Abode secure ‘Co-op’ for Landmark North Down Building

‘Abode’  are pleased to announce that the co-operative have signed a long term lease for the Ground Floor of one of North Down’s Landmark Listed Buildings – Regent House in Newtownards town centre

Regent House situated in Regent St, Newtownards is a Grade 2 Listed Building. It is a specialist building and a great example of Georgian architecture.

A major refurbishment by the co-op is due to commence soon.  The beauiful corniced ceiling and magnificent dome are all to be protected & the building works will be a boost for local contractors and suppliers

Securing a tenant of the standard of co-operative will help maintain the up-keep of the listed building and bring the building back into public use and relevance

The co-op will operate their nationwide ‘funeral services’ chain from Regent House. This will generate some much needed employment in Ards and hopefully auxillary local suppliers will benefit

Regent House has had many uses over it’s 200 year history. Originally it was a Gentlemans residence and boasted a private drive down to St.Marks church. The original resident was also the owner of the local Brewery which was in the building now used by the Toursit Office. At the turn of the 20th century it was a doctors surgery.Thereafter it was used as the original building for Regent House Grammar School, Ferguson Ford dealership & Gregstown Furniture showrooms.

We would like to wish the co-operative every success in Regent House and thank ‘Commercial Property Solutions’ for their professional assistance throughout the process
