Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Yvonne Fitzgerald is delighted to the bring to the market this excellent opportunity to purchase a warehouse with planning consent (21/01313/FUL) granted for two town houses in a prominent position in Wick.  This character building is of stone and slate construction and looks directly on to the Marina, and boasts fabulous coastal views.  This an excellent opportunity for an owner occupier, a developer for air b n b, or for those with a buy to let portfolio.  The property in its present state has been split over two levels, with a sliding exterior door.  There is power and light within the building, which also has a staircase leading up onto the first floor.  Internally the building is in a good condition and boasts exposed stone walls and original wooden floor boards which could be reused.

The planning consent has been granted for two town houses which would each have multiple parking spaces, a utility room, and a bin store on the ground floor.  The two houses will be serviced by a lift that will gain access to the living accommodation on the first floor, as well as an external staircase.   Each property will have a generous open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room with two bedrooms offering built in wardrobes and a shower room each.

As this is in a conservation area, the property will need to be reinstated sympathetically in keeping with the surrounding houses. 

As well as having its own dedicated internal parking within the building, further parking can be found outside on the street. 

With the marine projects and Wick currently being regenerated, these properties could be let out for holiday lets or could be a home with a lifestyle opportunity for an owner occupier who would wish to retain one flat and let the other one out to tourists who come into the area to complete the NC500 route.

The property is situated in the Royal Burgh of Wick, which is the most northerly town on the East Coast of Caithness and is on the very popular North Coast 500 (NC500) tourist route.  The town offers multiple stores such as Tescos, Boots, New Look, Superdrug, Pets at Home, Argos and B&M as well as banks and a post office.  The house is within easy driving distance of all amenities, including the Caithness General Hospital and Doctors Surgery. It is also within a short walking distance to Wick High school.  There are many leisure opportunities including a popular golf course, squash club and public swimming pool/gymnasium.  The town also boasts an Airport with links to Aberdeen and Edinburgh and has good rail and coach services, as well as being close to ferry terminals with frequent daily services to Orkney.

Please note an EPC is not required as this is being sold as a development site.
