A unique building on Plymouth’s historic waterfront is up for sale through city property company Stratton Creber Commercial (SCC).

Built in 1847 and located next to the Custom House, 9 The Parade is thought to be the last remaining unmodernised Barbican warehouse, formerly home to a succession of ships’ agents and stores merchants.

SCC agency surveyor Gavin Sagar anticipates high levels of interest in the unusual building: “The property has recently become available due to an imminent sale falling through. It is likely to generate considerable interest from developers and investors.

“Planning has already been granted for A1, A2 or A3 use on the ground floor with six one-bedroom apartments on the upper floors.”

The Grade II listed building falls within the Barbican Conservation Area and overlooks an open, cobbled zone with views over nearby Sutton Harbour.

One of the city’s most exciting and cosmopolitan areas, this unrivalled location has seen the conversion of many similar buildings into ground floor commercial units with residential apartments above.
