Former RBS Bank in Hale is ready to welcome new business

The ground floor of this centrally located building in Hale village, has been transformed into three modern retail units with glass frontages.

159 Ashley Road occupies a prominent corner position in the leafy village of Hale and viewings are now available on the three new retail or leisure units.

Originally built in the 1920s as a bank and two retail shops, the property was designed in an Arts and Crafts style and remained in use as the local RBS branch until 2018. Since then, it has been used as a temporary library for the village before being reimagined by Forward Property Group, as a significant addition to the bustling high-street.

The spacious ground floor shop fronts and units have been completely revitalised and restored as they were originally designed and built and comprise of three new spaces, ready to welcome retail or leisure business to the thriving community. The first unit, entered through the corner double doors of the original bank, provides a street level space of 990 sqft with prominent double glass frontage and 740 sqft of basement area, providing that essential extra storage/utility space.

The second and third units offer a visible 376 sqft of ground floor space, one with a 560 sqft basement level. These units have been renovated to a high level in order to cater for the needs of today’s modern business, and the total space of 1,742 sqft along with 1,300 sqft basement space has the option to be configured as either one, two or three units.

A spokesperson from Forward Property Group, says, “We are delighted that we have been able to restore this long-standing building, ensuring that it remains at the heart of the community and village for many more years to come.
