The site measures circa one acre and comprises a cleared brownfield site which previously accommodated a former care home and day care centre. Planning consent was granted in May 2016 for the ‘erection of a new part two/part three-storey C2 care home’ with 74 generously sized en suite bedrooms which all exceed the CQC’s ‘Essential Standards of Quality and Care’.

The development site is located in the Ridgewood district of Uckfield close to the Uckfield Millennium Green, a public house, Post Office and a village hall. To the south west is a new Taylor Wimpey development known as Ridgewood Place where three-to-four-bedroom houses have a guide price of up to £514,995.

Uckfield is an East Sussex market town located south of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB). North of the town is Lake Wood and West Park local nature reserve, and to the south is the East Sussex National Golf Club.

Jordan Rundle, Director at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, comments, “This site is consented in the affluent area of Uckfield in East Sussex and provides a good opportunity for elderly or specialist operators to acquire a care home development opportunity that can be delivered in the short-term.”

Offers are invited for the freehold of the site.
