It lies south of the Straiton Junction east of the A701, adjacent the Straiton retail area where retailers include IKEA, Costco, Sainsbury’s, M&S and Asda as well as Halfords, Next, Boots and Homebase. There are several local schools in the vicinity including Loanhead Primary, St Margaret’s Primary, Paradykes Primary and Lasswade High School. The property lies north of the B702 Hawthorn Gardens, approx. 0.5 miles south of the Straiton Junction in a mainly residential area. Adjacent, to the rear is the Trust Housing Association Hawthorn Gardens flatted housing unit (who have access route and rights across the site).
The property comprises a substantial former residential care home known as Mayburn House, built mainly over 2 storeys, previously used by the Church of Scotland but having lain vacant since 2008. The original structure dates from the late 19th century, is built in stone under pitched slated roofs, and has a 1960’s (approx.) dry dash rendered extension, all overlooking the main road. To the rear is an overgrown garden with some trees and a single storey brick lean-to building, the site bound by stone and brick walls and fencing. To the rear lies a sheltered housing development operated by Trust Housing Association who have an access route and rights across the site as shown on the plan included. Internally the property is in a state of disrepair and requires substantial upgrading and remedial works.
We estimate that the ground floor footprint of the buildings extends to approx. 9,110 sq. ft. (846.36 sq.m.). The footprint of the stone building is around 7,408 sq. ft. (688.28 sq. m.) or thereby.
We estimate that the property provides a total site area of approx. 0.978 acres (0.396 hectares) or thereby. Net of the hatched area (see plan) used for third party access, we estimate that the site extends to 0.867 acres (0.351 hectares) or thereby.
