Former pub to go under the hammer for £250,000-plus

A former public house in a Derbyshire town with planning permission for conversion into nine apartments up for auction next month.

Brennan’s Bar at 2 Regent Street in Long Eaton has been listed with a guide price of £250,000-plus in the livestreamed auction on 9 February.

The vacant freehold property was previously a Conservative Club until the early 2000s.

Ian Tudor, joint managing director of the auctions division at Bond Wolfe, said: “This building is a deceptively spacious, three-storey and end-terraced public house with associated living accommodation.

“There is currently a bar, two lounges, a function room, kitchen, stores and toilets on the ground floor, with a landing, bar, office or meeting room, more toilets and stores upstairs and a lounge, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and more stores on the second floor.

“But the property also benefits from planning permission granted by Erewash Borough Council for a change of use to become nine residential apartments with associated external alterations.”

Tudor added: “There are a range of potential opportunities for this building as either a commercial enterprise or as a conversion to residential apartments.

“It is in a popular spot very close to a mix of local and national retailers, bars, restaurants and residential buildings.”
