Ebbw Vale lies at the top of the A4046 close to its junction with the A465 Heads of The Valleys Road, which is at present being dualled along its length. Abergavenny and the A40 lie about 9 miles to the east allowing easy access onto the M4 at Newport and the M50. Cardiff lies around 30 miles to the south and there is a good rail service from the Parkway station of about one hour. The town has a population of around 19,000 and is in the middle of a £350m town centre "works" development with new office, schools, college and housing and a central railway station. On the outskirts of the town is the Festival Park Outlet Village with retailers including Marks & Spencer, Nike, Clarks and Gap. Brynmawr lies upon the northern edge of Ebbw Vale with Barleyfield way accessing a major industrial estate lying adjacent to an ASDA Superstore. There is easy access onto the A465 Heads of The Valleys Road via the A467.


The property lies within the busy Barleyfield industrial estate that incorporates a wide range of occupiers. The property comprises one end of a large Council Central Depot building. The property is thus semi-detached and is constructed as a three bay warehouse building with brick and profile clad elevations beneath pitched roofs incorporating glazed panels. Internally the property has been used as Council offices, split into numerous (circa 70) rooms of varying sizes with panel ceilings and recessed lighting that have been suspended well below the roof level so there is a deep roof void. The internal accommodation extends to approximately 32,000 sq ft (2,972.87 sq m).
Externally is ample parking spaces along two sides of the property.
