Customs House, Clayton Street, Avonmouth, Bristol, BS11 9DX
Withdrawn After

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 and 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 eight 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.


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


The building offers substantial office accommodation over three floors 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 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.

EPC Information

The EPC for the property states the energy rating to be Band C.


The whole site extends to 0.3 hectares (0.75 acres) and includes a car park for approximately 35 vehicles accessed by way of an electric gate.
