Property Location

Property Specification

The premises are located on Langham Barns Business Centre, an established development comprising 14 existing office units. The development is accessed form Langham Lane, which lies about one mile north of Colchester Business Park, to the north of Colchester. The A12 Colchester to Ipswich trunk route lies half a mile to the east.


The development is being constructed on a site to the east of the existing units, and will overlook fields and the site of the former Boxted Airfield, a World War 2 airfield. The development will comprise two blocks each arranged around a courtyard, with landscaped grounds and car parking. The elevations will be weatherboarding and brick under pitched slated roofs. Each unit will be fully self-contained, with two toilets (one disabled), a kitchenette and communications cupboards with storage above. There will be oak effect internal doors, skirting and architraves and oak finish vinyl plank flooring. Heating/cooling will be via air conditioning cassettes to the main office area.
