Bathgate is a popular West Lothian town situated off junction 3A of the M8 and is approximately 5 miles and 15 miles west of Livingston and Edinburgh respectively.
The subjects are located on Jarvey Street on the corner of Hopetoun Street at the east end of the town centre. The immediate area is retail and commercial but there is also a high density of residential property in the surrounding streets.
The train station is a short walk from the subjects and there are also a number of bus services connecting the town with surrounding districts. Local parking can also be found near-by.
Nearby occupiers include several cafes, the Bank of Scotland, Tanz Tanning Studio and an Italian Restaurant.
The subjects comprise a double fronted shop unit over the ground floor only of a two storey corner block with residential units on the first floor.
The premise was formerly a café/ takeaway business but is now vacant. Internally, the unit is well fitted and with a good specification. The ground floor shop is a regular shaped sales area with two large display windows to the front with a central recessed entrance door. There is a customer WC located to the left hand side. The front area is well fitted and is well laid to suit our clients’ needs but there is flexibility in the layout to create something unique to match the new occupier’s imagination.
A concrete flight of four stairs leads to the mezzanine level where there is a good sized ad regular shaped kitchen and preparation area with a window to the rear. There is also good storage and a staff WC compartment.
This offers an outstanding opportunity to further develop a business in a great location. The sales area is flexible which could be used for a plethora of uses such as a basic café/ takeaway, a retail space, art/ photo gallery; craft shop, a clinic or other ancillary uses.
The subjects benefit from a Class 1 Retail Consent.
