Farnham Estates Limited, advised by Curchod & Co, has let 5,303 sq ft of retail warehouse space at Hawthorn House, Romans Business Park in East Street, Farnham, Surrey to Parker Fine Art Auctions.
The property has been taken on a ten-year lease at an annual rent of £75,000 (£14.00 per sq ft).
Matthew Seary of Curchod & Co said: “Located in a prominent position the two-storey property has excellent natural daylight and good on-site car parking, making it ideal for an auctioneer.”
“For Auction Houses and Galleries, the light and atmosphere of a building are essential. Hawthorn House offers Parker Fine Art Auctions these in abundance” said auctioneer, Buffy Parker.
Fine Painting Auctions are held monthly and exhibitions of works by contemporary artists and charity exhibitions will be filling the walls when the auctions aren’t on view.
“With around 500 Lots in each sale, space was an essential part of finding the perfect venue. Hawthorn House is the perfect showcase and has given us the ability to fill the walls with works which will range from 15th Century engravings to contemporary artists’ installations and everything in between” added Henny Smith, a director at Parker Fine Art Auctions.
Being in Central Farnham offers a central location for buyers and vendors throughout the UK, but with the auctions online as well as live, international buyers will find it helpful with the links to London and elsewhere in the UK.
The first sale is to be held on 3rd September, with Parker Fine Art Auctions will open for valuations and to consigners from 1st July.
