SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED. GOOD DEMAND FOR FREEHOLD COMMERCIAL PROPERTY. ! Most recently occupied as engineering works with associated storage including open storage and offices

DESCRIPTION/LOCATION:  The property has a long-established commercial history.  With direct frontage to Sandhurst Road and approached over a 150 ft approx private driveway, it is a rectangular in shape plot with four detached buildings. To the left-hand side of the driveway and towards the rear there is two storey building, with the ground floor occupied until very recently as engineering works with associated offices and storage on the first floor.  Immediately opposite on the other side of the driveway is a detached brick and tile building, suitable for use as light engineering, warehouse or offices. Just beyond this building is a prefabricated garage. The fourth building on the site is detached, of blockwork construction beneath a tiled roof and could be used for various business uses.

Alternatively, the site might be considered suitable for redevelopment. nb. A recent application for 6 townhouses and 6 flats over three floors has been refused.

Glendale Works is a little more than 150 yards from Crowthorne High Street which offers a good range of shops, including some niche shops and others represented in many High Streets throughout the country.

Just to the south is the M3 (J4) on the outskirts of Camberley/Frimley.  Just a short journey to the east and it links with the M25 - so Glendale Works is well placed for access to motorways and also Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

This really is an exceptional location for a business.
