Prestonpans is situated in East Lothian approximately 11 miles east of Edinburgh City Centre.

Hawthorn Road is located to the south of Prestonpans High Street and is accessed just off Preston Road. It is only 5 minutes from the A1 and less than 1 mile from Prestonpans railway station where there’s regular commuter services to Edinburgh.  There’s also regular bus links from directly outside the property on Preston Road.

Nearby occupiers, on what is a popular neighbourhood retail parade, include Scotmid, a Pharmacy and other local retailers.


The subjects comprise an extensive detached property of brick construction beneath a pitched tiled roof with a mixture of stone frontage and roughcast walls.

Internally, the building is configured over ground and first floor but also has an extensive basement/cellar area.  The ground floor was formerly used as a gymnasium and is split into three distinct rooms based on its previous use as the Johnnie Cope public house, and also includes kitchens, stores and WC facilities.  

The first floor, which benefits from a separate entrance but can also be accessed internally, was until recently a local boxing club. The main room is dual aspect and enjoys good levels of natural daylight.  It has hard wood flooring throughout and has generally been fitted out to a good standard. There are also two separate rooms that were fitted out for beauty therapy.  

This property would suit potential development, remain a lettable space for local businesses or suit a variety of use changes such as hot food/restaurant or office.


According to our recent measurement survey the premises contain the following approximate net internal area: 417 SQ M (4,487 SQ FT)


Our client is seeking offers over £280,000 for the Heritable interest in the property.


We understand the property has retained its use as a public house and the license is still in place.  The boxing and gymnasium should carry a Class 11 use. Interested parties should make their own enquiries with East Lothian Council Planning Department.
