Full Property Description
First City House is located fronting onto Waterloo Road, Wolverhampton within an established professional office sector of the City, which has traditionally been the location for such occupiers as Solicitors, Surveyors and Financial Consultants.
First City House was built circa 1970 for Eagle Star Insurance by Henry Willcock, a well known local builder who was responsible for the construction of other prestigious public buildings such as Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall and Public Library.
The property is of five storey construction with stone façade, set behind a paved forecourt.
Access to the building is through an imposing reception area. To the rear of the premises is a private car park with a rear entrance door to the lower ground floor.
The premises have been subject to some significant improvements including upgraded toilet accommodation and the carpeting of all staircases, halls and landings.
The third floor suite is approximately 120m2, which equates to approximately 1,250 sqft.
The suite is currently divided to form three large rooms and a server room but can be reconfigured to suit tenant’s requirements. It has suspended ceilings and floors are covered with carpet tiles.
