Motor Trade Complex, Outer Circle Road, Lincoln, LN2 4LD


The property comprises an extensive motor-trade complex that has been upgraded/refurbished over the years and currently provides 3 car sales showrooms, workshops, bodyshops, valeting bays, parts stores, mezzanine storage, offices, staff and wc facilities.

The showrooms have suspended ceilings with inset lighting and air conditioning in 2 of the 3 areas, painted plastered walls, display windows and tiled floors. The main workshop and stores have sealed concrete floors and either blockwork or stud walls but the ‘Masterfit’ workshop is tiled providing a higher quality of finish. A mezzanine storage area extends over the central section of the property providing additional parts storage accessed by two metal staircases.

At the rear of the workshops is a small two storey section accommodating a staff room and locker room at first floor level. Administrative accommodation is housed within the three storey brick built, partially cement rendered, ‘tower’ at the front of the property. Valeting facilities are housed within booths sited in a partially open sided area adjacent to the workshops at the rear of the property and a detached workshop building to the rear.

It has a long frontage to and access off the busy Outer Circle Road together with a return frontage and additional access off Bishops Road. There are ample car sales and customer parking spaces.
