Ex-school go­ing un­der ham­mer

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - PUZZLES -

A FOR­MER Kirk­caldy school is back on the mar­ket, three years after it was sold to a prop­erty de­vel­oper.

The old Ab­bot­shall In­fant School on the cor­ner of Ram­say Road will go un­der the ham­mer at an auc­tion in Ed­in­burgh on Septem­ber 13.

It is be­ing sold by Fu­ture Prop­erty Auc­tions with a guide price of £85,000.

The C-listed build­ing is said to of­fer vast po­ten­tial for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment, such as hous­ing.

The auc­tion­eers have also sug­gested a res­i­den­tial care home, of­fices or re­tail as al­ter­na­tive uses.

The site was bought by Ed­in­burgh-based Brel Prop­er­ties in 2014 for just over £70,000.

Spec­u­la­tion was high at that time that part of it was to be used for nurs­ery pro­vi­sion and the re­main­der for hous­ing, but nei­ther ma­te­ri­alised.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes the orig­i­nal 1898 stone school build­ing and two mod­ern pre­fab­ri­cated build­ings, plus the for­mer play­ground, which ex­tends to more than an acre.
