Agents with their very own period properties – more beautiful offices

Who doesn’t like a beautiful period property with a bit of history and heritage?

Some agents clearly have so much enthusiasm for them that rather than just selling them, they work in them too, as our continuing search for the most beautiful estate agent offices reveals.

First of all, Paul Lucas, operations manager at Butters John Bee, sent us an image of the firm’s 16th century, Grade II-listed office in the town of Nantwich, Cheshire.

“With the second largest collection of historic buildings in the county, Nantwich can trace its origins right back to Roman times and was even mentioned in the Domesday Book,” Paul explains.

Even in Nantwich, there can’t be all that many historic buildings with a bright yellow front door, though.

Meanwhile, Vicki Wright, partner at Henry Adams, which has 16 offices across Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, sent us this image of its Storrington branch in West Sussex.

The Georgian building is well over 200 years old and was once thought to be the finest home in the village. The last private resident moved out in 1930 and the building entered a new phases as commercial premises, Vicki tells us.

Acquired by Douglas Ross, estate agents, the first-floor rooms were leased to solicitors and the gardens at the front turned into car parking. Henry Adams has been using it as an office for the last 20 years, and coincidentally, solicitors still operate upstairs.

We’ve already received plenty of examples of beautiful offices. Please keep them coming and we’ll continue to feature them on EYE.
