This lovely 3 bedroom property sits in the little village of Ardler in the heart of rural East Perthshire.  The building is a modern extension of traditional stone cottages, which are currently used as a business, The Tavern (see below).  The property is completely self contained, but is being sold together with the business, which could be used as such, or converted back into private accommodation.  The property is on two floors, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and the kitchen on the ground floor and the en suite bedroom and living room in the upper floor.  The building is very well insulated, has gas central heating, a cosy log fire and solar panels. There is a large garden to the rear with ample parking, a garage, several sheds and a wood store.

Location: Ardler is a quiet little village set well back from the A94 and approximately halfway between Coupar Angus and Meigle both of which are about 2 miles distant.  Here there are a good choice of shops, Primary Schools and other amenities.   The busy town of Blairgowrie lies just 7 miles to the north where there are Supermarkets, Sports Centre and High School.  East Perthshire is popular with visitors and locals alike coming to enjoy the many sporting activities, particularly golf, fishing, skiing and hill walking.  This is a very pretty corner of rural Perthshire with an abundance of open countryside to enjoy.  Perth and Dundee are just 15 minutes away; Edinburgh & Aberdeen are about an hour’s drive.

The Business: The Tavern is included in the sale or lease of this property and presents an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to develop a successful Hospitality business.

Currently trading as a Bar with Food and open only for limited hours during the weekend.  The Tavern is modern, clean and very well equipped and carries a full liquor licence.  The food and service is highly thought of and when open, attracts business from near and far.

The property comprises of a main entrance (6m x 2.3m) from the rear car park, with a commercial kitchen and customer toilets leading off from here.

The Bar/Restaurant (13.3m x 5m) has been converted from traditional, white washed cottages to very high standards.  The principal seating/dining areas are arranged under the windows opposite the Bar.  At the far end is a large red brick fireplace with attractive log burning stove. The Bar is solid timber built with wooden gantry and drinks display.  Behind the bar is a well equipped cellar.

A further room to the side of the Bar (5.3m x 4.8m) is currently used as a pool room, but could be used for additional dining, giving a potential total of 40 covers, with a further 16 covers on the patio area outside. 

The premises have well equipped kitchens, good storage and high quality toilets.  It feels fresh, clean and inviting.

The current turnover is quite modest due to the restricted opening times and emphasis on wet sales.  However it is felt that if the business was open for six or seven days a week and changed to becoming more food orientated it could be much more profitable.  With good marketing and refreshed signage, it should enjoy a very healthy turnover and gross profit, depending on the style of catering offered.

With Perth, Dundee, Blairgowrie and Forfar nearby the business could easily develop a regular clientele, seeking out good food, friendly service and a warm ambiance. This business could deliver all this with the right input and direction. The business comes with generous, high quality and family friendly accommodation, which is clearly separate from the business.  This opportunity should appeal to those wishing to develop a Hospitality business of their own in an idyllic, rural location.

Viewing: By appointment only.

Entry: By negotiation.
