For Sale £460,000 - Investment property, Pub, Restaurant
Outstanding water front contemporary bar & bistro operation overlooking Loch Long. Fully redesigned & refurbished property offering bar, restaurant, decking area & boasting stunning loch front views. Highly popular bistro with separate 2-bedroom apartment included in price. Currently operating with tenants as a contemporary Scottish bar & Italian bistro. Truly unique opportunity for owner operator or property investor. Genuine potential to boost trade through various income streams.
Situated on a simply stunning spot overlooking Loch Long within the breath-taking countryside of Argylle & Bute. Located within the village of Ardentinny, which is a short drive north of the popular town of Dunoon on Scotland’s west coast, The Ardentinny Bistro is a most impressive bar & bistro operation. Built on the site of a 17 Century drovers Inn, The Ardentinny Bistro boasts one of the area’s most stunning trading locations with uninterrupted views from the decked dining area to the rear of the property which gives you a sense of almost being on top of the loch.
After taking ownership back in 2011 our clients embarked on a complete redesign and comprehensive refurbishment programme of the former hotel. By splitting the originally property in two fine residential properties (one property of which is available be separate negotiation), quality 2 bed owner’s apartment and bar & bistro, our clients had a blank page and healthy budget to create something truly unique.
The program of works started by taking the property back to almost a bare shell & completely redesigning the interior bar, kitchen, restaurant and adding the truly impressive decking area. With no expense spared on the interior design, quality of fixtures and fittings along with a good eye for detail, The Ardentinny Bistro cannot fail to impressive potential purchasers. From the cosy bar with open log burning fire to the magnifacante restaurant area which gives access via full width French doors to the outside decking area overlooking Loch Long with magnifacante hills & mountains beyond.
The relaxed casual atmosphere that has been created especially within the cosy bar is perfect for the local and wider market which has seen a large amount of inward investment over recent years. By making the most of the stunning loch front location and with the exceptionally high standard achieved throughout the redevelopment of the property, The Ardentinny Bistro represents a truly unique investment opportunity for an owner operator or landlord.
The overall quality achieved throughout the property, coupled with the enviable trading location, arguably makes The Ardentinny Bistro one of the finest privately owned food & wet sale units currently available for sale within Argyll & Bute.
It should be noted that our clients have never operated the business as the property is let to tenants who operate as a contemporary Scottish bar & Italian bistro.
While trading is at a healthy level, by making a small number, yet important changes within the operation, income & profit levels could greatly be increased. With the location of the property, The Ardentinny Bistro is seen as a destination operation where people will take time out to visit from areas such as Dunoon, Glasgow and surrounding towns and villages.
New owner operators could potentially boost income by opening the bar and bistro for the full season and capitalising in the ever growing demand for this type of food lead operation.
However, the property also makes for a solid longer term investment for a property investor. As the property is set to high quality modern standards, any future landlord would benefit from the overall standard of the property and relatively low input required due to the recent development of The Ardentinny Bistro.
In addition, the sale also includes a separate 2-bedroom loch front owner’s apartment. Situated above the business and offering the same high quality of fixtures and fittings as the bistro, the apartment provides an exceptional private living space for a couple or small family.
The Ardentinny Bistro is being offered for sale due to our clients wish to retire.
