Vacant Category C Listed Office / Retail Premises, Centrally Located. Potential for Alternative Uses.


Kirkcaldy is Fife’s second biggest town, with a resident population of circa 50,000. The property is very centrally located in the vennel running between the High Street and the Esplanade and is situated between the Kirkcaldy Leisure Centre swimming pool and the Mercat Shopping Centre. The property stands within the northern, pedestrianised section of Tolbooth Street, close to the entrance to the multi storey carpark attached to the Mercat Shopping Centre. Alternatively access to the vennel, from the High Street, is beside the Marks and Spencer store. Neighbouring traders include restaurants, offices and retail traders.


This is a C Listed building, of stone construction behind whitewashed render. There is a pitched and slated roof to Tolbooth Street and a single storey, flat roof extension to the rear.There are two entrances providing flexibility as to how the accommodation is used and enabling the building to be split into ground floor and first floor suites.Alternatively, there is an internal link between the floors, which allows the premises to be employed as a single self-contained unit.


The ground floor is currently set out as an office and has one principal, open plan room and a second partitioned office, kitchen, ancillary storage and WCs.The non-loadbearing partitions offer flexibility as to how this space is used in the future, therefore retail and restaurant uses are all potentially possible, subject to the necessary consents being secured.

The first floor is accessed by a narrow, carpeted stairway directly from a separate doorway fronting onto Tolbooth Street. There is a main office with two windows to the street, with a second separate office off, WC and tea prep facilities.
