Historic Manchester pub becomes new home of serviced office space
A husband and wife team have transformed a historic pub, which closed as a result of the recession, into modern serviced office space. According to the Manchester Evening News, the property, based in Middleton near Manchester, was converted at a cost of ┬ú500,000.
The couple, Paul and Natalie Dardick, are reportedly targeting start-up and small businesses, and have currently secured three tenants.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Natalie said: “The building itself is 400 years old in parts – as we discovered following an archaeological survey – and we’ve retained many of the original fixtures including old beams. But we’ve also turned it into a thoroughly modern facility which has fibre optic broadband and a boardroom.”
The couple are now looking for other properties to renovate. For more details on office space to rent in Manchester, Middleton or surrounding areas, go to officebroker.com to find and compare offices, and for free expert advice.
