Commercial People has learned of a historic canal pumping station in Milton Keynes, which has been transformed into offices as part of a £700,000 refurbishment project.
Marketed by commercial property consultants Kirkby Diamond, the firm believes that businesses looking for unique offices with a waterside setting will be interested in the Soulbury Pumping Station.
Commenting on the project, Kirkby Diamond Surveyor Nick Bosworth said: “This really has been a labour of love by the Canal & River Trust and they have created wonderful offices in a unique and attractive setting. We confidently expect a high level of interest from local firms looking for premises with lots of character in a lovely location.”
Using specialist heritage techniques, teams from the Canal & River Trust have repaired and rebuilt the Grade II-listed pump house in keeping with its original character.
The split-level offices extend to 1,378 sq ft and provide a reception area, offices with vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers, a toilet, kitchen, and parking at the nearby pub.
