Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In a popular residential area of this resort Inglewood is within walking distance of all the Town centre amenities. Teignmouth is an attractive Victorian coastal resort located in South Devon 15 miles from Exeter and approximately 9 miles from Torquay. The nearest market town is Newton Abbot which is some 5 miles distance. Both Teignmouth and Newton Abbot benefit from main line railway stations and the City of Plymouth is some 35 miles away approximately. The Town has a comprehensive range of facilities including tourist amenities and shops.

From the M5 Motorway travel south continuing on the A38/A380 junction follow the sign for Torquay continue up Telegraph Hill and after some distance take the exit for Teignmouth. On approaching the outskirts of the Town travelling down Exeter Road continue past New Road on the left, continue (passing underneath the road footbridge) and turn Right into Landscore Road. Thereafter continue and take the second turning on the right into Third Drive. Inglewood can be found on the left hand side.

The property is an enlarged detached residence originally operating as a 23 bedroom Hotel. Our clients acquired the property about 15 years ago and have over the years developed the property into a home and income providing a very pleasant 5/6 bedroom family home and in the adjoining wing 5 self-contained apartments as well as a garden apartment. Therefore there are 6 self-contained apartments all let on short tenancy agreements providing a lucrative income of 30,000 per annum.

The private quarters provide surprisingly spacious accommodation with 2 reception rooms, private office, fitted kitchen and utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor and 6 bedrooms on the first floor. The property is used as a private residence at the moment but a discerning purchaser could quite easily adapt the property to Bed and Breakfast accommodation thereby increasing income further.

Our client advises us that the building was converted about 3 years ago when the new stairwell was built to give residents their own entrance. At this time the part of the roof, over the flats, was Triflexed and holds a 20 year guarantee. Also fire regulations were updated and change of usage was granted. Approximately 7 years ago the flats were re-wired and plumbing replaced. The main house had the roof re-slated approximately 15 years ago and over recent years the property itself has been upgraded and maintained to a good standard with double glazing, gas fired central heating. Outside there are good sized level gardens with workshops, store sheds and 9 parking spaces.

From the upper levels of the property glimpses of the sea, estuary and surrounding area.
