Ben Nicholson

A 40,000 sq ft industrial/warehouse unit next to Hearthcote Road, Swadlincote, has been bought by a mystery investor.

The deal, brokered by Burley Browne, involved a sale and leaseback to the unnamed client at price of over £3m.

Ben Nicholson, senior associate director at Burley Browne, said: “We are thrilled to have been able to secure the sale and leaseback of these well-presented premises on behalf of our client.

“Following receipt of instructions, we commenced off-market negotiations with parties during a difficult and uncertain economic period in the last quarter of 2022. Despite the uncertainty, this sale clearly demonstrates that the market remains buoyant and that industrial warehouse investment opportunities still command confidence, generating competing bids from potential buyers.

“We are delighted that we were able to secure completion of the sale in a well-managed time frame to avoid any disruption to our client’s business operation.”
