The freehold sale of a period property in the small, Cambridgeshire town of Godmanchester is being marketed by the Huntingdon office of commercial property agent, Barker Storey Matthews who advises that, alternatively, self-containted office space within the property is available to lease.

The two storey, traditional timber framed and rendered property is at 49 Post Street, Godmanchester.  Exensions have been added to the rear of the building.

The most recent occupier was an accountancy practice who re-located to St Neots.  The property is in a prominent location in the town’s centre and a short distance from nearby Huntingdon town centre and Godmanchester’s own central and riverside amenities. 

In a total space of 165.59 sq m (1,783 sq ft), the property, in its current office configuration, is mostly open plan accommodation on the ground floor plus kitchen, male and female cloakrooms and a file store.

There is additional office/storage space on the first floor but the accommodation at this level is mainly given over to a two bedroom residential flat which is accessed separately and let by way of a shorthold tenancy agreement, providing rental income, according to the agent.  To the rear of 49 Post Street is a courtyard with additional buildings suitable for office or storage use.

Barker Storey Matthews advises that the style, configuration and footprint of this property could lend itself to residential conversion, subject to planning permission and would also suit an occupier seeking a freehold property investment.  The current owner has been in possession of the freehold of 49 Post Street for 15 years.

Alternatively, the opportunity to lease the existing commercial accommodation at 49 Post Street would suit an office occupier looking for traditional offices in period premises, near to commuting and extensive transport links.

Stephen Power of Barker Storey Matthews’ Huntingdon office, adds, “Commuter links to Cambridge by the upgraded A14 trunk road or by rail to London King’s Cross via Huntingdon will add to this property’s appeal as a long term property investment to potential buyers - whether for commercial occupation or residential conversion.”

Viewing is strictly by appointment through Barker Storey Matthews as the sole agent.
