New term for former school

Chance to snap up historic property in the heart of Perth

Former school in Perth

A FORMER school in the heart of Perth city centre which, more recently, has been home to licensed premises is up for sale.

Located on the corner of Mill Street and South Methven Street, the detached property is said to date from the 1860s and is of Italianate design.

The “substantial” property was once home to a school and council offices before being transformed into a multi-level entertainment venue comprising a sports bar and nightclub in the early 2000s; more recently it traded as Harry’s Bar.

Now the property, which sits in 0.82 acres and has a car park and beer garden, is being marketed by Cornerstone Business Agents with a guide price of £1.25 million on behalf of G1 Group, which also operates The Bothy and IMAX Playhouse cinema in the city.

Barry McNeil, director of Cornerstone who is handling the sale, said the building occupies a “prominent” city centre location close to Perth’s theatre, shops, offices and the main licensed trade circuit.

“Our clients have asked us to offer this property for sale in order that they can concentrate on their other substantial business interests in the town,” he said.
