Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a prominent roadside position towards the edge of the village, a rare opportunity to purchase a former British Telecom Exchange site and buildings, with the potential for change of use/possible future residential development subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents.


The sale of this property represents an unique opportunity to acquire a former British Telecom exchange providing a useful range of outbuildings used as workshops/storage in more recent years. Lawned areas are situated to the front and sides of the buildings with gated pedestrian access onto the B3137.
The site is currently designated as brownfield land, but it is thought that there may be the potential for change of use and/or future residential development opportunity, subject to obtaining any necessary planning or building regulation consents. It is understood that BT retain ownership of the roadside bank to the front of the property.
The buildings are at present divided into four main rooms and briefly comprise as follows:-
The largest being of timber clad elevations beneath corrugated fibre cement roof with an entrance porch, former cloakroom which previously housed a WC and wash hand basin. (water and drainage disconnected). Further door opening into a large Workshop/Store Room with power and light connected, access to loft storage above, fitted shelving and storage racks.
Adjoining this workshop building, double opening doors lead through to a useful timber and corrugated roofed Store Room with power connected. A separate door leads into the block rendered and slate roofed store room with an inter-connecting passage through to a further good sized brick and rendered Workshop/Store beneath a tiled roof with door leading to outside rear, power and light also connected and store above.

Lying adjacent to the B3137 Witheridge to South Molton/Tiverton road the buildings occupy an accessible and sheltered position accessible to the village amenities which briefly comprises a primary school, shop/post office, newsagents, doctors surgery, public house, parish church and village hall. From both Tiverton and South Molton the A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to the M5 motorway (Junction 27).

Tenure 
The site is of freehold tenure with vacant possession available upon completion of the purchase.

Town and Country Planning 
The use of the buildings in recent years have been as storage/workshops by BT although there may be scope for prospective purchasers to consider alternative uses or possible future residential development, subject to obtaining any necessary planning and building regulation consent from Mid Devon Council. It is understood that BT retain ownership of the roadside bank to the front of the property.
