A deceptively large corner terraced property occupying the ground floor of an attractive two storey plus attic level building which is of traditional sandstone construction under a pitched slate roof.
The building has a cornered façade to Buccleuch Place and Gladstone Street with excellent display frontage. Internally, the premises have been refurbished in recent years to include plasterboard lining of external walls and re-configuration of the layout. They have recently been redecorated and are presented in good order throughout. Minor localised dampness was noted to the rear wall of the rear shop.
Windows comprise timber framed display units. Solid floors are provided throughout.
No. 2 Gladstone Street is within the ‘West End’, a relatively popular residential area of Hawick.
It is in a prominent position with curved frontage to the junction of Buccleuch Place, Myreslaw Green and Gladstone Street within the popular ‘West End’ of Hawick.
Hawick is located in the Teviot valley at the River Teviot’s confluence with Slitrig Water. The town has the largest population of any settlement in the Scottish Borders with a population of 13,810 according to the 2019 Mid-year Population Estimate compiled by National Records of Scotland, a decline of 7.5% in comparison with the population recorded at the 2001 Census. The town serves a relatively large rural hinterland.
The accommodation comprises:
Front shop formerly four separate offices, further triangular shaped retail area/ office to the east, Tea preparation area and WC
The building has been measured in accordance with the RICS Code of measuring Practice to the following areas:
Net Internal Area 87.17 sq m (938 sq ft)
In Terms of Zone A 68.88 sq m (741 sq ft)
E & 0 Measurements taken with a laser measure
These premises are situated within the Hawick Conservation Area but do not appear to be Listed.
Established Use is presumed to be Class 1 (Retail) of the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) (Scotland) Order 1997, but the premises would also appear well suited to Class 2 (Professional Services).
This accommodation is extremely versatile offering scope for up to five separate offices with considerable flexibility for a range of alternative applications.
In a position such as this, the premises may suit use as a convenience store, hair salon, beauticians, treatment/ therapy suites, or offices.
The premises may also offer scope to conversion to residential use, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
