20,000 sq ft of office space up for grabs in Derbyshire

Refurbishment work to transform the former St Mary’s Nursing Home in Ednaston is set to bring forward 20,000 sq ft of managed workspace when it opens next month.

Located off the A52 between Derby and Ashbourne, Ednaston Park is a period property dating back to the 19th Century set in 18 acres of gardens.

The building, which was operated as a nursing home until 2016, was bought by developer CWC Group in September 2017 and has been the subject of a major refurbishment to turn it into modern office accommodation.

Ednaston Park will include 20,000 sq ft of space in the form of 32 office suites ranging in size from 54 sq ft to 526 sq ft.

Lucy Delaney has been appointed business centre manager, while Ednaston Park will be managed by CWC Group, which recently relocated its headquarters there from Brailsford Hall.

Andrew Bock, director at the CWC Group, said: “There is currently no managed workspace provision of this quality in and around the Ashbourne area, which means that many small businesses may be having to work from home, or travel to other schemes in Derby and further afield.

“Ednaston Park will meet the growing demand from businesses looking for an alternative to city centre-based working and enable them to draw inspiration from this stunning location in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside.

“The ‘wow’ factor is already generating enquiries from businesses keen to take advantage of this unique opportunity to be located in one of the finest working environments in the region.”

Delaney added: “I look forward to welcoming our tenants and supporting them however I can as they grow their businesses. It’s a privilege to set foot in this beautifully refurbished period property every day and I’m sure the businesses that join us here will feel the same sense of pride.

“This character accommodation is set in a unique rural location, close to all major road links. Having undergone extensive refurbishment, many of the magnificent period features remain and work effortlessly alongside new high-quality fixtures and fittings, creating a luxury contemporary feel.”
