Graham Barton/Audrey Smith

A rare opportunity to acquire effectively two, three storey buildings (the rear being particularly handsome) that are umbilically linked and benefit from some far-reaching views to the rear and comprising the prominent former town centre NatWest premises.

The property may appeal to end-users but more likely to investors and developers due to the glaring potential for substantial residential development in tandem with some commercial usage, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable, on account of the versatility and sheer extent of the floorspace within the two component buildings and the points of access from both Fore Street and Crockwell Street.
