ONE of the most prominent modern buildings in Newtownards is on the market.

Strangford House, headquarters of Hughes Insurance, is up for sale with a price tag of £3m.

At the start of the pandemic staff from Hughes began working from home and it is understood the firm has decided to continue with this arrangement rather than moving staff back into the prominent building, which is located beside the Comber Road roundabout.

Strangford House includes two interconnected buildings of around 17,000 sq ft and 18,500 sq ft, with a total of 185 car park spaces.

“Strangford House extends to over 35,000 sq ft on a highly prominent self-contained site,” said Richard McCaig, director of Osborne King which is handling the sale.

“The property is fitted to an excellent standard throughout with fully fitted offices, superb staff amenities and also benefits from 185 car parking spaces.

“This is an excellent opportunity for an owner occupier or investor to acquire a modern well maintained building in a highly visible location.”

Both buildings are finished to a high standard including raised access floors, air conditioning, LED lights, natural light throughout and lift access.

Staff amenities include a kitchen, breakout facilities and games room.
