New Commercial Development
9 Premium Units To Let

Church Barns, Ware Road, Widford, Hertfordshire, Sg12 8rl

We are delighted to bring to the market a stunning new commercial development 3 miles east of the historic market town of Ware in Hertfordshire. Located within a glorious rural setting and enjoying stunning views across parkland, the site offers a range of premium offices and storage units. In a joint collaboration between the management of the Easneye Estate and its architects, Church Barns has been created through the well-crafted conversion of traditional agricultural buildings. The site is due to be completed in early 2020.

The site offers 9 differently sized units, each with its own distinctive character and layout. The buildings have been designed very much with the modern business user in mind, offering flexible space to suit a variety of business uses. The site offers generous parking, landscaped communal areas, high-speed broad band and modern facilities.

Situated in East Hertfordshire, Church Barns is located less than 3 miles from the popular market town of Ware on the B1004. The location is convenient for Hertford, Bishops Stortford, Cambridge and North London.
