The home of the cancer support charity CLAN (Cancer Link Aberdeen and North), an impressive former church in Aberdeen, has gone on the open market through Knight Frank.
The property comprises the former Rosemount Church and Hall situated on a prominent island site off Caroline Place, Aberdeen. The site includes a granite listed category C building and hall which are currently known as CLAN House and CLAN Haven.
The buildings are currently owned by CLAN, however, the charity is relocating to new purpose built premises in Westburn Road in Summer 2011, so the site is no longer required.
CLAN House and CLAN Haven offer a total of 13,537 sq ft of space with many of the original church features retained including extensive timber panelling, vaulted ceilings and stained glass panelling.
The accommodation is provided over two stories with a large reception area, various private offices, a kitchen and treatment rooms of varying sizes on the ground floor. The first floor features a large meeting room and library while there is also a basement level. The CLAN Haven building is linked to the former church and provides 16 bedrooms together with a kitchen, dining room and lounge.
The site has access from both Rosemount Terrace and Caroline Place and includes car parking for 16 vehicles. An attractive landscaped garden area lies to the south of the site.
Katherine Monro, partner, Knight Frank said: “This is a well-known and impressive property on a strategic, landmark site so it is likely to attract considerable local interest. The surrounding area is predominately residential, however Berryden Retail Park lies five minutes to the north and there is the potential for a variety of uses on this site, subject to planning permission.
“It is likely that a purchaser will look to acquire planning for an alternative use such as residential units, a nursery, medical centre or offices.”
Debbie Thomson, Chief Executive, CLAN said: “It will be quite a wrench leaving this wonderful building – it has been our home since 1996. Without exception everyone who has come through our doors over this time has commented on the wonderful renovations and how it is much larger than it appears from the outside.
“We are a local organisation who has diligently responded to the needs of our clients for the past 27 years and we have regrettably outgrown this beautiful facility. We are, however, all very much looking forward to moving to our new centre where we will continue to deliver our unique services and support to those who need it now and in the future. As a reminder of our history, we will be taking some of the internal features with us.”
Offers of are invited for the benefit of the feuhold interest in the property. Further information can be obtained by contacting Katherine Monro at Knight Frank on 01224 415962.
