The five-storey former bank, at 19 Euston Road, is currently empty, and property website Rightmove has put a guide price of £250,000 on the premises.

The freehold town centre property is likely to suit an investor or developer, and can be used as an alternative development opportunity, subject to any necessary consents.

The Grade II Listed building is arranged on basement, ground and three upper floors totalling about 4,156 sq ft.

There is a banking hall on the ground floor with ancillary offices and a store room above. The basement has more store rooms with strong room.

We reported last May how the building had been a striking feature of the resort since 1890.

It is recognised nationally as a structure of “special interest, warranting every effort to preserve it”.

The online auction takes place on Thursday March 25.
