Sought after prominent location on Pennygillam Way close to A30


The building is of modern construction consisting of concrete block and steel frame with composite panels. The walls are rendered externally at ground floor and of insulated powder coated metal sheeting at higher level. There are skylights set in the roof providing good levels of natural light. An office and reception/trade counter extension occupy the front of the unit and there is a significant external yard with parking for approximately 8 vehicles.  The existing use class is understood to be Class B2 (general industrial) although the property would be suitable for various alternative uses (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents).


The property is accessed from Pennygillam Way, which is the primary arterial route through the estate and has a constant busy flow of traffic passing. The property is set down below the road within a secure fenced compound which is shared with an adjoining unit. The fence and advertising frame to the front of the unit together with the top of the building can be used for advertising (subject to planning rules). The building is accessed by pedestrians from the parking area via a short ramp leading to the trade counter/reception area or for vehicles by a large electric roller shutter door (clear width 3.80m and height of 4.06m) directly to the main area of the unit. The trade counter/reception area leads to an office and enlarged toilet facility and kitchenette. There is a door linking the main area (5.3m to eaves and 7.3m to ridge) to the other areas. There is a fire exit door leading to a small fenced area to the rear of the unit which could potentially be used for additional outdoor storage.
