed building the business, but now after operating for many years and having dedicated a lot of their time to the salon, they now wish to take things easier, and cut back on their workload and responsibilities, thus allowing new motivated owners to pick up this established business and take it to the next level.

Neither proprietors intend to set up in competition, however, they would be prepared to rent a chair from the salon should new owners so desire.

THE PROPERTY
Traditional building, under a pitched slate roof, the premises has accommodation arranged over the ground floor, first floor and attic. The property, although operating as one business, is actually on two titles. This enables the potential split of the property should new owners wish to consider alternative use, subject to the necessary consents.

PUBLIC AREAS
Entry to Hermanas is at ground level and opens into a reception area and desk, at the bottom of a flight of stairs. To the right is a ground floor salon, comprising three stations and a backwash basin, there is a sitting area and toilet facility. Situated on the first floor is the larger of the two hairdressing salons with eight stations and two backwash basins. There is a good sized waiting room and toilets for customer and staff use, plus a tea and coffee making area, staff room and laundry room. Located on the attic floor are two treatment rooms, both double glazed, comprising a tanning room, therapy bed, therapy chair, nail bars and a workstation.

OWNERS ACCOMMODATION
There is no owners accommodation provided within the business, however, should new owners wish to split the property, as it is already on separate titles, it could be reconfigured as a flat and separate hairdressing business subject to consents.
