This open plan space is linked to the hallway via double doors.  The hall also provides access to the west facing two main reception rooms; the dining room with two sets of French doors and fireplace, while the drawing room benefits from a bay window and period stone fireplace. Both are faithful to their era, balanced rooms with high ceilings and cornice, which are found throughout the property.

A unique solution to breaking the humdrum of WFH (working from home)?

10/06/2021

As the world starts to wake up from the restrictions of lockdown and the initial (for some) novelty of working from home (WFH) begins to subside, businesses and their employees start to address the new balance and possibilities surrounding home v’s office working or even a mixture of both.

For business owners, ‘both’ can look expensive; a desk which is only used half the time but still necessary and all the WFH infrastructure you must also provide your employees to enable them to do both.  If you retain the same ‘desk space’ it means that you must occupy as large a premises as before the pandemic and therefore the same overheads (utilities, business rates, reception staff … the list goes on). 

We think we have just the solution!  - A serviced office within a renowned Grade II* Listed Georgian building in the centre of Shrewsbury Town with excellent internet connectivity. 

Two offices have been released to the rental market at Windsor House, an impressive property nestled just off the main High Street, overlooking St Mary’s Church, the River Severn and Shropshire Hills. The managed serviced premises include a receptionist, plus availability of one of the fastest broadband connections in town; 100 upload/100 download. 

Balfours agent, Charlotte White explains: “For anyone seeking to create a positive impression Windsor House offers great benefits to any business. Not only is there the grandeur of the property itself but also the welcoming greeting from the long-standing and highly thought of receptionist as all employees’ and clients’ alike enter.   The building itself boasts stunning architecture, including ornate oak panelling, strengthening the authenticity of businesses within.

Not only for physical meetings within the business premises, but the Receptionist is also able to take and divert internal/external calls and book meeting rooms – exactly what a small, medium or ‘satellite hub’ office of a larger business could need to facilitate an evolving way of working, such as ‘hot-desking’.

For many it is time to embrace the new balance of home and office working and this opportunity may just enable that balance to work!

Windsor House offers very competitive rates for serviced offices.  For more information call Charlotte White, on 01743 241181.
