Turning a new leaf – that’s Oriel House in Colchester, the former offices of the Essex County Standard, which is being opened to the public to showcase its redevelopment as 24 stunning apartments.
haart estate agent’s First Time Buyer and New Homes Centre, which is marketing Oriel House, will be holding the open day on Saturday 16th May between 10am and 5pm for anyone who is interested in viewing the luxury apartments.
The mixture of one and two bed apartments, meticulously redeveloped by SBLiving, are for sale from £122,500. The properties have a variety of terraces, balconies and split level layouts and come with a wealth of design features.
David Knight, Branch Manager of haart’s High Street centre, said: “We are very excited to be marketing this fantastic development, especially because of its place in Colchester’s history.
“Where once there was a busy newsroom and journalists working on their scoops, there are now peaceful and modern apartments right in the town centre.
“Oriel House, where the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme is available, is the perfect fit for a wide range of people including first time buyers, young professionals and commuters, as it is within walking distance of Colchester North and Colchester Town stations.
“The building has been redeveloped sympathetically with the inspiration of the design taken from its previous life as a newspaper office, with the ‘Oriel’ feature window at the front of the building being retained.
“We would urge anyone who is interested in purchasing one of these apartments to come along to the open day on Saturday as I’m sure they will be snapped up quickly.”
The Essex County Standard and sister newspaper the Daily Gazette are now edited in new offices in Brunel Way.
