Completion has just taken place on these prestigious self-contained ground floor offices at 13 Southernhay West, Exeter.

Situated on a prominent corner of Southernhay West and Cathedral Close, this property offers one of the finest locations within Exeter’s traditional prime office district.  The front entrance to these offices is located in Cathedral Close, opposite Jackson-Stops (specialists in country and equestrian property agency), Bonhams auctioneers and valuers and just around the corner from Crosse & Crosse solicitors.  Southernhay has been long established as the central business district of the City and these offices are at the heart of this prestigious area and en-route to the Cathedral and the wonderful historic buildings which surround the Cathedral Green.  

These ground floor offices form part of 13-15 Southernhay West which have been occupied by well-established lawyers, Crosse & Crosse for many years.  Strategic changes within this law firm have led to the release of this accommodation, which is now being offered as a self-contained office suite with its own front door.  The attractive entrance doorway leads via two steps up into the entrance lobby from which a short flight of stairs opens into the spacious office reception which would comfortably provide a seated waiting area.  There are two main offices; office 1 situated at the front of the building, which is a very large room full of original period character with high moulded plaster ceilings and beautiful sash windows overlooking Southernhay.  This lovely light room measures 6.91m x 5.12m (22’ 8” x 16’ 9”) with the ceiling some 3.4m (11’ 2”) from the floor.  New LED lighting is being installed as part of the refurbishment works prior to re-letting, which will sympathetically supplement the available natural day light during the winter months.

The second well-proportioned office is also adjacent to the reception area and provides another impressive room with retained period features including a moulded plaster ceiling, part panelled walls around the large bay window and a cast iron fireplace.  The room measures approximately 5.44m x 3.42m (17’ 10” x 11’ 3”). 

In addition to the office accommodation there are staff welfare facilities comprising a staff kitchenette and restroom with separate male and female WCs.  These are accessed from the entrance lobby.

A rent of £16,000 pa was sought inclusive of car parking.
