News: Town property up for auction


A prominent Rotherham town centre building is going up for auction next month on the instruction of the receivers.

2A & 6, 6A, 6B and 6C on Wellgate is predominantly vacant but includes the 235 sq ft Staniforths bakery outlet and the former premises of Keith Mallinson Tailors and Peter Bird hairdressers. It also includes 2,800 sq ft of office space on the upper floors.

Set to go under the hammer at the June auction of Sheffield chartered surveyors, Mark Jenkinson & Son, the property has a guide price of £125,000–£150,000. GVA are the joint auctioneers.

Recent investment on Wellgate has seen Kebabish Original open a franchise in the former Number 10 bar with a main restaurant, plus three special family semi-private areas holding a further 30 diners. It also incorporates a Coffee Republic operation and future plans include a fully refurbished banqueting suite which will host conferences, weddings and other events. Planning permission was also secured to convert the upper floors to form four flats.

The auctioned property was owned by D C Peat Farms Ltd, the family company that owned a number of properties in town and who sold the Best Western Consort Hotel in Thurcroft last year.

Similarly, 19 & 19a Wellgate and The Prince of Wales Feathers on Sheffield Road, also previously owned by D C Peat Farms Ltd are up for sale at the same auction.
