Creation of new apartments at conversion in Gloucester

Anyone interested in an apartment of their own in Gloucester will soon have a choice of one- and two-bedroom properties at a long-anticipated conversion of an iconic building in the town.

A three-storey former Gloucester Royal Mail sorting office on Eastern Avenue is going to provide 48 new homes in a joint venture between Cheltenham developer County to County and Birmingham-based Elevate Property Group. Their development is known as The Post House and will offer 34 one-bedroom homes with one allocated parking space, with prices ranging from £108,000 to £123,000, and 14 two-bedroom apartments with two of their own parking spaces, priced between £154,000 and £184,000. Work will start in June and a show home is due to open this September.

Sarah McKinnon of appointed agents Hamptons International in Cheltenham, says: “Location is always a critical factor in the success of any new residential development and The Post House scores very highly for access to the surrounding area. And the developers, County to County and Elevate Property Group, are recognised for the quality and specification they deliver in all their projects. This is one of the most exciting residential developments to come to the market in Gloucestershire and the South West in a very long time.”

The central Art Deco-style stairwell and atrium within the 1950s building will be retained and provide a stylish entrance area to the development. It has a good range of local shops and amenities close by and is around two miles from Gloucester city centre, its cathedral and the railway station, and has good road connections nearby to local towns and the M5.
