Following the successful sale of Unit 8 Enterprise Centre, Bell Lane, Uckfield on a freehold basis it is now available to rent. Having being converted to form part offices and showroom on the ground floor, this building lends itself very well for trade counter/retail use. It does not currently have planning permission for trade counter use but Ecofuture Lighting are already in Enterprise Centre and Unit 1 is under offer to a trade counter type user. This particular unit faces directly onto Bell Lane so has good, prominent frontage and is almost directly opposite Screwfix. There are not too many opportunities to obtain units with this kind of prominence and it represents an ideal spot for a small trade counter type user.
For too long the new shop unit at 7 Crowborough Hill has been languishing on the market and part of the reason it did not find a quick occupier was that the building had not been finished. We are pleased to say that the owners are now going ahead and finishing this spacious new large shop which is just under 950 sq ft. The walls will be plastered, and a suspended ceiling will be installed together with a kitchenette and w.c. facility. New flooring is to be fitted and a rather unique front door. The shop will also benefit from a combined heating/cooling system. This means that, on conclusion of legal work. you could be installed in these new premises in about 6 weeks time. As a freehold owner you would benefit from some ground rent income for the flats above which have all been sold off on long leases plus you would have a nice, smart. modern unit in the heart of Crowborough’s shopping area. There are very few retail freeholds of this size available so don’t miss this opportunity.
A plumbing firm in Heathfield has expanded into premises on the Ghyll Road Industrial Estate. Unit 4 is a unit of 1,145 sq ft on the ground floor with useful open plan offices above of some 750 sq ft. It is good to see a small local business expanding into larger premises supporting the view that even small businesses have the confidence to expand and take on new premises.
Lawson Commercial have just been instructed to market a detached workshop with 1st floor office in Crowborough offering in total just under 1,150 sq ft of accommodation. This is an ideal opportunity for a small business to acquire their own freehold workshop and office premises in the heart of Crowborough at a very competitive price of £122,000. Very few properties of this sort become available so we are expecting there to be significant competition for the property.
Following extensive refurbishment Lawson Commercial have sold 8 Sybron Way in Crowborough. The building benefitted from a recent major overhaul including a new roof and re-profiling plus upgrading of the 1st floor offices. In total the building offered just over 5,000 sq ft of accommodation and has been acquired by a local Crowborough business who are expanding and will be using the property as their new headquarters. A price close to asking figure of £325,000 was paid. This deal continues to demonstrate the strong demand for freehold premises in the Crowborough area. There was significant interest in this building and we could have sold it several times over. It highlights that business confidence for commercial property is strong and we would welcome more instructions of this sort as we have a number of unsatisfied applicants.
A new building is under construction at the Shortgate Industrial Park on the B2192 which links Halland with Ringmer and affords easy access to both Uckfield and Lewes. A 3,060 sq ft warehouse is under construction which is capable, if required, of being divided into two units of around 1,500 sq ft each. The whole building is available on a new lease at £20,000 pa.
Also available is Unit 3 adjoining which is a mixture of workshops, storage and offices totalling some 2,393 sq ft which could be taken at the same time if desired. The rent for this unit is £14,500 pa. If you are a business which requires some workshop areas and warehouse space for storage plus some administration/sales space this site could suit extremely well having over 5,000 sq ft of space in total. With car parking, plenty of room to manoeuvre a lorry and good access to the major towns this could be the ideal spot.
In this busy modern world that we live in where we tend to be rushing from one task to another sometimes it is good to be able to look out on a tranquil environment. You can certainly do this at the Deanland Business Park at Golden Cross where in front of the main building is a most delightful fishing lake with a bridge across to an island and attractive landscaping surrounding the car park. Just the spot for a lunchtime sandwich when the sun shines.
Two adjoining factory/warehouse units have just become available as the current occupier has outgrown the accommodation and is moving elsewhere. Unit 5 is 3,598 sq ft and Unit 6 is 2,698 sq ft. Thus overall the two units together offer just over 6,000 sq ft. The units are available together or separately and are ideal for manufacturing or storage. Unit 6 also benefits from a 1st floor office constructed within the unit increasing the overall floor area. There is good parking and easy access to the A22. What more could you ask for. Rents are just £6.50 per sq ft pa.
