Rent the historic Christchurch Spire for a mere £12,000 per year.
One of Coventry’s famous ‘three spires’ is up for rent.
The property, listed by commercial property experts Holt Commercial, was previously the home of a craft bar, which for unknown reasons suddenly closed its doors at the end of last year.
The historic building makes up one of the iconic ‘three spires’ that Coventry is so well known for, having survived The Blitz.
The slender spire is the shortest of the three, at 230 feet high, while Holy Trinity stands just above it at 237 feet and St Michael’s tops the list at 295 feet.
Located on New Union Street and close to its junction with Warwick Row and Hertford Street, the property provides the rare opportunity for a tenant to occupy premises with a significant history that dates from the early 14th century.
The interior of the spire benefits from original features and striking vaulted ceilings, home to a compact open plan area with a bar and seating. A separate lavatory, storage area and kitchen are located to the side.
The base of the spire is accessed via a grand main door at the front, housed in an attractive large frame.
The estate agents have said that any ingoing tenant will need to undertake some work to bring the property to a useable condition.
The area immediately in front of the property is also expected to benefit from public realm works (pictured below) being carried out by Coventry City Council to beautify the dated planters and benches.
Christchurch Spire is listed for £1,000 per month – so £12,000 per anum – which to rent apart of Coventry’s history seems reasonable.
