About Apperly Estates Ltd

Apperly Estates, having celebrated its Centenary in 2019, faced the challenge of the Covid-19 lockdowns in 2020 and 2021. Having weathered those difficult years, we are now turning our attention to refurbishment and development projects on a number of properties in our portfolio, with the hope that the new economic uncertainties of inflation and the geo-political shocks emanating from the invasion Ukraine will not detract from our aims.

Our properties provide a total of some 385,000 sq.ft. of commercial floorspace, with 45 tenants producing a gross annual rent of £4.9 million.

Tenants in the portfolio include Andretti Formula E, Bowmer & Kirkland, Chaumet, EDF, Halfords, Howdens, Just Digital, Portman Healthcare, Rheon Labs and Sky Telecommunications Services.
