An imposing late Victorian mansion which operated initially as the Whiting Bay Hotel and most recently a nursing home trading as Cooriedoon, in Whiting Bay on the Isle of Arran, has been brought to the market by joint agents Glasgow and Edinburgh based solicitors, Watermans, and DM Hall, at offers over £650,000.
The agents say that the property has “outstanding potential and, subject to permissions, could be converted to a hotel, holiday lets, a bed and breakfast/Airbnb, an aparthotel, a guest house, or even a wedding venue/event space”.
The property’s accommodation is arranged over three floors and consists of 27 bedrooms, accessible by a lift or stairs, some with en-suite facilities. In addition the property has a number of other rooms previously used as communal/staff spaces, including living rooms, two kitchens, lounge rooms, a dining room, staff rooms, offices, and various store rooms, a laundry, and WCs, with the public rooms and kitchens offering potential for conversion.
Anthony Zdanowicz, a commercial property Associate based in the Ayr office of DM Hall, who, together with Watermans, is overseeing the sale, said, “Arran property is in huge demand and Cooriedoon’s configuration would also allow for conversion into apartments and two terraced houses.
“The opportunities are almost endless and the new owner will have creative scope to elevate this beautiful property and use it to its full potential’.
