When English Heritage needed to re-let a substantial property in February this year it wasn’t clear from which sector the next occupier would come. Add to this the first lockdown effective in March and there was a possibility of a long void.
Situated adjacent to the medieval and Tudor gem which is Eltham Palace, the property was originally built as a military school but had been used as offices and a language college in its lifetime.
Hindwoods agency team quickly established the suitability of the building, which benefits from parking and self-contained gardens, for a specialist school and tailored a marketing campaign accordingly.
Within a few weeks several offers came forward and a terms were agreed with a suitable occupier providing inclusive education opportunities to young people who have a diagnosis of Autism and related difficulties. The deal was completed by June.
