Commercial agent brings three Swindon properties to market

Written by Peter Davison.

1 Commercial RoadProperty agent Kilpatrick & Co has brought three new properties on Swindon's busy Commercial Road to market.

The firm has been instructed to manage 1, 18-22, and 53 Commercial Road – bringing to five its portfolio on the same road, two of which are already under offer.

1 Commercial Road part of a three-storey building is a virtual freehold comprising the entire ground floor with its entrance onto Commercial Road and side windows onto Eastcott Hill.

Currently set out as open plan offices, totalling 1,087 sq ft, the configuration also includes meeting rooms, staffroom, toilets, and storage facilities at basement level and with the added bonus of two car parking spaces at the rear. The long leasehold of 999 years is available at an asking price of £160,000.

With the relocation and departure of Office Angels from Commercial Road, No. 18-22, totalling 1,718 sq ft is also set out as open plan and rear partitioned offices and meeting rooms accompanied by a staff room/kitchenette with male and female toilets.

There are two car parking spaces to the rear and while the property is currently suitable for continued A2 business use this could be converted to retail as a whole or possibly subdivided into 2 units. The asking rent is £35,000 per annum

Kilpatrick & Co is no stranger to the last of the trio, having completed the freehold sale back in 2018. No. 53 Commercial Road has been completely refurbished and the landlord has converted the rear and upper parts of the property to residential, leaving a ground floor A1 retail shop available to rent at an asking rent of £12,000 per annum.

The shop of 324 sq ft retains its prominent display window to Commercial Road and return frontage to Morse Street and would be suitable for any retail use. Both the exterior and interior of the property has been refurbished with a new shop front, door and side windows installed with a new tiled floor, redecorations and toilet to the rear.

“It is very exciting for us to have the opportunity to market these three new properties to our agency department. All the property details, including particulars are available to download from our website at" said office manager Daniel Pitt.
