A landmark office building within Oxfordshire’s science and technology community is available for rent through agent Carter Jonas. The Manor Court in Chilton offers over 14,000 sq ft of prestigious office accommodation and is situated within the geographical boundaries of Science Vale, one of the UK’s most prominent hubs for science, innovation and advanced technology.

“Organisations looking for a headquarters or large regional base that links them into the Oxfordshire science and innovation community will find The Manor Court very appealing,” says Carter Jonas Partner Scott Harkness. “This is a stand-alone building, in its own grounds, in close proximity to the many technology and business parks in the area. An organisation requiring a sizeable office base with direct access to these communities should take a look.”

The Science Vale business community has a worldwide reputation for science and technology excellence and comprises Harwell International, Milton Park and Culham Science and Technology Centre. Between them these three business locations employ 13,000 people in over 400 companies.

Built less than 10 years ago as a headquarters building for a major PLC, The Manor Court is a classically designed, prestigious building set within its own landscaped grounds. Constructed of brick over two floors, the internal layout is mostly open plan, providing a high level of flexibility. The whole site is secure and fully gated with car parking for over 100 vehicles. Its proximity to Science Vale provides excellent local amenities for visitors and employees, with a good selection of hotels, shops, health clubs and public transport all close by.

The Manor Court is also ideally situated for transport connections by road, rail and air, with easy access to the UK motorway network, and approximately 40 minutes’ by car from Heathrow Airport. Major rail station Didcot Parkway is also close by.
