1995: New life for old hospital

The Old Hospital before conversion

One of the most attractive new properties to come onto the market in recent years is nearing completion.

The Old Hospital, a landmark Grade II Listed Building, built in 1840, has undergone a complete renovation, and will offer superb high-tech office accommodation totalling 6,500 square feet.

Formerly Cuckfield Hospital, the new development offers a unique blend of traditional British architecture, but incorporates the latest technology in heat and noise insulation, modern communications with computer trunking.

Sympathetically restored, the Old Hospital would offer one or more companies a high level of services including a converted church to be used as a creche, an eight person lift, private car parking for 25 cars, disabled facilities, and because its insulation properties exceed the norm, service charges are expected to be unusually low.

The new development is set on high grounds with superb views of both the South Downs to the south and the Vale of Slaugham to the north, and yet it is only five minutes drive from the M23, with excellent BR connections London and the south coast.

Aware of the old Hospital's local importance, local developers, Slaugham Vale Limited have insisted on using other local companies and craftsmen whenever possible, with Cuckfield building surveyors Douglas J.P. Edwards supervising the building work, Stiles Harold Williams of Crawley handling the letting enquiries in association with Cuckfield agent Marcus Grimes Limited and Colemans Solicitors of HaywardsHeath dealing with all legal matters.

Viewing of this fascinating new development can be arranged.
