Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

The property comprises a detached industrial building most recently used by the Fire Service as a vehicle maintenance facility. It is of steel framed construction with cavity brickwork and profile steel cladding to the external elevations and a northlight roof which has an insulated corrugated asbestos cement sheet covering with glazed rooflights.
The workshop area has concrete floors throughout and an internal clear height of 3.68m. The building has been adapted for vehicle maintenance purposes with the introduction of a series of vehicle inspection pits in the floor and three vehicle access doors leading to the main service yard on the west. There are further loading doors to the north and east elevations as well as a small mezzanine area constructed within the workshop.
To the front of the workshop is a two storey office and ancillary block which is also of cavity brick construction under a flat mineral felt covered roof. It provides welfare space at both levels and a series of general and private offices although has not been occupied for some time and is in need of renovation.
Externally there is a perimeter roadway to the southern, eastern and northern boundaries of the property which provides parking and some vehicle circulation with the main service yard being on the west side of the property via a shared access road. The main service yard has a high security Hercules fence with gated access and cacti rollers to the top. There is also an area outside the fenced yard which has historically been used for HGV and car parking.
The property appears to benefit from all mains services including a three phase electricity supply.
Whilst there are heating systems within both the office and workshop space, they are of a considerable age and unlikely to be operable.
Lighting to both the workshop and office space is by fluorescent strips.


The property occupies a prominent location at the junction of Saltmeadows Road and Albany Road on the popular and well established East Gateshead Industrial Estate which lies immediately to the east of Gateshead town centre and is easily accessible from the A184 Felling By Pass.
