Barker Storey Matthews is the sole agent instructed to let two properties for D1 occupation in central Cambridge.  Both properties have immediate past use as language schools and are available immediately.

The larger of the properties is at 8 Grange Road, Cambridge and offers 709 sq m (7,632 sq ft) of classroom, office and ancillary space across three floors and a basement store. 

The building sits within a gravelled setting, formerly the gardens of the house, where there is parking for around eight vehicles, plus cycle racks and amenity areas.  There are security gates and CCTV.

There is a ground floor reception area, numerous classrooms, offices and staff rooms and a large canteen area.

Previously a large, private residential house, the converted and extended property is at the Barton Road side of Grange Road, close to the popular Newnham residential area of the city.  Junction 12 of the M11 is 1.25 miles away.   

Grange Road connects Barton Road with Madingley Road, where one of the city’s Park and Ride locations is situated.  Two university colleges are on Grange Road and a number of other university-related buildings and the private, King’s College and St John’s College Schools.

The second of Barker Storey Matthews’ D1 property instructions is within Guildhall Chambers on Guildhall Place in the historic city centre.

With its own dedicated entrance off Guildhall Place, this self-contained property offers 148 sq m (1,590 sq ft) of accommodation across the first and second floors of the building.  There is a reception area at first floor level, with the rest of the space sub-divided in to a number of rooms previously used for classroom and office purposes.

The property to let is above Honest Burger restaurant and in the heart of what has become one of Cambridge’s main ‘foodie’ quarters.   The Lion Yard and The Grand Arcade and the Market Square, nearby, provide additional food and drink, retail and leisure amenities.

According to Ben Green of Barker Storey Matthews, D1 premises do not often come forward to the market and for two properties to come through as letting instructions at the same time is quite rare.

He said, “These properties are in prime, central Cambridge locations.  While immediate past uses have been as language schools, D1 use can meet a number of educational, community or medical and therapeutic requirements.”

Viewing of 8 Grange Road or Guildhall Chambers, Cambridge is strictly by appointment through Barker Storey Matthews as the sole agent.
