Having been within the ownership of the vendor’s family since 1987, 3 West Street and Cob Cottage are offered to the market for the first time in about 29 years. Up until 1999/2000, 3 West Street comprised a residence with an integral shop which originally served as a delicatessen and, latterly, for the sale of antiques and books, until trading ceased. Outside, Cob Cottage offers further separate residential accommodation, and there is a further workshop, store, tandem garage and spacious rear garden. The property has the benefit of access at the front from West Street and also, at the rear, from Joan Spry Close. The property now requires modernisation/redevelopment and would be well suited to a range of uses, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The property is located within the conservation area of Witheridge which provides local amenities including a shop, primary school, church and public house. Both the market towns of Tiverton and South Molton are about ten miles away. Tiverton offers a wider range of amenities including secondary schools and further shops. Junction 27 of the M5 motorway is a further six miles from Tiverton, with Tiverton Parkway railway station also easily accessible.
3 West Street
The property comprises an imposing brick and slate building and, although now in need of modernisation throughout, the fabric of the building appears to be in ‘good heart’ with the slate roof (and flat roof at the rear) having been renovated and recovered in 2000/2001. On the ground floor accommodation comprises a Hall, Former Shop/Drawing Room, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and Utility. On the first floor there are four Double Bedrooms, a further Single Bedroom and a Bathroom.
The property comprises a small attached stone and slate cottage providing a Living Room/Kitchenette on the ground floor, together with a Bedroom and Shower Room on the first floor.
There is lean-to store off Cob Cottage, together with a further stone and galvanised Workshop/Store, block and steel Tandem Garage, garden area providing lawn and vegetable patch and a shared driveway providing the rear access off Joan Spry Close. In total, the site extends to about 5,375sqft.
The property is serviced by mains electric, water and drainage with LPG heating. In addition to access at the front from the adjoining West Street, the property has the benefit of access at the rear from Joan Spry Close. This is a shared access with the maintenance costs shared on a ‘50/50’ basis.
