The former Bella Blu restaurant on Market Place in Bolsover is set to go under the hammer later this month, with a guide price of just £125,000.

Flames tore through the impressive three-storey stone building, which stands close to Bolsover Castle and according to Bella Blu’s website is more than 450 years old, in October 2018 and the restaurant never reopened.

A ‘complete restoration’ is required, according to the sales brochure, which says that the 600sqm freehold property has ‘excellent potential’ and would be suitable for a ‘variety of uses’.

The building is one of 42 lots listed for sale by Mark Jenkinson & Son at an auction which is due to take place on Tuesday, October 20, at The Platinum Suite, within Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane stadium.
