About this property


    Laverock House is a substantial, detached property comprising a traditional stone built property with two modern wings to the east and west. The property is arranged over ground and first floor and is currently in operation as a Care Home (Class 8). It extends to approximately 4,915 sq. ft. (457 sq. m.)

    The accommodation currently comprises:

    Ground floor: Entrance hall, lounge, garden room/dining room, kitchen, utility room, six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate W.C.

    First floor: Office, one bedroom with en suite shower room, three bedrooms with en suite WC's, four further bedrooms, bathroom and two shower rooms.

    The house is sat on a large plot surrounded by a stone wall which extends to approximately 0.37 acres (0.15 ha). There is a private driveway and parking area to the front of the plot with space for a number of cars. The property also benefits from attractive mature, landscaped gardens with a southerly and westerly aspect.

    Laverock House is bounded to the north, west and south by residential properties and to the east by Laverockbank Road and Starbank Park beyond.

    The property is currently in care home use however it is potentially suitable for alternative uses. Potential uses include redevelopment of the property into one large family home or subdivision into a number of smaller residences. This will be subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

I think this is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a rarely available detached house in the sought after Trinity area and I could see this being returned to one exceptional family home, subject to the necessary consents.
