Centrally Located Flats Within Converted B Listed Building
Coupar Angus is situated on the Perth to Forfar A94 lying some 14 miles northwest of Dundee and 14 miles northeast of Perth. Blairgowrie lies 4 miles to the northwest. A small town in an attractive and rich agricultural area, it lies on the banks of the River Isla and the word ‘Angus’ was added to the settlements name to distinguish it from Cupar in Fife. Coupar Angus provides services for local communities including a Primary School, surgery, a variety of shopping, sports facilities and other amenities. A wider range of facilities can be found in Blairgowrie including secondary schooling. The location is well placed for commuting to Perth and Dundee. The property is located at the junction of Calton Street and Commercial Street.
Cumberland Barracks, formerly known as Yeomanry Barracks, is a three storey L shaped building, constructed of red rubble with white sandstone dressings lying under pitched slate roofing. It is of historical interest – originally built between 1745 and 1766 to be used by the British Army during the suppression of the Jacobite Rebellions, ending centuries of clan warfare in the Highlands. The building contains five one-bedroomed flats and one bedsit and, we understand, was at least partly occupied up until 2020. The Council have completed various refurbishment and maintenance projects on the building over the years, most recently replacing the coping stones and re-coating the building’s exterior. The building is currently vacant. There is an entrance at the front of the building which serves as a front door for one of the ground floor flats which also benefits from a rear door. The remaining ground floor flat is served by its own separate door to the rear of the building. The flats on the first and second floors are reached via a staircase also accessed from the rear. There is on street parking available and there is also a Council car park located to the rear of the building. All flats except for No1 consist of living room, bedroom, fitted kitchen units, bathroom or shower room, electric heating and double glazed sash and case windows. Flat 1 is slightly smaller comprising a bedsit arrangement i.e. living room/bedroom, fitted kitchen and shower room. Being centrally located allows for easy access to local amenities and the surrounding road network. These dwellings provide for easily maintained, flexible living environments and offer a good opportunity for a buy to let project or refurbishment and sale to first time buyers. All rights reserved.
