www.drewpearce.co.uk For Sale - 2 Office Buildings with Parking
Zenith, Magdalen Road, Exeter
Description and Situation
This offers an almost unique opportunity to purchase these two office buildings with generous car parking provision in the much sought after St Leonard’s
area, within easy walking distance of the City centre. These prestigious premises are located on a key arterial route into the city with a prominent and
high profile frontage. To the rear is a luxury residential development which has been the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment to create stylish and
well specified homes. Each of the office buildings incorporates a substantial amount of arctic blue double glazing to the front making these suites light and
airy, with both buildings also enjoying reserved car parking to the front.
Exeter is the capital city and county town of Devon and has firmly established a reputation of being the commercial centre of the South West. The city has
a population of approximately 110,000 with a ‘drive to work’ population of some 480,000 within a 45 minute catchment area. The two mainline railway
stations are within walking distance as is the central shopping area with the nearly completed Princesshay Retail scheme. Access to the main trunk roads is
good with the M5 (junctions 29, 30 and 31) and the A38/A380 and A30/A303 dual carriageways. Exeter airport is approximately 8 miles distant with regular
national and international flights.
The offices would suit a variety of users subject to any necessary planning consents to include professional practices, estate agents, financial services or
administration based office users seeking a quality building with ample car parking in a prominent and very visible location on the edge of the city. We
strongly recommend an early inspection.
Zenith House 144.0 sq.m (1,550 sq.ft) max
This is the larger of the two buildings and is arranged on three floors. The ground
floor has an impressive glazed reception area leading to an inner lobby and a large
open plan office with 2 large floor to ceiling windows. This area would particularly
suit a customer facing user where a semi retail facade was an advantage. Leading off
this inner lobby is a toilet plus additional disabled toilet.
A staircase then leads up to the first floor which comprises a substantial open plan
office, which could easily be subdivided into 2 areas (by the purchaser), a secondary
manager’s office or a meeting / interview room and a storage cupboard.
The second floor is a stunning open plan space with fantastic views from the curtain
wall glazing to the whole front elevation over the city and beyond to the surrounding
countryside. This area would make a wonderful training or meeting area, or could
possibly suit an open plan administration office or call centre.
The building will be finished to a high standard including suspended ceilings on the
ground floor with plastered finish on the first and second floors, gas fired central
heating system, category 2 lighting throughout the offices, perimeter trunking for
power and data cabling and carpeting to the office areas and staircases with ceramic
floor tiling to the reception area and ground floor lobby.
