Something A Little Different – Well Worth Viewing

If you have the sort of business that does not fit easily into some of the standard commercial buildings available then this might be just what you are after. Originally designed as an industrial unit it has been fitted out to a very high standard as offices and thus has become an office building with a small workshop and some storage.

It is currently occupied by a scientific company who are moving to a new headquarters building it offers very good flexible business space. There is some 1,200 sq ft of ground floor offices with trunking for cabling which links with a small ground floor workshop of 580 sq ft. but if that was not required you could turn that into more offices as well as it already has a suspended ceiling. The 1st floor is mainly storage into the eaves, some 1,337 sq ft in total, plus a meeting room and more cloakroom facilities. Overall the building offers 3,424 sq ft which is well fitted out with a heat pump heating/cooling system, plenty of trunking for cabling and they are living behind a Nortel telephone system with 19 handsets. There are 8 car parking spaces 3 of which could double up if you park one car in front of another.

The property is located in an easily accessible position being on the B2124 between the A22 and Ringmer and is available at a very competitive rent of £16,000 pa and there is the possibility that you might be able to buy the freehold. So well worth arranging to inspect.

Twisted Lemon Comes to Uckfield

We are very pleased to have been involved in the opening of a branch of the renowned restaurant Twisted Lemon from The Lanes in Brighton in Uckfield. They have taken a lease on the old Phish restaurant premises in Grange Road and opened on 5th July. On the previous Saturday they had an open day to introduce their menu to Uckfield and combined this with a live broadcast by Uckfield FM, Uckfield’s own community radio station.

This restaurant and cocktail bar will be a valuable addition to the Town bringing new tastes we have not seen before and complementing the already varied cuisine that can be found in Uckfield.

Betwixt Bexhill and Ninfield – Warehouse & Large Yard

If you are looking to rent a good modern warehouse with a large yard this could be the answer. It lies 2.2 miles south of Ninfield and 2 miles north of Bexhill. The warehouse was built about 2 years ago, originally for forestry purposes but now has planning for light industrial B1 and storage B8 and provides a really useful 6,000 sq ft of accommodation. Within that area is an office pod on ground & 1st floors + cloakroom and kitchen facilities. The building is not at all visible from Ninfield Road. At the front of the site, accessed directly off Ninfield Road, is a really useful yard of just under 6,000 sq ft and this leads via a gravelled slope to the building itself where there is a further 4,000 sq ft of yard/parking area in front of the main loading doors.

The property is very competitively priced. If you ignore the yard it is only £4.50 per sq ft for the warehouse so well worth viewing.

Plant Hire Yard With Planning For New Industrial Units

If you are in the plant hire business and struggling to find suitable premises this site could be the answer. Tucked away in rural Jarvis Brook, Crowborough but not far from the town centre is 0.7 acres with established lawful use as a plant hire yard/depot. There is one building on the site which has largely fallen down but that could be replaced. If the use was to be continued the existing access via Owlsbury Coachworks could continue. Plant hire is a use which often finds difficulty in locating the right site but this has the right permission and could be ideal.

Alternatively if you are an owner occupier who wants to own your own site with a bit of yard and you are looking for up to 6,000 sq ft of accommodation this could be the answer. This particular site has planning consent for 4 units ranging from 969 sq ft up to a maximum of just over 6,000 sq ft. It is an existing planning permission which is due to expire in November 2013 so if you are quick you can buy this site and start the works without having to re-apply for planning permission. This particular consent is not affected by Wealden Council’s recently introduced 7km Rule so don’t delay.

The asking price is £150,000 which represents good value for money for the right occupier.

Large Retail Unit in Crowborough Now Available Freehold

Lawson Commercial have received instructions to find a buyer for the Old Fire Station right in the heart of Crowborough’s retail area occupying a dominant position in the High Street. This large spacious Unit has just under 800 sq ft of ground floor trading area together with a very useful showroom/office/store of 705 sq ft giving some 1,500 sq ft in total. This is an excellent opportunity for an existing retailer or even an investor to acquire freehold premises in this busy, thriving centre at a competitive figure of £165,000. There are very few opportunities for people to buy their own retail premises in any of our Wealden towns so we believe there will be lots of interest in this building.
