The Cigar Factory is an exciting mixed use building with Ground Floor space, suitable for conversion to a contemporary workspace, located at Raleigh Road Southville Bristol BS3 1QU.

Originally constructed in the 1900’s for use in the tobacco industry, developers Ellson Homes are refurbishing the building to provide 19 high quality apartments and a separate Ground Floor commercial unit of 4,700 sq. ft. / 437 sq. m., ready for fitting out. The accommodation provides highly versatile space and a layout that will permit subdivision or retention as open plan accommodation, in each case with an impressive self-contained entrance and good levels of natural light. The introduction of a mezzanine may be possible but is likely to require substantial works including lowering the floor level and excavation. The internal images plans and sections are purely conceptual. The accommodation is to be offered as a serviced shell finished unit ready to accept fitting out works. The Ground Floor is offered for sale on the basis of a new 999 year lease subject to a nominal ground rent. Consideration may be given to an occupational lease of the Ground Floor.
