Former Le Bateau nightclub premises up for auction

The former premises of Le Bateau Nightclub on Duke Street in Liverpool City Centre are amongst the ninety six lots up for grabs at Sutton Kersh's next property auction on the 22nd May.

The vacant four storey building with basement is located at 62 Duke Street within a well established bar and nightclub circuit in the Ropewalks district. It is fully fitted as a nightclub with offices on the upper two floors and has a total approximate floor area of 612.5sq.m (6,593 sq.ft). Subject to the necessary planning consents it would be suitable for a variety of other uses and carries a guide price of £180,000+.

Another property attracting a good level of interest is a three storey Grade II listed building on Princes Road in Toxteth. The period building comprises three floors and a usable attic and basement. It was previously used as offices and benefits from car parking spaces at the front and has an enclosed yard area to the rear with potential for further car parking spaces. The property requires a full programme of refurbishment and redecoration work and is guided at £115,000+.

So far this year leading local property auctioneer Sutton Kersh has held two auctions at which one hundred and twenty nine properties have sold for a total exceeding £8.5million. Their 22nd May auction will take place at the Liverpool City Centre Marriott Hotel at 12 noon. The full catalogue can be viewed online at here.
