Pips Coffee House sits within Ancaster Square, just off Callander’s main street, and extends to approx 250 square metres (2690 square feet) over three levels. The ground floor is devoted to the formerly trading coffee shop and offers an extensive trading area entered from the square to the front, service area, full commercial kitchen to the rear, customer toilet facilities, and a courtyard area accessed from kitchen. The first floor offers residential accommodation comprising large front facing lounge area, two bedrooms, fully fitted dining kitchen, with a storeroom/office and shower room on the half landing. On the second floor, overlooking the rear of the property, there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

This is a unique opportunity with a number of possible different development options, this was previously two properties that have been combined together. The two staircases have been retained and are accessed from the ground floor – one stairway leading to first and second floors, with the other to the first floor only. The lounge on the first floor has been opened up to create one large space but could easily be subdivided again to allow two residential units to be re-formed with separate staircase access. The commercial element currently occupying the ground floor could readily be brought back into use as a coffee shop, restaurant, etc, or could be incorporated within the residential development of the upper floors.

Callander enjoys strong levels of tourist demand, and the various project options offered will allow developers a great opportunity to tap into this demand with commercial trade, holiday accommodation, long term rental and self-contained residential units for resale amongst the end use possibilities. Early viewing is essential to fully appreciate the potential offered.
