Dalry Road is a principal route leading from Gorgie Road to Edinburgh’s West End and Haymarket districts.
It is a busy and popular, mixed-use area comprising commercial and residential properties. Haymarket is undergoing significant investment and transformation as evidenced by tHe Haymarket development, which is around 10 minutes’ walk from the subjects.
The property itself is prominently situated on the corner of Downfield Place and Dalry Road. Metered parking is available nearby and there is regular public transport connections in the immediate vicinity, including a tram stop at Haymarket Station.
Nearby occupiers to the property include Bensons Bar, Ladbrokes, 176 Café and Lidl.
The subjects comprise a corner unit forming part of a 5 storey, traditional tenement building of stone construction.
It is arranged over ground and basement and occupied for the purposes of a Turkish social club. Access is via a wooden and glazed entrance door with a generous return frontage. The ground floor comprises the social club with kitchenette and WC, whilst the basement provides generous storage accommodation.
Subject to securing the necessary planning consent, the premises would lend themselves to a residential conversion. As our indicative CGI images show, a 2-bed flat could be formed with an open living room and kitchen, shower room/WC with a spiral stair providing access to the basement featuring a games room and breakfast bar. The ground floor extends to approximately 60 sq m with a further 51 sq m in the basement.
The elevations currently conceal four window openings with outlook onto a prominent corner plot within 10 minutes’ walk of the busy Haymarket district.
