  • Price: 125000
  • Tenure: Freehold

Freehold commercial property. Traded for 26 years as ‘Sandy’s Barbers’. Some fixtures and fittings still in place. Suitable for a variety of uses. Substantial local residential and commercial development. No business rates payable. 


This well presented Edinburgh commercial property is located on Hutchison Place at the point where it is dissected by Hutchison Avenue. The properties at this point are built round a central grassed area, a nice feature amongst a densely populated residential backdrop. Hutchison Place stretches from Slateford Road (A70) to Hutchison Road in the Slateford area of Edinburgh, just 2 miles to the west of Edinburgh city centre which is linked by an excellent bus service and by the nearby train station. 


The popular Corn Exchange leisure venue is just a short stroll from the property as is a recently developed retail park alongside which features M&S, Aldi and Costa amongst other household names. 


Other nearby Edinburgh suburbs include Gorgie, Longstone, Stenhouse and Craiglockhart. 


This retail unit is formed over the ground floor of a 3 storey property, the upper floors are occupied by residential accommodation. Historically there were 4 pairs of identical commercial properties occupying the ground floor built around the grassed circle, over the years many of these have been converted for residential use.  


The frontage has 2 large display windows either side of a centrally positioned recessed entrance. There is plentiful free parking directly outside and in the surrounding areas. 


Our client has owned and operated Sandy’s Barbers in this property for over 26 years, during which time it was one of the busiest and most well-known shops of this type in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.  


He has only recently ceased trading due to ill health and has reluctantly placed the property on the market for sale. There is undoubtedly scope for it to continue as a barbers/hairdressers due to there still being a demand for this type of business in the area but the unit would also be suitable for other retail use or conversion to residential or office use subject to relevant permission being granted. 


The shop is still kitted out as a barbers and is very well presented throughout, please contact the agent directly for any further information
