LOCATION

Perth is the administrative centre for Perth and Kinross District and is located on the banks of the River Tay in the heart of Scotland.  It has a population of around 45,000 people.  

Situated just off the M9 it enjoys close proximity to Scotland’s major cities and around 90% of the country’s population is accessible within a 90-minute drive.  Dundee lies approximately 22 miles to the east with Edinburgh 43 miles to the south and Glasgow 61 miles to the southwest.

The premises are located close to the corner of Victoria Street where it connects with Princes Street.  The surrounding properties are generally residential in nature but there is a Matalan store and car park directly opposite with a range of other commercial occupiers on Princes Street.

BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Frames Gallery is a unique, family-owned, independent art gallery and picture framing business located in the centre of Perth.

Since it first opened in 1979, Frames Gallery has built a reputation for displaying some of Scotland’s most sought-after contemporary artists.  It was even the first art gallery in the country to embrace ‘online’ in 1996 when its website www.framesgallery.co.uk was launched.

The business, which has been based in Victoria Street since 1991, is owned and operated by a husband-and-wife team supported by several full-time and part-time members of staff; one of which has been there for 31 years.   

The business goodwill, heritable title to the property, fixtures and fittings are now being sold due to the retirement of the Business Partners. It offers an excellent opportunity for those with experience in art galleries to continue and develop further the services offered.

ACCOMMODATION DETAILS

The subjects are arranged over the ground floor of a three-storey traditional building with residential units to the upper levels.

The premises are split into various areas comprising a bright front shop/gallery, complete with original fireplace, leading through to further gallery and framing displays. 

An extension was added to the property in 1997 and this now provides around 550 sq ft of exhibition space for hosting events.  From here there is a door leading outside to a large area laid to gravel which could be utilised for hosting outdoor events.

The workshop accommodation, meanwhile, is accessed just off the gallery providing space for storage and preparation as well as a dedicated framing area.  It benefits from large double doors off Victoria Street allowing materials to be delivered.

158.44 sq m (1,708 sq ft)

I recently used Allied Surveyors for the very first time and was extremely impressed with the service provided. From the initial marketing aspect to them finding a very suitable tenant to lease my premises in Edinburgh. The whole process was run smoothly and very efficiently start to finish

Iain and his wider team recently sold two of our commercial properties in the Borders region for us. An excellent, very efficient and first-class service. Very pro-active in moving the sales along to conclusion. Highly recommended.

Iain, Berndetta and Lauren provided a seamless and thoroughly professional service during our recent commercial letting in Edinburgh. A fantastic experience and I’d have no hesitation in working with their team again.

Ellie is fantastic to work with. She goes over and above to ensure all our needs were met, right from the initial contact through to completion. She is thorough, professional and works hard to meet deadlines. A pleasure to work with. Thank you.

I have huge thanks for Simon and all at Allied Surveyors who are just the most wonderful company to deal with. Buying/selling a home can be a complex process and to give someone your time is such a simple thing yet often lost in the current world, Simon at Allied has given us just that as well as mountains of advice and a sharing of his knowledge. Thanks Again

We have just used Allied Surveyors for EPC for our properties on the Isle of Mull and found them to be excellent throughout the process. All contacts were friendly, clear, efficient and courteous and the surveyor was very knowledgeable and considered in his work on site. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

Never had an issue with Allied Surveyors. Mrs E Henderson was brilliant both with buying and selling my previous and current property. Would always use them as my first choice.

Quick and efficient service from Andy and his team - just as they said they would do. Special mention to Andy as he was actually on his holidays when he initially responded.

Allan from Allied Stirling has done a few home report surveys for us in recent years. He has always been honest, thorough and professional. And decent value for money. I highly recommend him.

We’re here to help.
