St Edburg’s Hall Bicester Ready for Gothic Revival!
St Edburg’s Hall, a significant three-storey stone-built building dating from 1882 has been sympathetically refurbished by its new owners Point of Difference providing modern quality offices and glazed balcony level totalling 2,155 sq ft. White Commercial are now marketing the available suites.
The building, designed by Edward Bruton (1826-1899), a Gothic revival architect, was opened in 1882. The original interior consisted of a large entrance hall, reading room, lecture room and a large first floor gallery capable of seating 400 people. The building was intended as parocial accomodation for Bicester’s community activities and in the winter of 1896, it acted as a soup kitchen for the poor and needy. In the early 1900’s the lecture rooms were being used for woodwork, drawing, cookery and shorthand instruction. (© Copyright 2009-2021 – Bicester Local History Society).
Natural light and period features make the property an iconic office space.
The premises are situated only 5 minutes walk from the famous Bicester Village retail shopping outlet, attracting over 6 million visitors each year, the main London to Birmingham and Oxford Chiltern Rairway line and Bicester town centre.
Chris White of White Commercial states “These offices recently sold by White Commercial’s client to Point of Difference have been fully refurbished providing excellent office accommodation in an excellent location in Bicester. Bicester Village, Oxford and the excellent railway service to London Birmingham and Oxford make the offices very accessible. We are experiencing considerable expansion in Bicester and in the region generally and with a significant shortage of available quality offices to support this growth.”
