Redevelopment Opportunity in Town Centre Location – Circa 9,585 sq.ft in total.


Wick is the administrative town for the Caithness area and lies on the east coast of northern Scotland. Thurso is approximately 20 miles to the West and Inverness lies approximately 103 miles south. The property is located in a good trading location on the main road through Wick Town Centre. The property is situated on the corner of the High Street and Whitechapel Road.


The property has a total internal area of circa 890 sq.m. (9,585sq.ft) and comprises a 3 storey, traditional stone building with extensive attic and basement space, a 3 storey extension at the rear with a further storey and half storage area, together with areas to the rear which comprised private car parking and private garden areas. The two three storey buildings use a half landing arrangement to allow for a height difference between the floors. Previously the property operated as a café and take away shop on the ground floor with a commercial bakery in the basement. The second and third floors were used as residential accommodation. The rear extension contained letting bedrooms. There are entrance doors to the front onto High Street or at the rear from the private car park. The main stair serving all levels is located at the front of the property. Additional service stairs are located at the rear providing access between the basement and first floor service areas.

SVA Property Auctions have not inspected the premises recently and we understand that the property requires renovations and repairs. It is also clear that the property requires reconfiguration to maximise its potential.
