DUE TO the forthcoming relocation of the long-established Dansarena dance school, Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is marketing its studio space and performance venue in Ayr for sale.
Located on Fort Street in the heart of Ayr town centre, adjacent to the new Ayr Grammar Primary School and within easy walking distance of the High Street, the attractive and imposing ‘B’ Listed former church occupies a substantial plot formed in stone and slate. Much of the original architectural detailing both internally and externally remains intact.
Internal accommodation comprises, at ground floor, entrance vestibule, office, lounge/waiting area, café, dance studio, secondary dance studio, ante room, changing rooms, kitchen, laundry, W.C. facilities and various storerooms, and, at first floor, a main hall, secondary hall and storeroom. A boiler room is in the basement.
Steven Bolland, owner of Dansarena Studios said: “While we have thoroughly enjoyed operating from Fort Street, we feel that to take the business forward a move to new premises would be of benefit.
“We are excited about the future and will keep our many clients informed about the changes planned over the coming months.”
Shepherd Partner Kevin Bell added: “While the building falls under planning of Class 11 use (Assembly & Leisure), it may be a suited to a variety of alternative uses subject to gaining appropriate statutory consents. Interested parties should make their own enquiries with South Ayrshire Council.
“Our clients’ preference is for clean offers, although they may consider offers conditional upon planning consent for change of use. A closing date may be set and interested parties are urged to note formal interest.”
Offers over £350,000 are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on tel 01292 267987.
