Lot 98: FIRE DAMAGED PREMISES AND LAND WITH POTENTIAL FOR REINSTATEMENT/RE-DEVELOPMENT

Sold After

Situated on the west side of Sandwich Road (A256) close to the junction with Kennel Hill between Eastry and Whitfield is The Cider Works (formerly known as The High & Dry). Prior to the fire damage in April 2018 it is understood that The Cider Works comprised a public house, shop, restaurant, two self-contained flats (one, one-bedroom and one two-bedroom) with separate access, and a cider processing combo.

Within the 0.73 hectare (1.82 acres) plot there is a car park, children’s playground, grassed area and paddock. The fire damaged building and site may offer potential for reinstatement or re-development with a residential, commercial or mixed use scheme, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
