Going under the hammer
Two properties on Cheap Street are going under the hammer at the end of the month in what could prove a significant moment for Newbury's forgotten corridor.
The most expensive of the two properties is the unmodernised Grade II listed mid terrace building 41/41A Cheap Street with a guide price of £280,000.
Although empty for many years, the building was last used by Hodgeson Furnishes.
The second building going for auction is said to be particularly interesting for rental investors and developers. A mid terrace building arranged as a lock-up shop and split level self-contained maisonette with potential to create two flats subject to usual consents.
K's Cafe and apartment have a guide price of £200,000.
Recently Cheap Street was hit by the news that Prohibition Bar would be closing and the Post Office is also moving on to Northbrook Street.
