Formerly For Newborns, Plans For Newbuild? Possibly.
For Sale – Offers Over £55,000
A former local maternity clinic for sale – with picturesque setting and riverside views, sited within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
Situated in a traffic free and idyllic spot overlooking the River Teith and within 5 minutes level walking distance of Callander town centre, the former clinic offers an interesting development opportunity.
The property which is south facing, currently has Class 2 commercial use (permitted to Class 1). Though it also has significant potential for conversion to a residential dwelling, subject to planning permission. There has already been a planning application granted, but this is currently in a lapsed status.
Alternatively Unique Property Bulletin readers have favoured mixed use premises where a house, plus a place to work from home can be created (subject to the ubiquitous planning rules again, and obtaining the relevant agreement for any alternate use). This particular property could well suit that ideal lifestyle – to live and work from a beautiful location with a separate work space, and a commute from home to work in less than 30 seconds.
The original planning permission for redevelopment to two residential properties was lodged in 2010 and approved in 2011 (this permission has now time-lapsed and would need renewal).
Local authority planning website and permission detail: Click Here. Please note: the original permission, granted on 15th September 2011 had a timeline for commencement of 3 years from that date. Consequently it has now lapsed. There is extensive detail within the weblink provided in this paragraph, and whilst Unique Property Bulletin don’t believe there would be too many obstacles to renewing the permission, readers are advised to study the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park submissions that we have given the link for, and rely on their own due diligence.
We are advised that more recently the National Park have indicated their ‘in principle’ support of the plans for a proposed conversion which would see a stunning contemporary property. The plans have been specifically designed for the luxury holiday rental market and a national holiday rental agency have confirmed their interest in the marketing and management of the proposed property at a peak rate of some £1000 per week.
Regarded as the capital of the National Park, Callander is a popular and busy town with a strong tourist based economy, resulting in high demand in the holiday rental market. It offers an excellent selection of local shops and restaurants and good communication links to other favoured tourist areas of the Park and to the towns of Dunblane and Stirling.
View From The Bridge – Nearby To The Clinic, South Church Street, Callander
One of the charming aspects of this former maternity clinic is that it was utilised by the local nurse in the town to meet with the new mums, weigh babies, give vaccinations etc. There are a good few people still living in Callander who have spent some time in the Clinic in their younger days! Although it has not been used, as a clinic for at least 10 years.
Given its picturesque riverside and traffic free location it is an ideal renovation project, particularly as a holiday home. And particularly as a holiday home for keen anglers as immediately outside the property is the “Black Hole”, this is a famous fishing pool of the Teith, a hidden gem of the fishing world. See the mentions of Black Pool here..
Location: The Clinic, South Church Street, Callander, FK17 8BN.
