Hurstwood Holdings – the Manchester-based investment and development company – has boosted its growing £150 million property portfolio following the acquisition of Universal House, a 23,705 sq ft office building for an undisclosed sum.  The modern headquarter building is fully let to Bentley Motors Limited on a long term lease.


The three-storey building is situated on a 4.13-acre site on the popular Midpoint 18 Business Park, which is close to junction 18 of the M6 motorway and is home to a number of blue-chip occupiers including Optima Logistics, B&M Bargains, Wincanton, Kuehne and Nagel, and Scottish Power.


Stephen Ashworth, Chairman of Hurstwood Holdings, comments: “As a nationwide commercial property investor, we manage more than 650 occupiers over 100 sites across the country and we are especially pleased to add a first-class business such as Bentley to our growing list of top quality clients.”


Avison Young acted on behalf of Hurstwood Holdings with Gateley‘s providing the legal advice.  The vendor, a private investor, was represented by B8.
