THE PROPERTY
This end terrace Victorian building is believed to have been constructed around 1888 with accommodation on ground and first floors with 6 apartments over. We are instructed to sell the ground floor and first floor lock up retail premises offering approximately 4,000 sq ft of space with an office area and staff cloakroom. The premises are one of the largest retail shops within the town centre and ideal for display of a large range and selection of goods.

LOCATION
This substantial property is located in a busy High Street trading position towards the Eastern approach to Ilfracombe High Street set back from the main pavement with a large forecourt display area. The premises are within close proximity to Barclays Bank and Natwest in a highly visible position.

Ilfracombe has a population of some 10,500 inhabitants boosted during the summer months with the influx of tourists. The town is fast becoming a premier destination and in recent years developments have included the construction of the new Landmark Theatre, the enhancement and refurbishment of the Pier and Quay Head. In addition, the internationally renowned artist Damien Hurst has acquired a property on the main quay and converted the premises into a premier restaurant. A consequence of this has been to obtain maximum publicity in the national press through editorial for the resort and placed the Town on the map. Recently the town has benefited from the completion of two new supermarkets namely Tesco on the outskirts of the Town and Lidl's on the entrance to the main seafront. In addition, a number of hotels have been converted to provide luxury apartments and there is a great deal of inward investment taking place within the town at the moment.
