3c High Street is a two storey Grade II Listed 17th Century building with an attic conversion. Of timber frame construction with lath and plaster and brick infill, it has striking painted render elevations and a tiled roof and was originally part of a terrace of houses but has now been converted to offices.
The property is approached by a pedestrian walkway directly from High Street running between ‘Simply Fresh’ and Venue Xpresso’. The passageway continues through to the rear where a car park provides 2 allocated spaces for the subject suite.
The property has been extensively refurbished but has retained numerous period features including exposed wall and ceiling timbers, windows with leaded lights and plank doors. There are also a number of contemporary additions to create a modern office environment which include a gas fired central heating system to radiators, skirting trunking for electric / IT / telecoms, VDU compliant lighting and refitted kitchen and WC facilities.
The ground floor entrance door with intercom is shared with one other business in the building and off which the reception lobby is a communal WC and private storeroom for the suite. The other accommodation is on the first floor and comprises three offices; two are connected by way of a doorway with windows to either side and a further window to the gable wall. Off the landing is the shared kitchen and further WC and a separate door leads to a third office / meeting room with a feature chimney breast.
The property is held by way of a lease expiring 31st January 2020 which will provide an ingoing tenant with only a short initial commitment and the landlord has indicated he would renew the lease on suitable terms. Alternatively, consideration would also be given to a surrender of the existing lease and the granting of a new longer one.
