A house that was the scene of a horrific double murder in the 1980s has gone up for sale.
Since the murders, the slightly dilapidated four-bedroom property at 2 Roseangle, Dundee, was occupied by students until it was bought for development seven years ago.
Now, owner Nael Hanna said he has been forced to sell it after being unable to realise his dream of turning it into a restaurant.
Although he bought the property for £450,000, he has been unable to get a loan to make the required repairs to bring the building back up to standard.
He said that, while he was upset at not being able to take it on himself, the house still has planning permission to be converted into a restaurant.
“It would be a fantastic investment project for someone,” he said.
“It’s a beautiful location and it has 1.2 acres of land out the back. I’ve got planning permission that still has four years left.”
While he would prefer to sell the house, Mr Hanna said he would also consider leasing the building, or going into a joint venture with someone.
The grade C listed building was mostly built in 1820.
Constructed over three floors, the detached villa requires substantial upgrading but still retains a number of architectural features.
These include a doric-columned front door, ground-floor oriel windows, a stair cupola, and what is thought to be an original sea wall.
Mr Hanna says he is looking for £500,000 for the property.
“It’s a beautiful building. It could be used for flats or housing, even a takeaway if someone didn’t want to take on the restaurant plan,” he added.
