Lot 38: FORMER BORDER FORCE REGIONAL HEADQUARTERS

Withdrawn Prior

An incredibly rare opportunity in the heart of Avonmouth to acquire a genuinely enormous three storey primarily office building with multiple amenities and parking facilities, being most recently the home of the UK Border Force for the region, having been built, we understand, in the 1980s.

Custom House, which is convenient for the nearby Station and Portbury Docks, lies only approximately a mile from Junction 18 of the M5 and not much more than seven miles from Bristol City Centre.

The convenient location of the property combined with its sheer scale is likely to appeal to owner-occupiers as well as investors with properties of this nature being a rare commodity indeed.

Accommodation

The total gross internal area of the building over its three floors is circa 2,400 square metres (over 25,000 square feet) and is essentially formed as a vast array of open plan and cellular offices around a central core, with an impressive board room on the top floor. There are plenty of W.C. facilities throughout the property as well as a number of showers and on the ground floor as befits the previous occupier there are a range of secure storage facilities.

Outside

The whole site extends to 0.3 hectares (0.75 acres) and includes a car park for about thirty five vehicles accessed by way of an electric gate.

Tenure

Remainder of a 75 year lease from the 1st December 1980, expiring 30th November 2055 at a current head rental of £17,326 per annum.
