The property occupies a prominent corner site and was previously in use as a trade counter style unit for an electrical goods vendor.

The property is arranged over ground and first floors and would suit a variety of uses including retail, leisure and sui generis.

The property is also suited for development and is within an established residential area with a regular site of 0.11 acres. We consider the property to be ideal for residential conversion (subject to the necessary consents)

The property comprises a reception, office and storage area to the ground floor with a roller shuttor door providing access to the storage. The first floor comprises office space and further storage. The full gross internal area (GIA) is 5,784 sq ft (537.37 sq m).


Bishop Auckland is a market town located between Durham and Darlington and benefits from excellent road communications via the A1(M).

The property is situated on Kingsway, which runs parallel to Newgate Street, the main retail pitch of Bishop Auckland. The property is therefore in a quieter location with some surrounding retail use but with an increasing predominant residential use. There is a public car park opposite the property which generates good footfall for any potential retail use.
