Alder King appointed to market former Council headquarters in Thornbury
Property consultancy Alder King has been appointed by South Gloucestershire Council to market Stokefield House, the Council’s former headquarters building on Castle Street in Thornbury.
The three storey modern office building, built in 1986, provides 45,000 sq ft of mainly open-plan accommodation. It sits on a 2.56 acre landscaped site with 90 car parking spaces and a rear service area and is within easy walking distance of the market town’s shops and other amenities.
Stokefield House was occupied by the Council as offices until its relocation to new headquarters at Yate in 2012. Alder King is now offering the property on a freehold sale or leasehold basis and suggests that, as well as its primary function of offices, the property also lends itself to conversion to residential, education or care home use, subject to planning.
Simon Price, head of agency at Alder King, said: “There has been a resurgence of demand for offices in North Bristol over the past 12 months, resulting in a steady reduction in stock. The entry of Stokefield House onto the market now offers local occupiers a genuine option to consider.
“However the property is very versatile and in a desirable residential location and would therefore be attractive to occupiers from other sectors of the market.”
