Full description

A very prominent site containing a period 3-storey house in need of complete renovation plus large yard/car park and substantial range of commercial buildings - brilliant development potential (stp)


This prominently located site extends in all to about a third of an acre and is consists of large 3-storey house, large commercial yard/car park, and range of commercial buildings. The property has a wide range of possible uses and would suit many trades and professions who are looking for a prominent location in Crediton. It adjoins Exeter Road, and is convenient for the large Tesco superstore, Shell fuel garage, train station and bus stop. The High Street is about half a mile to the north with its wide range of facilities. In the opinion of the agents there is excellent development potential and a great opportunity to change and enhance the gateway to Crediton. The house itself contains spacious 4 bedroomed accommodation over 4 floor levels, in need of complete refurbishment and renovation.  The commercial buildings are mainly brick and corrugated construction. 

Please note that some of the garages to the north of the site can be purchased by separate negotiation. 


Mains electricity, water and sewer are available for connection on site, please make your own enquiries concerning capacities and additional connections to the statutory undertakers direct.


We are informed that the vehicular access to the site was altered when Midas Homes carried out their nearby development a few years ago to the approval of Devon County Highways at the time.   


The property is available on a freehold basis with vacant possession on completion.


VAT will not be charged on the sale of the land. 


Mid Devon District Council have historically indicated that a residential scheme of up to 4 new build houses to the north of the site and refurbishing and converting the main house into 2 apartments and converting the warehouse to the south of the main house into 2 apartments. The new dwellings should be designed to be  linear style with roof levels, maintaining and enhancing the rhythm of the existing brick buildings, whilst providing garden and parking space at the rear.  

A Pre App, reference 15/01811/PREAPP, was submitted last year, enquiring whether Mid Devon would allow the main house to be demolished.  Mid Devon stated that it would resist the demolition of the main house as it is in a Conservation Area.  For demolition to be allowed a strong case would have to be made that the main house was in a poor structural condition; that the buildings are not significant in the Conservation Area and proof that the retention of the main house would make the site unviable to develop.  Further information concerning the Pre App is available by contacting the Helmores office direct.


The property is offered for sale by private treaty.  The vendor is seeking to dispose of the site on an unconditional basis.  

CREDITON is an ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive NW from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 AD. Its High Street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.  


• If arriving in Crediton on the A377 from Exeter, proceed past Tesco superstore, and the Shell garage into Exeter Road. After about 200 yards the site will be seen on the left. Turn left into Park Road, and immediately left again into the site entrance. 

• From the centre of Crediton proceed towards the lower end of the town going towards Exeter, and the site will be seen on the right hand side of Exeter Road.
