LOT 3 TAIN FILLING STATION, KNOCKBRECK ROAD, TAIN IV19 1BW, SOLD POST

Redevelopment Opportunity – Former Petrol Filling Station – 0.08 Ha (0.204 Acre)

LOCATION

Tain is busy and attractive town on the east coast of Easter Ross. It lies approx. 33 miles north of Inverness and 9 miles south of Dornoch. Its current population is just under 4,000 and it has two primary schools and a secondary school. It sits just to the east of the A9 trunk road and is also on the far north train line. There is a lot to do in the area including a choice of excellent golf courses, a local history museum, and the Glenmorangie Distillery Visitors Centre. It is an area of great natural beauty with plenty of walks and wildlife to enjoy. The property occupies a prominent location on Knockbreck Road which is the main road into the town centre from the A9 coming from the south, opposite the junction with Gower Street. Adjoining properties are a mix of residential and commercial and the site would lend itself to redevelopment for either residential or commercial use.

DESCRIPTION

The property comprises a former petrol filling station on a fairly regularly shaped site which slopes very gently down from the main road. There is a kiosk building which is of a detached breezeblock construction with a pitched concrete tile roof. It has a timber door and timber framed windows with single glazing most of which are currently boarded over. Internally there is a front shop area, two stores, a toilet and a small tea prep area. In front of the building is steel canopy supported by two metal columns. It is understood that the former fuel tanks are located below the ground level and have been decommissioned by making them inert. The site extends to 0.204 Acre as shown on the attached plan and the majority of the unbuilt area is covered with either tarmac or lockblock paving. A right of access exists over the ground adjacent to the South East boundary which is used for access to properties to the rear. All rights reserved.
