Major warehouse distribution centre on the market – at competitive rent
Published: 11 Jul 2022
A large, modern, high specification warehouse distribution centre serving East Sussex and beyond has come on to the market.
Unit 4, Ashdown Business Park is a strategically located 50,664 sq ft (4,707 sq m) warehouse premises at Maresfield, near Uckfield.
Property consultancy Vail Williams has been appointed to dispose of the property, 15 miles south west of Tunbridge Wells, by John Lewis Partnership.
Built in 2016, the detached, self-contained distribution warehouse has 21 loading doors, 10-metre eaves height, high quality office accommodation and plentiful parking.
Quoting rent for the securely fenced site is £412,237 per annum – equivalent to only £8.14 per sq ft – on the assignment of the current lease which expires in 2036.
Steve Berrett, Vail Williams Gatwick region Partner based in Crawley, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for a business to acquire an excellent purpose-built warehouse and distribution unit ready for immediate occupation.
“The rent sits very competitive compared to other newly built units in the region and we have already received strong interest with demand for warehouse units continuing to outstrip demand across the south east, driven particularly by last mile logistics.”
The property has high quality office accommodation across two levels complete with air conditioning and passenger lift.
Externally, the site comprises a large 50-metre yard with fuel tank and a separate car parking area with 93 spaces.
Amenities at Ashdown Business Park include a drive-thru Costa Coffee and a Premier Inn hotel, with planning consent in place for a new M&S Food Hall and a Home Bargains store on the adjacent plot.
