Former Foodstore Extending to 246 sq m (2,650 sq ft) with Possible Alternative Uses, Subject to Planning. Site Area 0.17 Acre


Earlston is an historic market town in the Scottish Borders with a resident population of approximately 1,800 persons. Situated just off the A68, which links Edinburgh (33 miles north) and Northumbria to the South. Neighbouring towns include Melrose (6 miles) Galashiels (10 miles) and Kelso (12 miles away).

Station Road is the first right hand turn off the High Street (A6105) and the premises sit in a prominent location on the east side of the street, just before the industrial estate.

Neighbouring land uses include High Street shops, residences, the Earlston Primary School, as well as commercial and industrial units.


The property consists of a detached single storey building on land totalling 705 sq.m. (0.17 acres) Previously used as a foodstore the building has display windows covering the majority of the north elevation and a mixture of windowless brick, render and sandstone walls on the remaining elevations. Land immediately to the north of the unit was previously used for customer parking, but is not included in the sale and although pedestrian access is still possible to the unit’s existing front door, new vehicular access / parking arrangements may have to be made to the rear of the building. The land to the rear of the building is currently overgrown but could potentially be used for car parking after enabling works.

Internally the subjects are set out with clear sales space in the front shop and an office, fire exit, store and cold store accommodation to the rear. WC and kitchen facilities are provided off the front sales area. The front shop has a concrete floor and suspended ceiling (3m head-height) incorporating lighting units. The rear of the unit has a head-height of 3.4 m to the underside of the suspended florescent lights. There are air handling units to the rear of the building that provide air-conditioning. Alternative uses of commercial, industrial or perhaps residential are possible, subject to all necessary planning consents.
