Business opportunity for sale in Ayrshire with DM Hall

by | Aug 8, 2017 | News | 0 comments

Sunnyside Nursery, a well-established family run lifestyle business in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, comprising a florist and garden centre business, together with owner?s accommodation, is on the market at a guide price of ?595,000 with DM Hall, one of Scotland?s largest independent firms of chartered surveyors. The sale opportunity arises due to the impending retirement of the owners.

The business, located to the east of Hazel Grove, a local road route within the Corsehill area to the east of the 16,000 population town, sits on almost a 7 acre site, with a garden centre complex, polytunnels and greenhouses. Large parts of the site remain undeveloped.

The owner?s bungalow comprises a vestibule and hallway, lounge, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and shower room, with two further bedrooms at attic level.

Sunnyside Nursery has been established at this location since the early 1900s and the current owners family took it over in 1960. The business is well-established with a strong local and community core which in recent years has focused on the year round florist trade. There is, in addition, good, seasonal garden centre activity with the potential to expand the growing element. There are also steady greenhouse sales from a range of wood and aluminium products on display.

The business has an excellent reputation locally and is the florist of choice for most local funeral directors. Consistent year round trade peaks at Valentine?s Day, Mother?s Day and Christmas with the owners offering local and nationwide deliveries.

Opening hours are 9 am until 5 pm Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and 10 am to 4 pm on Sunday in April ? June. In the year to 31 March 2017 turnover was ?511,926 and net profit was in excess of ?100,000.

Suzanne Lawrie of DM Hall, said: ?The opportunities for further development of the business and of the site are significant and we would expect a high level of interest in it.

?Viewing is strictly by appointment and can be arranged by contacting me at?
