The last part of what many people would remember as the old Owl Video unit at Horsted Square, Uckfield has been sold to Ashdown Audio Visual from PIltdown. They are relocating from a former farm building to this modern business space of some 5,000 sq ft on 2 floors. It is really good to see a local business expanding in this way in the current market and we wish them every success. A price close to the asking figure of £350,000 was paid.
We have been instructed on a superbly refurbished single storey farm barn with lots of natural light and a wealth of beams. The premises are just under 600 sq ft divided into 2 sections with 4 car parking spaces and located in a very pleasant rural setting close to the entrance to Firle Place yet only yards away from the main A27 affording easy access to Lewes and Eastbourne. The premises are well fitted having dado trunking with cat 5 wiring and are ready for immediate occupation. The property really must be viewed to appreciate the quality and all those beams. It is available at a very competitive rent of £6,000 pa and is one of the best conversions we have seen for many years.
Martin Story was a long established firm in Crowborough. Those who are local may remember it being located in London Road prior to the move to purpose-built premises at the end of the 1980s on the Farningham Road Estate. We have now been instructed to market these premises on the basis of a freehold with full vacant possession. This is an interesting building in that it comprises several different areas and offers great flexibility for future business use. The front section of the building is part storage and part trade counter for the motor factors side of the business together with ancillary storage on the mezzanine floor plus offices. At the rear of the ground floor is a full height car repair workshop with large roller shutter doors exiting into a secure rear yard accessed by a wide driveway from the front. There is also a very useful large car park at the front. Much of the arrangement of the ground floor is internal partitions which could easily be removed to provide larger open plan working areas. Viewing is strongly recommended and the property has been competitively priced for a quick sale at £430,000.
