Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION
In a prime tourist location this is a substantial double fronted retail shop that looks out onto Lee Road the main thoroughfare through Lynton, located within the Exmoor National Park. The property adjoins the United Reform Church on one side and a residential property on the other. It is within level walking distance of all town centre car parks, shops and amenities. There is ample parking within the vicinity nearby. Lynton with its co-resort of Lynmouth is often referred to as the 'Little Switzerland' of England, surrounded by deep sided wooded river valleys that run down to the sea. The town is busy throughout the year with tourists from the UK and overseas and nearby is the famous Valley of the Rocks. Barnstaple is North Devon's regional centre and is approximately 18 miles away, nearby are the villages of Parracombe, Simonsbath and across the moor is Porlock.

THE PROPERTY
The property comprises of a double fronted L-shaped retail shop unit, offering approximately 650 sq ft on the ground floor, plus an inner office and stock room with separate cloakroom off and storage cupboard. From the rear office, an external staircase leads down to the large basement storage area. The owners have a separate access through an entrance porch and hallway to their own 3 bedroom self-contained apartment on the first and second floor. This benefits from double glazing and provides to the front a double bedroom, separate dining room (which could easily be re-designed as a further bedroom) and separate lounge with a well fitted kitchen to the rear and modern bathroom. From the first floor landing, a staircase leads to the roof void area which has been utilised as two additional bedrooms for family members when they stay. The ground floor shop could easily be split into two units, providing a useful lucrative rental income or indeed the premises could be utilised for a number of retail trades or even possibly a catering outlet subject to planning permission. Alternatively the premises may convert back to residential subject to obtaining consent from the District Council and Exmoor National Parks Planning Authority. There is vast scope to utilise the basement and the property is deceptively spacious with excellent potential for further development of a retail outlet or indeed as at present the property could be used as an antiques shop.
