Property description

The existing building comprises a former bank of traditional construction with solid brick walls under a slate covered pitched and hipped roof lying within the Ponteland Conservation Area. If planning permission is implemented and the property is developed in accordance with the approved plans, the building would provide three distinctive areas.

Unit 1 comprising the ground floor of the original bank has planning permission for Class A3 (restaurant and café)/A5 (hot takeaway food) usage with floor area of approximately 132.76 sq m (1,429 sq ft).

Unit 2 comprises the new glass box extension overlooking the River Pont which also has Class A3 (restaurant and café) / A5 (hot takeaway food) usage and
will be clad in vertical timber to complement the colour of the original building and brickwork with dark grey aluminium framed double glazed and a dark grey nettle
parapet capping to the flat roof.

The first floor, with independent access from Ponteland Road, has planning permission for a spacious 3 bedroom apartment over two floors with open plan kitchen/dining/ lounge area with separate snug/study/cinema room, visitor WC, 2 large bedrooms with en-suites and a large top floor bedroom with en-suite and dressing room. The upper floors can also be retained as office accommodation if desired. Alternatively, the whole building, including all three sections can be occupied by a single tenant.

Rental offers are invited or alternatively our client may consider a freehold sale.

Planning permission

On 1 May 2019 planning permission was granted for the conversion and change of use of the ground floor from Class A2 to Class A3/A5 with the addition of a new
