The town of Airdrie in North Lanarkshire is situated approximately 15 miles east of Glasgow City Centre and, with the neighbouring town of Coatbridge, it forms part of the Monklands conurbation with a population of approximately 90,000. Airdrie has good accessibility to the M8 motorway situated to the south and the subject property is within a mile of Airdrie train station which has frequent regular services east and west to Edinburgh and Glasgow Queen Street.
Airdrie town centre, with its retail, restaurant/bar and leisure amenities, is located just over a mile to the south. The property is situated a short distance
west of Commonhead Street which is a main route leading to Airdrie Town Centre. The surrounding area is largely residential in nature and there have been
notable flatted development/conversion schemes at neighbouring properties to the west and north. The subjects overlook public open space and both primary
and secondary schools are within a 10 minute walk of the property.
The subjects comprise a site extending to approximately 0.372 ha (0.92 acre) incorporating two former care homes, Arran House and Skye View Care Centre. There is adjacent garden grounds and parking facilities providing 15 car spaces off the access road from Arran Drive. The two buildings are more particularly described as undernoted:-

12 bedrooms (all with ensuite toilet facilities), administration office/reception, day room with its own pantry/kitchenette plus ancillary store, toilets and assisted bathing facilities.

We have attached layout plans showing the accommodation described above, however these are not to scale and are provided for indicative purposes only.
This building is located at the rear/northmost section of the site and it closed as a care home facility in 2012. The main building is of stone construction with pitched slated roofs. The property has a series of single and two storey extensions which are steel framed, constructed of concrete and have flat roofs.
Given the property has been vacant and unused for a considerable period, it is in poor condition necessitating either complete redevelopment or refurbishment.
We do have indicative layout plans of Arran House which can be made available on request.
