Girvan’s former police station is up for sale

Girvan’s former police station in Montgomerie Street has gone on the market.

The building was vacated by police in the town last month as they moved into new premises in a shared service agreement at the Girvan Community Hospital on the outskirts of the town.

Now Police Scotland’s estates department have put the building up for sale.

No specific price has been set by the estates department for the building but they are inviting offers.

The Gazette understands that parties have already made their interest known to Police Scotland with viewings said to be taking place soon.

The police office itself the consists of a reception area, cell corridor and a few offices with a back door leading out to an area with a garage and more than ample parking.

There is also a residential part to the property with the ground floor home to a large kitchen and lounge area with a stairway leading to a first landing.

The upper level is split into two sides with one consisting of the old dormitory rooms, a bathroom, small kitchen and five small cloak rooms with the other side also having a bathroom and one other room.

Throughout the property some of the rooms still have their original fireplaces with others having been boarded over.

Police Scotland estates department say if any interested party are wanting to make any alterations to the building then they should contact South Ayrshire Council’s planning department before submitting any offer.

A closing date for offers is likely to be set but that is not yet known.
