For sale: H.M.’s Rocket Store


An oddity has come on the property market – a studio for an artist, maybe, or a writer’s hideaway?

Believed to have been in existence since the 1930s, this charming wooden and metal building lies on Pett Level Road. Her Majesty’s former Rocket Store is situated to the west end of Pett Level beach and is the nearest thing to a beach hut you could find in this beautiful unspoiled area.

The building is warm, dry and has been insulated, only five minutes’ walk from the outstanding shoreline. In addition, public lavatories are very conveniently situated between the Store and the beach, which is a safe swimming area and has extensive sand and rock pools at low tide. If you’re looking for a hideaway – this is it.

A short walk to the seafront, the building is of part-timber and corrugated-iron construction which internally has been dry-lined with an insulated concrete floor. The building is currently divided into two rooms 14ft 8in x 9ft 9in and 9ft 9in x 7ft 7in, has night storage heaters, internal and exterior lighting, electricity and connected telephone and Wi-Fi. If interested, contact Matthew Braxton of Batcheller Monkhouse on 07790 576612 or 01424 775577 for a viewing. Priced at £55,000 freehold.
