Conveniently Cheap Properties That Really Take The P!SS

24 Jun

You won’t have to spend too many “pennies” to pick up one of these former public toilets which are soon to be sold at auction.  Former loos may be an unusual property choice – but they can offer an array of alternative uses for a very cheap price tag!

 

FORMER PUBLIC CONVENIENCE, BRODICK ROAD, KIRKCALDY, KY2 6EY

Guide price: £5,000

This former public convenience of brick construction and a flat roof may not look like much: the building is just 8.84m long and 4.26m wide.  However, that’s still 61.5 sqm (662 sq.ft) which as toilet sizes go is pretty big – big enough in fact for the council to grant permission for the site to be converted to a hot food takeaway.  Usefully, the property (from it’s former use) has electricity, water and drainage connected which is pretty handy if you’re going to run a hot food takeaway.  Large Kebab anyone?

Guide price: £5,000

This public convenience is of a smaller variety and has overall dimensions of 7.27m x 4.04m (29.3 sq m.). As you would expect from a former  toilet; mains water, drainage and electric are on site.  I’m impressed by the auctioneers creative ideas for the potential future use of this site (Subject to planning) current thoughts include: a base for a taxi operator, a pet grooming shop or a store – I’m thinking the name could be “Spend a Penny!”

Former Public Toilets, The Bus Depot, Idlewells Shopping Centre, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire

Guide price: £5-10,000

toilet for sale

As convenient locations go – these public conveniences are situated very conveniently indeed: adjacent to the entrance of a shopping centre – which is almost as convenient as public conveniences could get…apart from those situated to the rear!

These former public toilets comprise two blocks and are suitable for a variety of uses (STP).  The internal floor area is a substantial 94.2 sq m (1,1014 sq ft) and forms part of the bus depot at Idlewells Shopping Centre.  There’s a whole range of decent commercial nearby including Specsavers, Boots and the Card Factory – so this could be a great chance to pick up a commercial unit for a fraction of the High Street price.

And if you’re wondering what to do with this former public loo, Savills have helpfully used a CGI image to show how the units could look when converted:
