An ‘imposing’ office and industrial unit at Poundbury near Dorchester is attracting “significant interest”, according to agents.

Goadsby has been jointly instructed with Carter Jonas to market the 41,940 sq ft workspace which is on the Duchy of Cornwall estate.

The premises are currently vacant after the former occupant expanded and relocated to larger workspace in Poole to allow for further expansion.

The building contains 30,741 sq ft of industrial accommodation and 11,199 sq ft of offices with accompanying facilities, including a staff canteen, locker room and yard.

Alison Williams, Associate Partner of Carter Jonas, said “The workspace is an unrivalled opportunity for a business to secure a large, flexible space in an imposing brick building with obvious aesthetic appeal.

“The historic Duchy of Cornwall estate is a renowned brand in its own right and the new urban extension of Poundbury is one of the best examples of modern urban planning.

“This means that the premises are located in a truly exceptional environment with a good selection of local amenities, but it is still well-connected to the national transport network.

“We anticipate strong demand from a range of different businesses given the unique nature of this asset.”

The workspace is sited on Peverell Avenue East, close to local amenities including Little Waitrose.

Chris Wilson, Director, Goadsby, said: “It is highly unusual to be able to have a substantial modern, high bay HQ warehouse that can so comfortably sit alongside residential neighbours.

“There are a number of fabulous design features including windows, doors, gates, pillars and a superb second floor meeting room.

“Significant interest has already been received from a variety of businesses and investors and it is hoped that an early transaction can be concluded.”
