Lawson Commercial have been jointly instructed with Core Commercial to market Melody House on the Farningham Road Estate, Crowborough following the demise of FCN Music. It is very sad to see the FCN Music has not survived, obviously being a victim of the Recession, as they were a specialist musical instrument wholesaler who had found trading over the last few years extremely difficult. They are now vacating the building and we have been asked by the Landlord to find a new tenant. There are some great incentives available on this property. Thus the Landlord is prepared to offer a 6 months rent free period and a 5 year lease with a break after 3 years all at a very competitive rent of just over £5 per sq ft. The building was constructed in 2001 and is of a very high quality. It could be split into two and offers some 9,400 sq ft of accommodation including some very nice 1st floor offices. For more information and to view give us a call on 01825 76 44 88.
At the western end of Heathfield High Street are 3 interconnecting showrooms which many local people will remember as Caffyns Landrover. Some 2 years ago it traded as Dream Machines which specialised in the sale of TVRs and Lotus cars but since then it has been vacant. We are pleased to say that Lawson Commercial have been instructed to market the site on a freehold basis with vacant possession subject to the existing uses. The premises lend themselves very well for car sales with rear workshops. We do feel that the buildings, constructed may years ago, have come to the end of their useful life and this does give the possibility of redeveloping the site to provide more retail accommodation for Heathfield with perhaps flats above subject to any necessary consents. It is an ideal opportunity for an investor/developer to acquire a very prominent corner plot.
Lawson Commercial have just been instructed to market some good quality farm units at Ashgrove Farm in Piltdown. These are located on the A272 quite close to the petrol station and almost opposite Old Spot Farm. Unit 1A has an attractive office with suspended ceiling of some 560 sq ft together, and interconnecting with, a storage/workshop area making a total of just under 1.600 sq ft. This is available on a new 3 or 6 year lease at £7,500 pa.
There is also a separate small store/workshop of 1,138 sq ft which is ideal for a small business or for someone looking for some cheap overflow storage. This is available at £4,500 pa. The site is easily accessible and has plenty of parking.
Lawson Commercial have let the former estate agents premises at 1 London House, London Road, Crowborough, a small lockup shop of just under 500 sq ft with the benefit of a car parking space at the rear. The shop has been acquired by a specialist building design consultants Beverley Design Services from Tunbridge Wells as a design studio/office. This makes good use of the former office permission on these premises. It always takes a bit longer to find someone for these properties which are north of Crowborough Cross junction
and thy do tend to appeal to specialist businesses such as estate agency, curtain manufacture, off-licence etc. We are pleased to have been able to attract a company from Tunbridge Wells to this part of Crowborough.
