PROMINENT LISTED CITY CENTRE OFFICE BUILDING SOLD
A prominent character office building in Norwich has changed hands in a £640,000 deal.
St Mary’s Croft, an ornate Victorian three-storey building in Chapelfield North, has been sold to a firm of chiropractors, who will occupy the building after extensive refurbishment. The deal was brokered by Arnolds Keys, who say its completion despite the coronavirus crisis shows that there is still a market for freehold city-centre offices.
The 3,884 sq ft Grade II listed building was built in 1881 in the Tudor revival style, incorporating the walls of an earlier building. It was for many years a dental practice, but has more recently been used as offices.
“We are delighted to have completed the sale of this prominent building, which went onto the market just weeks before lockdown started,” said Arnolds Keys managing partner Guy Gowing.
“The fact that we have been able to complete the deal despite the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 shows that there is still a fundamental underlying demand for quality office space in the city.”
As well as extensive offices across three floors, with two large balconies with views across Chapelfield Gardens, the building has a generous car park.
