Features and description


These former banking premises were converted to a single property some years ago and currently present as a single building.

The Owners are proposing to subdivide the property into short term apartment rentals on the upper two floors (accessed from the rear), leaving the lower three floors as a self-contained unit, this is further described below.

This is a self-contained property forming part of the City's famous rows, to which it has a frontage. It also abuts a passageway at row level that leads to a rear Courtyard and the Commercial Hotel, a busy open events space in the City, with a rear frontage to this area.

Having a double width shopfront, the ground floor is arranged with an open front sales area leading to two separate rear offices. This will be opened up as far a possible during the subdivision process.

These modernisation works will also include a replacement internal staircase up to the row level and works to further open up the row level by removal of non-structural internal partitions, and a new shopfront to the row.

Mindful of possible hospitality uses, provision will be made for enhanced use of the basement.

Plans are attached for better reference.
