Time to convert to city centre living.

A converted warehouse is proving particularly popular with buyers wanting to be part of the booming city culture.

Pandongate House, on the corner of City Road, Newcastle, is well-placed close to the popular Quayside yet within easy walking reach of the shops and offices of the city centre.

Pandongate House is being converted by developers Charles Church into 64 one and two-bedroomed apartments and the scheme is selling well, with the first buyers queuing overnight to secure a property.

Potential purchasers can see at first hand the design and specification. The show apartment boasts a powerful colour scheme to emphasise the modern city centre lifestyle that Pandongate House offers.

The bold black, silver, red and white colours are a strong look carried well by the excellent layout and the arched windows of the building.

Jeanette Miller, field sales manger for Chesterton International, explains the style used throughout the converted Victorian warehouse.

She said: "Pandongate House was a former bonded Victorian warehouse and was built at a time when Newcastle was at the forefront of world trading - the wealth of Victorian merchants was reflected in the magnificent buildings produced during that period.

"Located close to the heart of the city centre, the solid, Victorian walls and the double glazing on the enormous windows ensure that residents can escape from the hectic pace of city centre life into the quiet peace of their own home.

"The large, magnificent period windows and lofty ceilings produce interior expanses of light and space inside the traditional building and the elevated position of the development offers wonderful views of the River Tyne and its famous bridges.

"Additionally, the apartments feature contemporary flooring alongside stainless steel kitchens to create the perfect contemporary, minimalist look. Light colours traditionally add to the illusion of vast space yet they can be easily adapted for the winter months with the addition of warm accessories including cushions, rugs and throws in oranges, reds and burnt shades.

"The open-planned rooms are perfect for entertaining as the period and regional features lend themselves to the grandeur of entertaining while the lighting can also be adapted to offer a sense of intimacy for guests.

"The elegance and craftsmanship of Pandongate House will appeal to a wide range of buyers and can be easily adapted to suit a wide variety of tastes and styles."
