3 storey office building with parking
Size 307.98 sq m (3,315 sq ft)


The property comprises 3 storey purpose built office building forming part of the wider industrial / warehouse accommodation here. We anticipate it was built in the 1960's / 70's.

Whilst Freeman House is physically connected to the adjoining industrial property and shares means of escape to the rear, it can stand as a self-contained office building.

The accommodation is currently arranged as a series of rooms to each floor. Most of the internal walls are
demountable. So the space could be opened to provide more open plan accommodation should such be required by an ingoing tenant.

The specification to the property is reasonable to include:

Carpet tiles
Perimeter trunking
Ceiling tiles
?LED lighting
Good natural light
Gas central heating
WC accommodation to the ground and first floors
Wall mounted air conditioning to some rooms

We understand the premises also benefits from 9 allocated parking spaces to the front and west of the premises.

The property has the following approximate IPMS Office 3

Ground floor 959 sq ft - 89.11 sq m

First floor 1,386 sq ft - 128.73 sq m

Second floor 970 sq ft - 90.13 sq m

Total 3,315 sq ft 307.98 sq m


The property has, we understand, been used as offices for many years. This is a B1 use under the former Use Classes Order 1987 and E use under the 2020 Use Classes Order. Our view is that the property therefore has an established office use.

Interested parties should make their own planning enquiries and satisfy themselves in this regard.
