The Old Telephone Exchange, 6 Ashdown Road, Kingston upon Thames, KT1 2FP


The Old Telephone Exchange comprises a striking three storey character office building originally constructed in circa 1907 in an authentic style with asymmetrical plan and is grade II listed. 

The building structure has been refurbished and a complimentary fitout has also just been completed to create attractive character offices, whilst sympathetically retaining many of the original features including ornate brickwork, herringbone parquet flooring and vaulted ceiling with glass skylights on the first floor. 

There are two entrances into the property, one from Wheatfield Way which will have a disabled compliant platform lift, and another from Ashdown Road which is approached via the original steps. 

The ground floor is predominantly open plan with separate meeting rooms, kitchen, toilets and disabled WC.  Double doors open out onto an exclusive paved courtyard area to the rear. 

The first floor offers an identical layout with impressive vaulted ceiling above the main open plan space and separate boardrooms and toilets.  There is a central lift, linking all floors.  The offices will all benefit from a VRF cooling/heating system throughout. 

A lower ground floor provides further toilets, kitchen, shower and useful storage with cycle parking.
