This 83m² (874 sqft) Unit with upstairs office and ground floor work area set in a quiet rural location next to a small orchard and surrounded by superb farm land views. It is situated 3 miles from Junction 24 of the M1 and 8 miles south of Nottingham in South Nottinghamshire, between Clifton and Kegworth, near the Derbyshire and Leicestershire county borders making it a very central East Midlands location.
If available there is also a 20ft storage container at the rear of Unit 7b if you require extra storage space.
Floor area = 72.83 m² (784 sqft) gross and a useable area of 57.6 m² (620 sqft).
The type of suitable use for the building
reasonably close to my house is important so that it doesn't
spoil my enjoyment of my garden when not being used. The most suitable uses are the ones
that only create a small amount of traffic per day and have lower
staff numbers. The products produced or stored would have to of a
size/weight that could be lifted by humans and not by a machine.
The building has previously been used as all office space, but at the present time the building is being used as office space upstairs and storage space downstairs. The downstairs could easily be converted back to all office use without much expense.
The tenancy period is a minimum of one year.
