Historic Upshire Property Joins officebroker.com
A historic estate featuring a range of serviced space in superb surroundings has recently joined the officebroker.com portfolio.
Located in Upshire in Essex, sandwiched between the market towns of Epping and Waltham Abbey, the Grade II listed property and its grounds are part of the Upshire Conservation Area within Epping Forest – an area of ancient woodland and heath covering over 6,000 acres.
The property itself, a former mansion, dates back to the late 1700s and served as a home to various families and owners over the centuries, until it was bought by Dr. Barnado’s Homes circa 1920 and converted into a school. Later, in the early 1960s, a swimming pool was donated for the resident children.
The buildings form part of the estate which derives its name from Richard de Warley, a major landowner during the early 14th century. Upon changing hands to the Morgan family in the 18th century the grounds were landscaped and in later years, when the estate came into ownership of the Buxtons, much of the land was held back although the house and gardens were then transferred to Dr. Barnardos.
Much of the original grass and woodland surrounding the property is now managed by the City of London council, while the House and buildings are privately owned.
A number of key landmarks can be found in and around the estate such as The Temple, constructed out of Portland Stone, which is now classed as a scheduled Ancient Monument.
Today much of the property is utilised by businesses both for office space and as a conference venue. Impressive architecture and superb landscaped gardens aside, the property offers modern facilities and furnished suites which are available for small and medium sized businesses on flexible terms.
Location is a key factor, as businesses are within just a few miles of several train and underground stations, making Central London accessible within half an hour. It is also situated just off J26 of the M25.
