About the space
The refurbished building known as “Bank” on Warwick's High Street is one of the town's most iconic properties currently available for office, retail or leisure use. It was purpose built in 1924 for the National Provincial, in the golden age of banking architecture with a neo-Georgian theme, in the style of Sir Christopher Wren. The buildings symmetrical exterior incorporates elegant white stone work which contrasts the red brick, offering a prominent entrance with large feature windows that lead up towards ornamental stonework on the parapet roof.
There is a selfcontained ATM room with external only access. The interior of the building exudes period features including chequered slate and marble tiles, wood panelling and parquet flooring. Plaster cornice and coving in the old banking hall and managers office highlight the nineteen feet high ceiling. A sympathetic extension has internal balconies overlooking the ground floor area with ample room for a mezzanine floor to add space, whilst retaining the open feel. Huge windows to three sides of the building flood the space with natural daylight, whilst stairs lead to the former banks vault with original door and further safes and cages within, which would lend themselves as creative features.
The bank is located on the corner of the High Street at the junction with Swan Street, which is the main shopping thoroughfare, in the centre of this busy market county town. There are fourteen public car parks serving the centre. There is a private gated car park behind the property accessed from Swan Street, ideal for deliveries that could alternatively be utilised as customer facing outdoor space, accessed from the rear door of the property.

Birmingham Airport, National Exhibition Centre and Birmingham International Station are a short drive away. There are plentiful bus routes to and from the town, serving the University of Warwick, Kenilworth, Leamington, Coventry and numerous villages, with the bus station a three-minute walk away.
