Centrally Located Vacant Retail Unit and Office Investment £6,500 p.a.


Kirkcaldy (pop circa 50,000) is on the north side of the Firth of Forth some 13 miles west of Dunfermline, 11 miles from the M90 and 15 miles from the Forth Road Bridge. It is the main regional centre for the surrounding area with a catchment area estimated at 150,000. The town has a good range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities and it benefits from excellent transport links to the central Scotland motorway network via the A92. The property is also close to railway and bus station links. Situated in the pedestrianised area of the High Street, the property is located in a prominent position within the heart of the town centre. Nearby occupiers include Marks & Spencer, WH Smith, Debenhams, New Look, Costa Coffee, Waterstones and a number of independent traders.


The property comprises a two storey modern brick built building under a flat roof, with retail over the ground floor and a self contained office unit on the first floor. Internally, the ground floor retail accommodation comprises a spacious sales area with ample storage to the rear and staff room and toilets at first floor level. The unit has glazed full height display windows and benefits from timber flooring, suspended ceiling and fluorescent lighting. There may be potential in dividing this unit up to provide more flexible, useful space. The first floor is office space, accessed separately via an entrance and stair directly from the High Street and is currently occupied by Kirkcaldy 4 All. This unit comprises open plan office, meeting room, two further offices, kitchen and toilets and benefits from carpeting, gas central heating and fluorescent lighting. There is some restricted on street parking available within the vicinity and further parking available within a number of nearby car parks. This is a well placed property within a thriving shopping area with the extensive surrounding office, residential and leisure areas providing local trade.
