The historic and attractive Cathcart House at Cowan's Corner in Greenock is set across five storeys and is a Grade B listed building available to buy or let at the heart of Greenock town centre.

Formerly offices, the site would be suitable for a range of alternative uses including hotel, gym, café, restaurant, serviced offices and residential (subject to planning). Consideration would be given to letting the property on a floor-by-floor basis. The owner has recently secured Class 3 consent over the ground floor and basement. 

Internally, the subjects currently offer flexible floor-plates and currently provide a mixture of cellular and open-plan accommodation with the ability to be made completely open-plan. The owner has invested heavily in preparing the ground floor and also in replacing the windows throughout the building.
