This rarely available and high potential Gourock property has been made available to let within a unique town centre location. With ample car parking, the subjects have been granted a change of use (22/0092/IC) to become a bar/restaurant as well as an outdoor seating area.
A former long-standing photography studio, the subjects are under new ownership and provide a range of internal rooms, as well as a substantial conservatory and outdoor area, which could be further developed into use.
The successful planning application has seen the Kempock Street premises given permission for 88 seats in total, with 38 internal seats, a further 18 in the conservatory area and an outdoor area with eight tables.
Located directly below popular cafe Good Brew (formerly Flava) and The River Restaurant, the location lends itself to becoming a complimentary bistro or brasserie to further complement the existing range of local eateries.
The subjects were previously two residential dwellings, which have been converted to create one property in the 1970s. Entry is from lower Kempock Street, through the conservatory, which is in good condition but there is an opportunity to modernise.
Internally, there's a good-sized reception and kitchen areas, as well as internal storage and welfare facilities. To the west of the property is three large rooms that would provide a range of options for new occupants, as well as a fully fitted bathroom area.
There is a range of on-street parking for staff and visitors, ranging from 1-3 hours (disc scheme) and all-day parking (lower Kempock Street car park).
Gourock is a thriving town, bucking the retail challenges nationally, with a high demand for units like this in and around the Kempock Street area. As a result, this property is expected to be popular and likely to be let quickly.
