High Street, Crediton

On Market — £470,000 — Freehold

Terraced Mixed Use Investment for Sale in Crediton Town with 6 Bedrooms, 2 Reception Rooms and 2 Bathrooms.

The building, which is believed to date back to the 1860’s, has been used as a newsagent for many years, but lends itself to a variety of uses, subject to the necessary planning permissions being sought. The current owners are willing however, to sell the business by separate negotiation. The ground floor has a very large shop floor, in fact the commercial element of the building extends to just under 1,750 square feet. The original front door of the building is now offset, with a further modern entrance being the one now used to the shop, and as such lends itself to being split into two commercial units very easily; again, subject to planning.

From the rear of the shop is a wonderful original staircase, leading to the residential accommodation above, which is surprisingly spacious, and with high ceilings, large windows and many period features - it is very light and airy!

The accommodation provides a comfortable and flexible family home, and has been much improved by the current owners. There is a modern fitted kitchen, providing plenty of workspace and fitted storage space, and this opens into a sociable dining area. The utility room is slightly offset providing further storage with a large pantry too. The living room is of very generous proportions and overlooks the High Street, and there is a further reception room, currently used as an office with plenty of bookshelves, and again overlooking the High Street. The staircase continues to the second floor with a beautiful arched stair window flooding the space with light. The second floor provides four double bedroom accommodation, as well as a modern shower room with double cubicle, and a large family bathroom, which was recently fitted in a period style with high level WC and a roll top bath, as well as a further double shower cubicle.

The third floor provides a further reception room with two double bedrooms, and was most likely servants quarters. The exposed brick work shows the former doorway into the neighbouring property from when this and the neighbouring property were one premises. This area has been used for the vendors children to have independence and makes a great separate space for dependent relatives.

The sale of this prominent building presents an excellent opportunity to take over the existing business and live above, or to create multiple letting properties.
