Located in the heart of town, opposite the Vicarage, this wonderful old building has since 1962 been used as both residential and commercial accommodation (Built in 1889 and offers approximately 4,200 sqft of mixed residential and commercial space).
The property is presently split as a large first floor flat with ground floor commercial shop and show room accommodation. Indicative feedback from the National Park is that they may consider a variety of alterations to the present layout (subject to necessary consents being given)
This could include 1) making the existing first floor flat fully self-contained with standalone commercial accommodation at ground floor level 2) increase the overall space of the flat to include some of the ground floor (with the flat not being enlarged by more than 35%), creating 2/3 smaller self-contained ground floor commercial units for investment/commercial letting 3) creation of an additional flat on the ground floor, subject to compliance with Policies HC-D2 and HC-D19 of the Exmoor Local Plan, resulting in two flats at the property.
The property is ideal for those seeking a home with flexible commercial accommodation or for those wishing to purchase the property as a longer term investment, with a combination of residential letting accommodation and commercial letting space (subject to meeting the latest EPC regulations). Please see agents for further details.
