Here’s a chance to get social as lockdown restrictions ease

NOW lockdown restrictions are being eased it could be the perfect opportunity to look at revisiting the local social club or even going the whole hog and acquiring one of your very own.

The Greenway Social Club, on Greenway Drive, Grifithstown, near Pontypool, has come on the market and could well fit the bill.

Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions is selling the social club, which only closed its doors to customers last year, with a guide price of £350,000 plus.

Sean Roper, who is handling the sale of the property for Paul Fosh Auctions, said: “The Greenway Social Club is a substantial building with land and a car park. The club traded until early 2020.

“The property requires significant improvement and modernisation should it be utilised in the future as a social club however, it is envisaged that it would be better cleared for redevelopment of the whole site, subject to the necessary planning approval. The surrounding estate has a mix of larger executive detached residences and semi-detached properties.

“The site measures approx. 0.86 acres/3,470 sq m and would be ideal for residential development or other commercial uses such as care home, subject to necessary planning consents.”

The town of Griffithstown is a highly sought-after location with an excellent range of local amenities and shopping facilities and schools at both primary and senior level. There are superb road links to Cwmbran, Newport and the M4 motorway.

The property currently offers a concert room/bar, lounge, another bar, three storerooms, spacious function room, wcs and cellar room. There is a games room, former office and store, kitchenette and living rooms on the first floor. Outside there is a drive leading to parking area, gardens and land to front side and rear.

The next Paul Fosh Auctions online sale, when this property among some ninety others will be offered for sale, starts at 12 noon on Tuesday, April 27 and ends from 5pm on Thursday, April 29.
