A FORMER manor house and school in Bangor is set to go under the hammer.
Treborth Hall, which served as Ysgol Coed Menai for more than 60 years, is to be auctioned after closing its doors nearly two years ago.
Do Mathew, of Bangor Civic Society, said: “This is a Grade II listed building, so it should have some protection. The sale could give it a new lease of life, and its setting is beautiful.
"We would only be concerned if some inappropriate development was subsequently attempted, and as a Society we will be keeping a keen eye out for this”.
The Grade II listed building was built for ship owner and MP Richard Davies circa 1860-70, and became a school for remedial education in 1950.
Gwynedd Council closed the school in August 2012 and replaced it with a specialised unit in September that year.
The property is due to be auctioned by Pugh and Co at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday, June 12.
It will have a guide price of £250,000-£300,000.
Paul Thompson, director and auctioneer at Pugh and Co, said: “Clearly this is a very interesting opportunity for someone as these types of properties don’t come along too often and I’m sure potential buyers will recognise that this could be chance.”
