Flats inside weekly newspaper’s former home go on market

Flats housed inside a former weekly newspaper office are now back on the market following the building’s conversion.

The old Doncaster Free Press headquarters at Sunny Bar are now being marketed as a mix of residential and commercial properties.

The Free Press left Sunny Bar in 2014 after 89 years there, and the building was taken over by Doncaster homelessness organisation the M25 Group.

However, M25 themselves vacated the building and flats inside are now back on the property market.

They are being touted at young, professional couples who want to live in the town centre.

Discussing Sunny Bar’s latest development, Alison Telford-Simms, sales manager for vendors Diamond Estates, told the Free Press: “It is a lovely building in the centre of Doncaster with a hotel feel to it.

“It has been fully fitted out and refurbished. It is an iconic building in Doncaster.”

The paper moved to a new base in Printing Office Street four years ago, but was left without a permanent office presence in Doncaster after Johnston Press vacated the new HQ last year.

    I’m sure young, professional couples will love sleeping next to the sink.

    Yes, it’s a sign of the times isn’t it when the bed is right next to the sink and fridge and what is probably (out of shot) the rest of the kitchen. At least you don’t have to go far for a midnight snack.
