Carter Towler and Sanderson Weatherall have just successfully completed the purchase and letting of International House, Guiseley and Carter Towler will also be responsible for managing the property.
The chartered surveyors purchased the 7,292 sq ft warehouse on Ghyll Royd, South View Business Park on behalf of a long-standing client from White & Co Removals with Sanderson Weatherall’s agency team acting on behalf of the vendors.
International House was then refurbished before being marketed and let to Screw Fix in a 10 year lease deal negotiated by industrial agency divisions the Sanderson Weatherall and Carter Towler.
Jonathan White of Sanderson Weatherall commented: “We were delighted to be able to sign up a blue-chip tenant for the new purchaser. A national occupier such as Screwfix is great news for the local area as it will undoubtedly deliver a boost to the economy and provide jobs locally. We’re experiencing strong demand for industrial property in the local area currently, which is evidenced by acquisition and letting of International House.”
Commenting on the string of deals Charter Towler director Matthew Faulkes said: “This has been a fantastic project for us to work on as it shows just how effective our divisions are collectively. The whole process from completing the acquisition deal through to the subsequent lease and property management agreement has been absolutely seamless.
“I am really proud of the strength and breadth of the services we are able to provide but more importantly our client is delighted to have added a new modern warehouse to their property portfolio that has fantastic blue chip, long term tenant and he can rest assured the property and tenancy will be meticulously managed.”
The two-storey unit is close to the A65 and is directly to the rear of the Westfield Retail Park whose occupiers include McDonald’s, Halfords, Costa Coffee, Next and Argos. In addition to warehouse space it has office accommodation, parking for 9 vehicles and a secure yard.
