Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

A wonderful opportunity to be involved in the restoration of this Regency period building in one of the most notable locations in Tavistock town centre. 1, Church Lane is an elegant and unique building within the town which occupies a particularly prominent location next to St Eustachius' parish church, enjoying some picturesque views overlooking the churchyard to Bedford Square and Plymouth Road.

Designed by John Foulston as a residence, the property was occupied by Ward & Chowen Chartered Surveyors for approximately 100 years.

The property has planning permission for A3 use at present although a variety of other uses will be considered (there will be an absolute prohibition against A2 (Estate Agency) use). There is an opportunity now for an occupier to create an internal layout to his own requirements and specification (subject to planning). Over the course of the next 6-9 months, this property will be renovated and It is anticipated that the building will be ready for occupation/fitting out in the early part of 2016.

The Ground Floor is divided up into various rooms which may be reconfigured subject to planning permission. The Ground Floor has been used as a restaurant with storage behind, although the storage accommodation could be used as a kitchen facility or a retail unit. The first floor level is currently divided up into four office rooms and on the second floor are presently several attic rooms which could be converted into residential accommodation, subject to the necessary consents and approvals.

Outside, there is a small enclosed courtyard situated next to the kitchen and a gravelled garden to the front of the building.

A two bedroom flat on the first floor, with its own separate entrance off Garden Lane, may be available by separate negotiation.

Tavistock is a thriving market town with a population of approximately 12,500 which is set to increase with the addition of a further 600-700 houses over the course of the next few years. It has good shopping facilities, including Fat Face, New Look, Boots and W H Smiths on the high street, and is one of the most prosperous towns in the area. The town centre, in which 1, Church Lane is situated, is designated as a conservation area and many of the buildings are Grade II listed, including the town hall, former magistrates court and the prestigious Bedford Hotel. Tavistock is approximately 15 miles from Plymouth where there is a cross-Channel ferry service to Roscoff, Brittany and a railway station at Plymouth which is situated on the main Paddington to Penzance line.
