8 bedroom detached house for sale

Budleigh Salterton, Devon

Sold STC £950,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique freehold opportunity enjoying a tranquil and scenic location in the heart of Budleigh Salterton yet only yards from the convenience of High Street shops, the sea front and beach.

Built for a local doctor in 1906, Abele Tree House is a handsome and substantial Edwardian villa which originally doubled as the doctors consulting rooms. Set well back from the road behind mature gardens the house has an almost unique south-facing walled garden behind (reminiscent of the “Secret Garden” for those familiar with the book) and represents a rare opportunity for restoration as a family house, or potentially for conversion.

The adjacent self-contained Coach House was built in 1989 and, with modest updating (and possible minor extension) could provide a charming residence in its own right or a home or holiday letting with income potential.

Together the two properties offer some 5,000 square feet of internal accommodation. The plot extends to 0.7 acres approx. and is orientated to enjoy sunshine throughout the day. Considering the property’s central location, the extensive gardens, private parking and garaging are extremely rare assets.

Both properties offer genuine potential for extension and conversion (subject to necessary consents). A recent planning application (15/1881/MFUL) to replace the main house with a very similar building containing 8 apartments was refused - but conversion and/or extension was indicated during negotiations as a possibly acceptable alternative. The vendors can make available specialist technical reports and other information which may be of assistance to any party considering such a course.
