Motor Premises Sold In Forest Row

Lawson Commercial have sold the former Newlands Motors at Standard House in Forest Row.

This is a unique property in that it is in the heart of Forest Row just behind the shops in Hillside. For over 25 years it has been used for the restoration and servicing of classic cars. The owner has now retired.

There was considerable interest in the property as it is unusual to have a prominent workshop facility right in the heart of an urban area. We had so much interest that we ended up going to best offers and selling the property for a price in excess of the asking price of £475,000. This was no doubt fuelled by the strong demand for freehold commercial buildings.

The premises have been acquired by another classic car restoration company from Brighton who after refurbishing the building will be re-opening.

Price Reduced For Fantastic Freehold Business Opportunity

A factory/warehouse in Battle of over 22,000 sq ft sitting in a site of 2.2 acres is now available at a reduced price for an early sale providing a fantastic business opportunity.

The property adjoins Battle mainline railway station and provides tremendous scope for future development, subject to planning, for more industrial units, remodelling of existing accommodation or other commercial development.

Included is a 2-storey 3-bed live/work unit, formerly offices, attached to the main factory building as well as considerable open display/parking areas.

There is scope for self-storage and/or parking for commuters using the station.

A price of £2.5 million is now being sought with full vacant possession.
