A Closer Look: Cams Hill, Fareham
The serviced office industry is home to business centres of all shapes and sizes, from small city centre conversions and high-rise office towers, to modern purpose-built properties on elite business parks.
One of the most intriguing and beautiful locations listed in the officebroker.com portfolio of serviced offices is that of Cams Hall – a 300-year-old mansion located on Cams Hill in Fareham, overlooking Portsmouth Harbour.
The grounds surrounding the Grade II listed property have a complex history that even warranted a mention in the Domesday Book of 1086, and a manor house was recorded on the site as far back as the 13th century. The existing building was built in the 1770s, designed by architect Jacob Leroux, but later fell into disrepair during the 1950s and eventually became listed as a derelict building.
The property was rescued some years later and by the 1990s it was fully restored, bringing its period features back to their former glory and introducing modern touches that make it a superb yet practical location for small and medium sized businesses.
With contemporary facilities such as impressive meeting space, video conferencing equipment, high spec telecommunications and on-site IT support, the property creates a modern business environment with the added benefits of plenty of nearby leisure facilities, including an adjoining golf club and the Solent’s ever-popular yachting scene.
officebroker.com Account Manager Alastair Maloney, who handles enquiries for office space in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas, visited the centre last month and was very complimentary of the location and fit-out of the building.
“It’s a brilliant building in an amazing location,” he said. “The reception area is impressive, the space and fittings are very high spec and the staff are very friendly and efficient too.”
The centre is situated just off the A27 near the M27 motorway, on the edge of Fareham.
