The subject property comprises a charming office building arranged on ground, first and second floors. The property is set behind a shallow forecourt with tunnel access to the rear private car park with parking for eight vehicles.
The buildings originally on the site of this property known as 23-31 Green, were constructed in 1780 by the Valentine Poole Trust. The buildings were saved from demolition by Southgate Civic Trust in the late 1970s and were reconstructed by Peake Estates Limited in 1981. The majority of the buildings in the redevelopment are in residential use but the subject property was reconstructed for office use in 1981. The facade incorporates two front entrance doors to maintain the appearance of what originally would have been a pair of adjoining cottages.
Although the building is about 31 years old it is nevertheless a Grade II Listed building characterised by its Georgian style facade and is in the Southgate Green Conservation Area. The construction materials however are modern and the property is built in cavity brickwork with stock facing bricks to the external elevations under a plain concrete tiled clad mansard roof. There is a small courtyard area between the two single storey back additions.
The building is constructed in a way which enables the office space to be more or less in open plan on each of the three levels. The location of the staircase and access points also means that each of the three levels of the building could be used as separate self contained suites with their own kitchen and toilet facilities.
At present the building is configured for single occupation and has been sub-partitioned at second floor level to provide a viewing facility for market research purposes. The first floor is an open plan office space with a small room (former kitchen) at the stairwell entrance. The ground floor is arranged as a reception area, kitchen, boardroom, office, toilet and shower facilities.
