Modern B1 Light Industrial Building with Parking in Chipstead


The property is on the outer suburban fringes close to open countryside between Coulsdon, Chipstead and Woodmansterne as Outwood Lane merges with Chipstead Valley Road (B2032). The nearest stations are Chipstead and Coulsdon South. The location is about 6 miles south of Croydon’s commercial centre and ten minutes drive from access onto the M23 and M25. The premises (see plan overleaf) occupy a prominent corner site next to the Midday Sun P.H at the junction with Rectory Lane (B278) which has a local shopping parade nearby. They are fronted by a service road with bus shelter (route 166) opposite the water treatment works of SES Water.


Prospect Wells House is a modern detached two storey building, constructed in 1985 as a car showroom when known as Downland Garage. It was then used from about 1985 as a water bottling operation and for the last ten years for storage, distribution and light industrial purposes with ancillary first floor offices by a company making and distributing bottled water coolers.

The building is of brick and block steel frame construction with part tiled and part flat metallic roofing with sky lights. There are dormer windows and sliding aluminium doors to the front elevation. Gas central heating is installed and there are three internal staircases to the first floor which have separate gents and ladies toilets. New drainage was laid in the 1980s. The main warehouse has eaves height of about 16 ft 10 inches with a roller shutter door approx. 12 ft headroom.
