Parkway Court is one of Plymouths most popular out of town office parks close to Marsh Mills and the Devon Expressway.

Mike Oldrieve, head of Vickery Holman’s Investment Department, comments:
“The property investment market has seen values rise over the past 12 months due to the lack of quality stock.  Fortunately offices which suffered most in the recession are still looking undervalued and to get an 8% plus return secured for a 10 year period looks very attractive for our clients.  This follows hard on the heels of Vale House at Pynes Hill, Exeter, an office investment which Vickery Holman have recently sold”.

The Vendors were advised by the Bristol Office of Alder King.
