Shepherd brings significant landholding in Dumfries to market for sale as redevelopment opportunity

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is bringing to market the former Penman Engineering site at Locharbriggs, Dumfries as large industrial premises or a redevelopment opportunity for sale.

The substantial industrial property was originally constructed as part of a wider WWII airbase and subsequently operated as a manufacturing factory.

Located within a mixed commercial and residential district, 3.5 miles northeast of Dumfries town centre, the secure 14-acre site occupies a prominent and accessible position on the eastern side of the A701 trunk road connecting Dumfries to the M74 motorway.

The existing accommodation is split between two detached former aircraft hangers, both of which have been extended to provide the present accommodation. The site is generally level lying with tarmac surfaced internal roads and yard space together with large areas of green amenity land. The frontage onto the A701 extends to around 180m.

Fraser Carson, associate in Shepherd’s Dumfries office, said: “We are delighted to have been instructed to assist with the disposal of this rare opportunity and expect strong levels of enquiries from those considering both residential and mixed-use projects.

“The site has played an important employment role over the years, and it will be good to see it redeveloped to once again serve the local community. Alternatively, the property is capable of continued commercial operation and is suited to a variety of uses, subject to Local Authority consent.”

Purchase offers are invited. Interested parties should contact the selling agent on tel 01387 264333 or 0141 406 6363.
