Recently become available are some former farm buildings at Halland Park Farm which have been used by the owner for storage but which don’t have consent for this use and neither are they assessed for business rates. The main building has an area of just under 9,000 sq ft with an apex height of 25’3”. It has an oil-fired blower providing heating and offers some really excellent low cost storage available at £1.99 per sq ft. It doesn’t come cheaper than that! Unit 2 is a much smaller unit of just under 600 sq ft with a good sized sliding door to the front and is available on a new lease at £1,800 per annum.
A really useful end-of-terrace small industrial unit is now available, ideal for a small business, with the advantage that it can be purchased or rented. It is located on the Ghyll Road Industrial Estate with easy access to Ghyll Road itself. On the ground floor it is just over 990 sq ft which is divided into a number of areas including a counter area with air conditioning and tea station facility. There is a ground floor storage area plus a rear office section. The mezzanine floor above covers almost the whole of the ground floor being some 854 sq ft and is mainly storage apart from a separate meeting room. Overall a very useful 1,846 sq ft with good car parking to the side as well as to the front. It is available to buy for £120,000 freehold or alternatively it can be rented at £8,500 per annum. Viewing is strongly recommended.
We have just been instructed to market the lease at Ryans Bakery, 146 High Street, Uckfield. This is a superb corner position being at the junction of Grange Road and the High Street with excellent window frontage. For many years it has traded as a hot bread/sandwich takeaway but we are instructed to market it as an empty shop so it could be used for a variety of uses. The shop is just under 600 sq ft in total and is held on a 10 year lease from May 2008 with a review after 5 years. It represents a really fantastic opportunity in the heart of this thriving High Street.
Right in the heart of Rotherfield a retail building known as the The Old Garage in The Square has been let for hair and beauty. Over the years this shop has been used for a variety of different retail trades including antiques and more recently as an independent wine shop. The shop has been let to a new business from an experienced practitioner and we are delighted to have been able to help them to secure this prominent village location.
Right in the heart of Glynde village, just a short distance north of the A27, we have instructions to market some well converted business space on behalf of Glynde Estates. Known as the Old Dairy, it was purpose-built as a dairy in 1887 and has been refurbished to a high standard. Other occupiers in this little complex include Flint Owl Bakery, A Taste of Dreams and Say Cheese. There is a really good workshop of 761 sq ft which is fantastic, light, airy workspace with lots of natural light and plenty of beams. The height to the underside of the beams is 12’. From the workshop a passageway leads to the Old Butter Room which is 261 sq ft of very useful storage having a rather unusual curved ceiling. The whole unit is available at £6,500 per annum.
Another unit also available, which is undergoing refurbishment, is a delightful office with its own access from the main road. Improvements to be made include complete redecoration, new heating and upgrading of the car parking area immediately in front of the door. Totalling some 331 sq ft it is available at £5,500 per annum. Both units are available on nice short 3 year leases and are ideal for a business startup. Viewing recommended.
Lawson Commercial have let the Priory Suite at the Meadow Business Centre in Ringmer to Aloof Design who have relocated from Lewes. This delightful conversion with a wealth of exposed beams is a single storey, L-shaped building arranged around a courtyard offering just under 900 sq ft of accommodation. It is interesting to have another design agency in these premises as the previous occupiers were also in the design business and it will complement other occupiers of the courtyard which include Blue Planet web designers.
