15A Upper Brents is a 3,000 sq ft Victorian warehouse situated in Faversham, on the Kent coast. 15A Upper Brents is currently owned by internationally acclaimed sculptor Jeff Lowe. Lowe has played a major role in advancing abstract sculpture, his works varying in scale from smaller plinth-mounted pieces to large-scale indoor and outdoor exhibits. This particular warehouse used to store Lowe's materials and works in progress.

15A Upper Brents has most recently been occupied by a tenant who is a specialist antiques restorer. The ground floor has been used as a restoration and studio space. Upstairs, the warehouse offers a sizeable, raw lateral space. Metal trusses span the entire length of the living space and emphasise the ceiilng height. There are two rooms situated to the side of the principal space and an optional third located on a small mezzanine. 

While much work has already been undertaken at the property, 15A Upper Brents offers a fantastic opportunity for anyone seeking a commercial project. 

Faversham is just 10 miles from the city of Canterbury and 48 miles (or just over an hour by train) from London. But it also offers the opportunity to enjoy coastal living and a quieter pace of life. 

Faversham is the oldest market town in the county and some of its warehouse buildings date from the 16th century. From 1830, as the demand for housing in London rose significantly, Faversham quickly became the manufacturing base for bricks and Roman cement. The town also proved its importance in the brewing and malting industries, the manufacture of military grade gunpowder, the corn milling industry and the early generation of electricity in the twentieth century. Situated by a picturesque creek, Faversham also bears a maritime past. The town already had a history of ship-building by the time that a shipyard was stationed in Faversham in 1916. From here over 1200 vessels were sent out all over the world as exported goods before 1969. Today, Faversham offers an array of independent shops, museums and places to eat and drink. 

"We have largely retained the original proportions of this characterful Victorian warehouse, meaning it is particularly well-suited for anyone with creative interests such as painting, sculpture or even vehicle restoration. It is in need of modernisation and will make a great renovation project. It's ideally located close to the creek and within easy walking distance of local shops, cafes and restaurants."
