The freehold of a business unit in Newmarket has been sold to Musk’s Ltd - the makers of the original Newmarket sausage - confirms Barker Storey Matthews who acted as the sole agent on behalf of the vendor in the transaction.


Unit 7 Acorn Business Centre on Fordham Road, Newmarket is within an established business located in the Suffolk town. The 583 sqm (6,276 sq ft) industrial unit will be used as production space with ancillary office and storage accommodation.

The sale was led by Laurence Gercke of Barker Storey Matthews who comments, “Across the wider region over the last couple of years there has been a shortage of availability of freehold industrial units but demand has been good.

“This has resulted in industrial values increasing by some margin and marketing periods have been reduced.  

“The sale of Unit 7 exceeded our quoting price which is evidence of the strength of the market.”
