Barker Storey Matthews' Cambridge office has recently completed a pair of contrasting commercial property transactions in the cathedral city of Ely.

In the historic city centre, a ground floor retail unit of 593 sq ft at 12 Fore Hill has been let to Frames Conservatories Direct, the East Anglian home improvements company, on a 9-year lease at a rent of £16,000 per annum.

A two storey building, totalling 1,160 sq ft, with open plan office accommodation on the first floor, storage at ground floor level and a private yard with space for four vehicles at 71A Newnham Street has been sold to N R Plumbing and Heating Ltd for use as new business premises. The property was marketed at £170,000 freehold but, according to agent Barker Storey Matthews, achieved a higher figure upon sale.
