September 25, 2014, 11:42 am

Haarer Goss has been instructed to let Unit 6, Trade City, Apple Lane, Exeter.

These modern trade counter premises are prominently situated on the Trade City Estate overlooking the Sidmouth Road on the outskirts of Exeter.  Less than a minute from Junction 30 of the M5, Unit 6 occupies a highly visible site on one of the busiest arterial roads, offering an outstanding advertising opportunity for the occupier.  The premises form part of a terrace with neighbouring occupiers including Original Style Factory Shop, Stalite Signs, Aspect Windows, National Plastics and Mid Devon Tyres.  The premises are currently owner occupied by John Holt Beds.

Unit 6 is a well-presented trade counter unit of steel portal frame construction with low maintenance insulated profile steel cladding to the walls and roof (with translucent roof lights fitted).  The front elevation incorporates double glazed display windows with a pedestrian access to the trade counter & reception area.  The main warehouse is fitted with a 4m high x 3m wide (approximately 13’ x 10’) roller shutter door providing good clear loading access for deliveries.

Internally, the property has a power floated concrete floor (750lb loading capacity) and a height of approximately 5.5m (18’) to the underside of the steel haunch and 6m (20’) to the eaves.  The warehouse benefits from concrete blockwork perimeter walls to a height of 1.95m (6’ 4’) for added security and to prevent impact damage to the cladding.  The unit is presented in exceptional condition as it has been solely used for clean storage and distribution since its original construction.

There is a useful manager’s office 4.57m x 3.55m (15’ x 11’ 6’) and single WC at this level.

The current owners have installed a high quality mezzanine floor which provides an attractive retailing display area and has a wide staircase leading from the front of the premises for public access.  There is a separate ’staff only’ staircase at the rear which provides access to two offices at this level.  Office 1 is 3.22m x 2.81m (10’6’ x 9’ 2’) and Office 2 is 2.77m x 2.81m m (9’ 1’ x 9’ 2’).

A good quality suspended ceiling (incorporating refractive lighting and smoke detectors) has been installed below the mezzanine floor, providing a well let clean environment, and full standing headroom has been maintained throughout.

In total Unit 6 provides 620 sq.m (6,674 sq.ft) of accommodation, comprising warehouse of 465.75 sq.m (5,013 sq.ft) together with a good quality steel frame mezzanine floor providing a further 154.27 sq.m (1,661 sq.ft) of sales and ancillary space.

Externally, the premises are served by the communal Estate Road which leads to the allocated concrete surfaced yard immediately in front of the unit.  The front yard together with tarmac surfaced car parking area opposite, provides approximately 10 car parking spaces.

These premises are available on a new contributory Full Repairing and Insuring lease at a rent of £36,500 per annum exclusive.
