Property Details

Rare to market development opportunity
Rare to the market is the derelict former church located in the picturesque coastal town of Dunbar, around 30 miles east of the capital city. The historic building is the former Abbey Church of Scotland dating back to 1850, designed by architect Thomas Hamilton. Despite being a beloved landmark within the local community, the former church has remained empty for decades. The building itself is made of red sandstone with internal stone steps leading up to the mezzanine level. There are many original features left behind such as original stained-glass windows, the roof has been completely removed. This is fantastic project for a builder offering great potential for a variety of possible uses subject to obtaining the relevant planning. Please note this is a category B listed building.

Unsafe properties
Unsafe properties are evidently in a condition that poses a serious risk to the health or safety of occupants or visitors, or where the way the home is marketed suggests it is unsuitable for occupation in that condition. There is little point in a condition survey being undertaken on a home that is unfit for occupation in any case and is being advertised as such.

The former church is located in the heart of the highly sought after town of Dunbar. The town offers superb stretches of beaches, coastal walks and two excellent golf courses, one of which is a championship course. This location offers a fantastic variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, local businesses, leisure facilities including a sports complex, indoor swimming and fully equipped fitness centre. Dunbar has its own main line railway station providing regular train services to and from Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh. The A1 is only a few minutes’ drive away offering excellent road links to Edinburgh and beyond.
