We have just been instructed to market a good modern unit ideal for a small business that requires some factory/manufacturing space or storage together with some offices. This is an end-of-terrace unit close to Uckfield’s Royal Main Sorting Office. It has just over 1,000 sq ft on the ground floor with just over 700 sq ft of office/storage at 1st floor. There are two staircases, one at the front and one at the back, plus 5 car spaces. A really good little unit.
It is not often that a shop with a small flat over comes on the market. 2 Church Street has been used for retail plus residential accommodation in the past although it does require some improvement. There is a room at the back of the property which would convert very well into a kitchen although it does not have a sink unit in it currently. There is a shower, w.c. and basin on the 1st floor and the front room which goes over the adjoining shop, occupied by a mobile phone repairer, would make a very nice sitting room. The bedroom which is presently partitioned into 2 rooms, is in the attic.
The premises would be ideal for the entrepreneur who wants to live over their business. It is in an extremely prominent position being almost on the junction of Church Street with the High Street.
A real rarity which will have great appeal to the right person.
So often today the enquiries we receive for small industrial units are from businesses that do not want a mezzanine floor. We now have a unit in Uckfield could suit that style of business very well. It is a good sized unit of just over 1,000 sq ft with 5 parking spaces which is better than average for a small unit. It has good, clear space with good height and plenty of natural light. It is looking for an occupier quickly so the rent is competitive.
There are not many small units available in Uckfield to rent like this one so if you are interested contact us without delay.
If you have ever sampled the excellent fare at the Buttercup Cafe in Lewes then this is the office for you. They even do deliveries for people who have businesses in Lewes and, in this location, the service should be rapid! Buttercup Cafe is in the courtyard behind Pastorale Antiques in Malling Street. Above Pastorale Antiques are some suites of offices and this very pleasant 1st floor room has just become available.
It is ideal for someone just starting up in business and wanting a single room with shared facilities. It is available on an annual licence and the only extra cost will be sorting out your own telephone system. This delightful office overlooks Malling Street being just a few yards from Cliffe High Street and of course very close to the all important Buttercup Cafe.
There has been a big upsurge of interest in the refurbished units we are marketing at the Knights Business Centre on the Squires Farm Industrial Estate at Palehouse Common, just south of Uckfield. The two big units are now in solicitors’ hands to freehold purchasers. Two of the smaller units are also under offer which only leaves three of the smaller units still available. These are ideal for small businesses being under 1,500 sq ft with rents between £8,000 and £9,000 pa. There are three medium sized units, two being around 3,000 sq ft and one of just under 2,000 sq ft but there is already significant interest being shown in these. The refurbishment works are now at an advanced stage and we hope that the first tenant will be moving in at the end of the month. The units now present much better than they did a couple of months ago and provide some rally good, useful industrial space only 1.5 miles from the A22.
A planning application has been submitted to Wealden District Council on the Ashdown Business Park at Maresfield dividing the 14.7 acre plot into 10 individual sites. The owners are intending to commence infrastructure works in February 2015 to install services and each site will be offered separately with services enabling purchasers to construct their own buildings.
A variety of buildings are being proposed including a cafe/fast food restaurant on 0.5 acres, two office/industrial buildings in excess of 50,000 sq ft with sites of 3.5 to 3.9 acres plus a variety of office buildings, some with 2 or 3 storeys. There are also two sites, each suitable for 4 small industrial units, as well as a number of other variously sized sites.
Lawson Commercial have been appointed sole agents to market these sites having been involved with this plot and its development for several years. We have been marketing this as a single plot but now the owners have decided to carry out the necessary infrastructure works and we will be looking forward to marketing the individual sites with full planning permission which we hope will be forthcoming before Christmas. We are also in the process of updating the Ashdown Business Park website.
There are not too many medium sized industrial units available in the local market currently. However we are pleased to report that we now have one available to let at the Deanland Business Park just off the A22 at Golden Cross. It offers very good accommodation of some 1,593 sq ft with a small office and cloakroom. There is good height at the back of 23’ so plenty of room to put a mezzanine floor in if necessary. The unit is available at a very competitive rent of £10,000 pa. In addition the rateable value is only £6,400 which means the rates payable should be very reasonable particularly if small business rate relief can be claimed if this is the occupier’s only premises.
This property is well worth inspecting so give us a call.
What we have noticed during the course of 2014 is that the demand for freehold industrial units is extremely strong. So far this year we have been successful in finding two separate buyers to acquire a 7,000 sq ft unit and a 6,000 sq ft unit at the Knights Business Centre in Palehouse Common. There has been really good demand for the small unit on the Enterprise Centre where we had three offers and have achieved a price close to the asking price.
We now have another opportunity to purchase a freehold unit and it falls between the large and the small size category. This unit has a gross internal area of 1,935 sq ft on the ground floor with a couple of offices on the 1st floor mezzanine making a total of 2,286 sq ft. There is allocated car parking at the front and this building has a very prominent position facing towards Brookside so highly visible from this busy road. The freehold can be bought with vacant possession for £225,000 which is a sensible figure in this vibrant market making it ideal for any owner occupier looking for a medium sized unit to run their business from.
If past experience is anything to go by this unit is not likely to remain on the market very long on this basis so if you are interested don’t delay. Call us today for full details and to view.
