Full description

The subject property is a significant two storey property of traditional construction, offered as an investment opportunity by retaining Bishop Auckland Workmen's Club and Institute Limited who have been in residence on site as owner occupiers for many years. The proposal will involve the creation of a lease agreement allowing the club to remain in occupation as tenants continuing in its existing capacity and use class. The site is located within a prominent and visible position within Bishop Auckland, whereby the occupier will be able to continue its existing leisure-based drinking establishment and function facility attracting members and customers from a sizeable population. The property comprises widespread bar and games accommodation to the ground floor, together with an impressive multipurpose function and events room to the first floor that has a stage, dance floor, seating area and bar.

The site is located at Belvedere Terrace, a key thoroughfare in the centre of Bishop Auckland, County Durham. Bishop Auckland is a historic town located in the south west of the county around fifteen miles from Durham city centre, to the north east, and thirteen miles from Darlington, to the south. The town has a local population in the region of 25,000 and is supported by a well-established infrastructure including many national retailers, health, education and transport facilities.
