A former pub earmarked for flats for disabled people has been sold.

The Vital Spark in Govan Road in Glasgow is set to be turned into flats for disabled people.

The sale was handled by Cornerstone Business Agents and while the value of the transaction was not disclosed it had been on the market at a guide price of Ā£215,000.

Glasgow Times:

Linthouse Housing Association was recently granted permission by Glasgow City CouncilĀ to convert the Vital Spark, which was previously Fairfield Bar.

Two two-bedroom flats are planned, with one accessed from Govan Road and the other from Clachan Drive.

They will both have access to the communal backcourt at 1147 Govan Road, which is also owned by the housing association.

Council planners said earlier that ā€œgenerally this arrangement would not be acceptableā€ given the ā€œrisk of the division of ownership from the proposed units and the backcourtā€.

Cornerstone said: ā€œGovan Road provides a mix of retail and commercial businesses serving this highly populated area of the city. The subjects form the ground floor of a Victorian style four storey tenement property. Internally the property comprises, main bar, kitchen preparation area, WCs and basement cellar.

The schedule continued: "The availability of the subject offers a variety of potential uses. Subject to change of use, the property would also be suitable for retail or residential use. The subjects are also being sold on a rarely available freehold basis making this an ideal opportunity for landlord and investor purchasers."
