Sainsbury’s has occupied the property for more than 30 years and has recently regeared the lease, demonstrating its commitment to the area. The site also benefits from its close proximity to Wimbledon National Rail and Underground Station, which it is proposed to be a major Crossrail 2 station. 

The site includes the office building, known as William House, which provides two floors of self-contained office accommodation extending to 8,722 sq ft, which are currently sub-let to Lidl. Wimbledon is also home to numerous global companies including Capsticks, Close Brothers and Unibet.

Paul Hodgson, Managing Director of Eskmuir, said: “We received a lot of interest in 8-12 Worple Road from very reputable parties, as a result we secured an excellent return for our investors from a transaction which completed swiftly. The funds secured from the disposal of this asset will go towards growing our diversified portfolio of assets across the UK, concentrating on assets where we can increase value significantly through our stewardship and proactive asset management.”
