Contemporary offices to let/for sale in rural setting
An exciting opportunity has arisen for businesses looking to move into a complex of offices combining agricultural charm and modern facilities in a prime location.
Alton Business Centre is situated in a pleasant countryside setting but is only four miles to the south of Ipswich town centre with the A14 and the A137 interchange being about a mile away.
The property comprises a high quality conversion combining the original character and charm of a range of traditional agricultural buildings with a contemporary office environment. Units 3 to 5 include three interconnecting suites providing between 650 and 4,900 sq ft, with generous on-site parking for over 30 vehicles. The premises are shortly to be vacated by the current tenants, ForFarmers Limited, who are relocating.
Richard Cooper of ForFarmers UK said the company has been in occupation at the Valley Lane offices for more than ten years, having moved out of a central Ipswich location. He added: “ForFarmers UK are moving as the result of bringing a number of teams together in a new UK main office building at Rougham which will be occupied this spring. Valley Lane has ticked a number of boxes for us; the location – its close proximity to the A14 and A12 means that visitors and staff have had easy access – and the site has the benefit of good parking.
“The accommodation lends itself to team working and has provided a great work environment in a wonderful rural setting – in many respects we will be sad to leave.”
Alistair Mitchell, Partner at Fenn Wright said the property presents an exciting opportunity for the right business. He commented: “The office premises provide a combination of high quality accommodation in a quiet rural location, yet with excellent road connections, convenient access to both Ipswich and Manningtree railway stations and significant on-site parking.
“In my opinion these contemporary offices would suit a wide variety of businesses, with the three adjoining buildings capable of being combined to offer a range of size options.”
The premises at Alton Business Centre are now available to let on a new business lease through Fenn Wright’s Ipswich office.
Alternatively the freehold of the property including the adjoining premises, let to NFU Mutual, is available for sale. Further details are available from Fenn Wright’s Ipswich office 01473 232701 or email Alistair Mitchell.
