A unique and stylish detached office development, which is within walking distance of Oxford’s City centre and has the opportunity for businesses to design their own working environment, has been officially launched by commercial property agencies Carter Jonas and VSL.

Harcourt House is surrounded by landscaped grounds and parkland and is located on Marston Road, Oxford providing easy access to both the city centre and ring road with the unusual benefit of plentiful on site car parking

The building will undergo a substantial refurbishment and remodeling programme with the aim of being able to provide an individual, stimulating and flexible working environment. Prospective tenants will be able to tailor the building to their needs, giving them unique Grade A office accommodation with contemporary stylish finishes.

Harcourt House totals 17,979 sq ft (1,670 sq m) over two floors and will be available on new institutional lease terms by negotiation.

Jon Silversides, partner at Carter Jonas said: “Rarely does office space come to the market close to Oxford’s City centre offering the combination of ample car parking, great transport connections and the ability for tenants to create their own bespoke office environment. The office space will be adaptable to open plan or cellular layout, giving complete flexibility to the future office tenants.

“Demand for prime office space in the City centre is strong with availability limited and rents having recently reached £24.00 per sq ft for existing stock. We anticipate that Harcourt House’s location, and its opportunity to specify the finish, will be highly appealing to businesses looking for superb, bespoke City centre office space.”

Harcourt House’s redevelopment will include: a new stone portico entrance, impressive double height atrium reception, exposed brickwork internal walls, first floor ceilings open to the eaves, excellent natural light via opening windows and roof lights, and a finishes package to compliment occupier requirements.

Richard Venables at VSL added: “With Harcourt House, it’s difficult to think of another example of such carefully designed space within the City, and with ample parking. The initial designs will transform this building, creating a spectacular opportunity for prospective tenants to really make their mark, whilst being located in Oxford’s City and enjoying everything that this great City has to offer.”
