LOT 7 MAIN STREET, (opposite Collenan Cottages), By LOANS, Nr TROON, KA10 7HS SOLD FOR £86,000

Former Office/Storage Premises requiring complete Refurbishment/Redevelopment – Circa 126 sq.m.(1,356 sq. ft) on 0.067 Ha (0.165 Acre).


Troon is a seaside town in South Ayrshire, with a resident population of circa 15,000. Located some 9 miles from Ayr and 34 miles from Glasgow, the town enjoys both good road and rail links and it lies just 3 miles from Prestwick Airport.


From the A77 (north of Prestwick Airport) take the A78 towards Irvine/Troon. At the next roundabout, follow the A78 north towards Irvine/Greenock. Bear left onto the B746 (Loans) and A759 Troon Road. Go straight ahead at the small roundabout in Loans and continue on the A759, passing the entrance to Taylor Wimpey’s Princess Gate/Queen’s Court developments. The property is on the left, opposite a small group of residential properties known a “Collenan Cottages” and just beyond a bus stop. Grid Ref: – NS3417432699.


The property comprises a detached single storey building fronting onto Main Street (A759). The structure is at least partly of timber frame construction with an external cladding of brick, under what is believed to be a timber frame (pitched) roof clad with tiles. There are double leaf timber doors in the north gable of the building. The ground surrounding the property is overgrown and includes some areas of concrete, one of which might have been the base for a garage or store. The property is bounded to the A759 by a heavily overgrown wall, which includes an entrance gap sufficiently wide to allow vehicles to access the site. The other three boundaries are defined by timber post and wire fencing. We understand that the building is served by a septic tank which is located in the field to the west of the property.

The building currently provides a small office/reception area, a larger open plan office, a storage area, kitchenette and toilet. The office accommodation accounts for circa 60 sq.m. (645 sq.ft), the store area 41 sq.m. (441 sq.ft) with the balance of the space occupied by the kitchenette, toilet and a further small store. The property is in poor condition and has suffered from vandalism. Following comprehensive refurbishment, the building would provide handy office/storage space, with useful ground for parking etc. Alternatively, the property might be suitable for residential development – see Planning below.


The footprint of the building extends to circa 126 sq.m.(1,356 sq. ft) approx.


0.067 Ha (0.165 Acre) approx.


In November 2014 planning application 14/01140/APP for change of use, alterations and extension to office/store to form a dwellinghouse was approved. It is assumed this consent has lapsed. The land which adjoins the property has approval for residential development and has been the subject of numerous applications. The most recent is 19/00701/MSCM – Approval of matters specified in conditions of planning permission in principle 17/00814/FURM incorporating amended proposals for 63 market housing (including 20 additional units), erection of one shop unit (Class 1) and erection of 52 affordable homes and associated roads, footpaths and landscaping which was approved in January 2020.
