The latest Huntingdon letting instruction of Barker Storey Matthews - now part of Eddisons - is a building which was once the office and factory headquarters of racing team, Lola Cars.

Most recently occupied by Phoenix Doors, part of Masco Windows and on whose behalf Barker Storey Matthews is acting, 18 Glebe Road on the St Peter’s Industrial Estate in Huntingdon is available to let by way of assignment of the lease or a sub-letting arrangement through the existing lease.

Described by the agent as a prestigious production and headquarters style property, 18 Glebe Road is a two storey building providing, in total, 6,0371 sq m (64, 83 sq ft) of accommodation comprising ground floor and first floor offices, mezzanine areas and two factory areas.

Factory Area A is 1,821 sq m (19,601 sq ft) and Area B is 1,638 sq m (17,631 sq ft) with eaves heights of 3.8 metres and 7 metres, respectively, with both areas having electronically operated loading doors. To the rear of the factory areas, is a secure self-contained yard with HGV entrance and exit providing access to both factory buildings via loading doors.

The production areas are supported by office accommodation which, at ground floor level, comprises an open plan reception and conference room and, on the first floor, is predominantly open plan - although the agent advises the immediate past occupier has partially divided the space for further meeting rooms.

Barker Storey Matthews also advises that the offices have a high standard specification, including air conditioning and heating and extensive on-site car parking.

The Glebe Road location gives good access to the east coast ports, M11, A1(M) and onwards to the M1/M6 interchange via the A14 - whose major upgrade is on schedule for completion next year (2020).

In a high profile commercial location in the town, nearby occupiers include manufacturing operators Steinhoff Beds, Dart Packaging and Hotel Chocolat.  In addition, this part of Huntingdon is home to a number of trade parks with established trade counter operators such as Travis Perkins and Wickes, among other leading names in the sector.

Stephen Power, Director, Barker Storey Matthews Huntingdon, who is leading the agency’s marketing of 18 Glebe Road, is anticipating a good level of interest in the building – particularly as it is available immediately.

He said, “This is a high profile instruction in Huntingdon and the calibre of its previous occupiers is reflected in the quality of the office accommodation and the factory areas. 

 “With this blend of commercial space and plenty of parking, plus its location with the A14/A1(M) nearby, 18 Glebe Road would make an ideal regional headquarters. 

 “Companies requiring more office and production space but not in a position to add additional accommodation to their existing facilities might find a solution in this latest Huntingdon instruction.”
