Property Description

Full description

REDEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY - an important Grade 1 listed former town house offering 20,600 sq ft of offices and storage with large garden, barn and large private car park.

81 Guildhall Street is listed Grade I for its historical importance – a classic 18th-century town house with alterations and additions made from 1789 to1791 by the world-renowned architect, John Soane, for James Oakes, local banker and yarn merchant. Soanes’ alterations included a two-storey pedimented wing on either side of the original 5-bay red-brick house - a façade intended to convey status and grandeur, incorporating a pedimented doric porch in the centre of the old building, complemented by large Soane-called ‘Venetian’ tripartite windows on the ground floor of the new wings. The building was designed to accommodate the family and the bank, with the north wing designed as a counting house with a customers’ dining parlour above, whilst the south wing included the drawing room and family dining room.

More recently, there have been additional extensions to accommodate an expanding law firm who have, for many years, used the premises as offices. Now, due to the firm’s continued success, a move to even larger premises provides a rare opportunity to acquire the properties 81 and 82, known as 81 Guildhall Street, in its entirety, with gardens, a generous car park and a brick-and-flint barn with courtyard.

Briefly, the property comprises approximately 14,700 sq ft over the ground- and first floor, with extensive cellarage and attic rooms as well. It now perhaps offers an ideal opportunity to revert back entirely to a residential house or perhaps a house with office space, subject, of course, to the granting of the usual planning permission and listed buildings consents required for such an undertaking.
