Substantial Victorian family home over 3 levels to include profitable restaurant business. Same owners for last 17 years – retirement sale. Profitable business with growing turnover. Would be ideal for hands on ownership/family management. High profile trading location on the A84 in the centre of Callander. Well presented restaurant premises offering 67 covers over two separate areas. Full commercial kitchen. Class 3 cooking consent. Premises license.
The property comprises an impressive Victorian townhouse, stone built, retaining many original exterior features including pillar doorway as well as rooftop ballustrade. This is a striking example of maintained Victorian design housing a superb family home over 3 levels as well as a profitable restaurant business.
As the name suggests, the Old Bank Restaurant was formerly trading and operating as a Bank (built in 1870s) before conversion to a hotel in the 1960s and latterly a restaurant. The property internally retains many of the original architectural features including the high ceilings and large picture frame windows to the front. The restaurant and coffee house opens up to a large open plan area to accommodate 50 covers. The room is dominated by a real coal fire with brick mantel surround.
Upon entry to the main reception hallway the left hand doorway leads into an additional dining area to accommodate 17. This is used for a number of difference scenarios including private parties and functions as well as overflow dining in the busy summer months. The second restaurant area is laid out similarly in style to the main restaurant. This area provides real opportunity for new owners to perhaps include a small intimate bistro especially in the evenings.
One of the most attractive aspects of the purchase of the Old Bank Restaurant is the sizable owners house which accompanies the business. The owners house is accessed from street level leading through an entrance vestibule with private doorway leading into a ground floor hallway. The size and spaciousness of the owners accommodation would certainly suit a large or extended family. The opportunity gives prospective purchasers to run a profitable business but also live in a beautiful Victorian townhouse property.
