Shepherd markets mixed-use property with development potential on North Coast 500 trail for sale

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is bringing to market a mixed-use property with development potential on the prominent North Coast 500 trail for sale.

Located on Main Street, Lybster, just off the A99, 13 miles south of Wick, the property features three refurbished buildings spread across 7,345 sq ft providing workshop, studio, and residential accommodation on a one-acre site.

The Alastair Pilkington Studio has been configured to provide four workshops, office accommodation, toilets, café, and prep kitchen while the Old School House has been converted into a five-bedroom accommodation block with ancillary laundry quarters and lean-to single storey extension.

The timber frame lodge, meanwhile, has been configured to provide open plan living room/kitchenette, three-double bedrooms, a shower room, and a disabled wet room with a paddock to the rear.

Rory Fraser, from the Inverness office of Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, said: “Previously operated by Northlands Creative as a contemporary glass production facility with living accommodation, there are various avenues that new owners could explore to enhance the existing business, including development potential, subject to appropriate planning consents.

“Known for its stunning coastal scenery, white sandy beaches, rugged mountains, remote fishing villages, hidden gems, and a wealth of unforgettable experiences, the North Coast 500 is deemed one of the world’s most beautiful road trips and, as such, we anticipate much interest in this mixed-use property with development potential.”

Offers over £500,000 are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on tel 01463 712239.
