Former NatWest Bank Sold At Auction/ November Film Screening At Community Cinema

The former NatWest bank in Market Street has been sold today at a West Country auction by Clive Emson Land & Property Auctioneers. The gavel came down at £220,000 when the Grade 2* listed building of fine Georgian architecture and offering accommodation over four floors, was sold Freehold with vacant possession. It is not yet known who made the successful bid for the historic building and the sale is subject to the Common Auction Conditions and any special conditions of sale plus the usual fees. Catalogued as Lot 103 in the auction at St Mellion International Resort hotel complex in Saltash, Cornwall, the building which has remained empty since NatWest closed their Crewkerne branch in June 2018, was advertised as having mixed commercial and residential development potential, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable, by virtue of the various points of entry.
