A LANDMARK building has been sold in Denbigh.

Town and Country Property Auctions, together with partner agents Legat Owen, acting on behalf of TT Group, have sold the Grade II Listed Royal Mail Sorting Office in Denbigh Town Centre for a price of £277,000.

It had a guide price of £160,000 (plus fees) and received 125 bids at auction. 

Neil McDonald, CEO at Town and Country Property Auctions, said: “We are proud to have worked with our auction partners Legat Owen to achieve such a fantastic result for our mutual client.

"This highlights that the amalgamation of state-of-the-art technology and knowledgeable proactive teams working together via the auction route, delivers results of the highest calibre."

The property features two retail units at ground floor level, one of which is occupied by a Post Office Counter. There are upper floors at first and second floor level, providing opportunity for a variety of uses [subject to planning and a comprehensive redevelopment scheme]. 

Town and Country Property Auctions were unable to say who had purchased the property but did confirm it was a "company" rather than an individual.

Earlier this month, the Free Press reported that the former Natwest on Vale Street had been sold along with the former Barclays and Denbigh Chocolate Shop, which was founded by Mary Tetley and her husband councillor Mark Young on World Chocolate Day in 2009.


Cllr Young said at the time: "Reflecting on our time running the Chocolate shop in the warm, welcoming community of Denbigh, the fresh opportunity of new businesses coming to our market town is an opportunity we should grab with both hands.

"We had great support during our 15 years of business here, and we wish to see this continue as the new businesses open, which will give countless benefits to all.

"I offer my gratitude and best wishes to those opening these businesses and investing in our town."
