Victorian splendour is revived.

In the 21st Century, industry, leisure and residential developments have transformed the Quaysides of Newcastle. The city continues to grow in reputation, popularity and wealth and on this basis it is little surprise that Pandongate House, by housebuilder Charles Church, has enjoyed overwhelming sales success in the few months since its launch.

Pandongate House, a former bonded warehouse, was built at a time when Newcastle was at the forefront of world trading.

The building, which will comprise 64 one- and two-bedroom apartments, is on the corner of City Road, close to the city centre, yet the solid Victorian walls and newly-fitted double glazing ensure residents can escape the noise of the city around them.

The redbrick facade has been carefully retained with attractive features such as refurbished windows and stone dressing punctuating the outstanding exterior. Inside, exposed brickwork and lofty ceilings produce expanses of light. The next release of apartments, on January 30, will have the same loft-style features associated with Pandongate House.

The use of contemporary flooring alongside stainless-steel kitchens creates a distinctive look, with open-plan rooms accentuating the feeling of space.

The quality and finish of these apartments is appealing to a wide range of buyers as each apartment can be adapted to suit a variety of tastes and styles.

Pandongate House has easy access to the Quayside with its restaurants, bars and buzzing nightlife and is within a few minutes' walk of some of the best shops in England.
