Property Details

Business Opportunity
New to auction is this fantastic business opportunity in the Stirlingshire village of Cowie. The property comprises 1.5 storey detached building with former hot food takeaway on the ground floor, with separate owner’s accommodation on the ground and attic floors. The commercial element extends to approximately 100 sq. metres (1,076 sq. feet), with front service/seating area and, to the rear, equipped food preparation area, store and WC. Further benefits include a patio/parking area to the front. The owner’s accommodation is entered from the ground floor with one bedroom and storage, with the upper level offering open plan lounge/kitchen, two further bedrooms and large family bathroom with over bath shower.

This family business has enjoyed strong local custom for around 50 years as “Mac’s Café”, but has not traded for a couple of years. The current owner has decided to retire from the business which presents a great opportunity for a new owner to revive and build the business, with a number of options available for the residential element including owner’s residence or rental. We understand the commercial element has existing use class as hot food takeaway, but due to the non-trading status the current permissions should be checked with Stirling Council Planning Department. The currently published Rateable Value is £12,600 which means that some degree of rates relief may be available under the Small Business Bonus Scheme.

The property is being sold as seen, with no warranty offered for any of the equipment in situ. This is sure to attract investors looking for a combination of commercial and residential rental units, and would also interest those looking for an exciting owner/operator business opportunity. Early expression of interest is essential.
