Developers are being sought for two Grade II listed Georgian town houses on Brunswick Square, near Bristol city centre, which were home to the former Brunswick Club, until it closed in May.

The elegant period properties in St Paul's have a 130-year history as a working men's club, but could be re-configured for a number of alternative uses subject to planning consents.

Jay Ridsdale, a director in the Bristol office of commercial property agents Colliers International, which is offering the properties for sale, said: "Following the closure of the club the buildings may prove suitable to alternative uses such as housing, in keeping with the wider regeneration of old St Paul's which is transforming this historic district of the city.”

Brunswick Square and neighbouring Portland Square have been the focus of recent re-development that has seen a number of buildings that were vacant or being used as offices returned to residential use.

Mr Ridsdale: “A number of properties in these grand squares and fine town houses have stood empty or semi-derelict, and development will be part of the process of bringing the district back to life.”

The former Brunswick Club overlooks Brunswick Square and is arranged over basement, ground and three upper floors totalling 13,500 sq ft.

It is currently configured as a club with reception, bar/lounge, basement skittles, snooker room and ancillary accommodation on the upper floors.
