Nottingham historic building sold to mystery buyer
A historic building near Nottingham Castle, known as Severn’s House, has been sold through commercial property agency Innes England.
Originally constructed as a merchants house in 1450 on Middle Pavement, it was later relocated in 1968 to accommodate the new Broadmarsh shopping centre.
The building now stands at the junction of Castle Road and Castle Gate.
Throughout its existence, Severn’s House has served various purposes, including housing architects’ offices in the 19th century and operating as a wine and spirit business under John and James Severn in 1900.
Also referred to as the Severn’s Building, this two-story semi-detached property holds a place on the National Heritage List for England.
The property has been sold to a new company for an undisclosed amount and they haven’t revealed their plans for its future use yet.
Innes England’s Ross Whiting said: “The buyer was very interested in this slice of Nottingham history and can’t wait to get started on their future plans. It’s an iconic building, recognisable to the people of Nottingham as well as the many visitors to the Castle area. It was a pleasure to be involved in the sale of such a meaningful property.”
