  • Conversion of main building to apartments and 3 new build dwellings

Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Furzedene is a large detached Edwardian house set in approximately one acre of grounds flanked by mature trees and hedging. It is largely concealed from West Hill Lane due to the topography and tree and shrub screening. It is located in a conservation area not far from the town centre with a relatively level walk from the property east along West Hill Lane where the footpath joins Little Knowle Road and this links with a pavement at the junction with the main road into town.

Planning permission has been granted by East Devon District Council to provide division of Furzedene House horizontally into three apartments and for 3 new build building plots within the grounds for 3 houses. There may be scope to convert the main house into 4 large apartments (subject to the requisite consents) by splitting the lower ground and ground floors into two apartments rather than the currently approved one large duplex unit.

Each apartment has a dedicated parking area and there is ample space for visitor parking. Access to Furzedene for vehicles and pedestrians is via a gravelled drive from the main entrance in West Hill Lane, there is also a separate entrance for pedestrians.


East Devon District Council granted Planning Permission (Ref.16/1998/FUL) for the existing four-storey dwelling to be subdivided into 3 apartments with the addition of 3 new dwellings to form a courtyard development around the existing house on 20th June 2017. Copies of the plans and planning permission are available upon request from the agents.


The method of sale is flexible, and although the owner's preference would be to either retain plot "E" or both plots "D" and "E" (the two western plots) for herself, offers are invited. Consideration would be given to offers for the whole property or the main house and the Coach House plot to the east of the house, or to include plot "D" in the north west corner of the site. Consideration may also be given to offers for the whole with either a build contract or joint venture arrangement of some form whereby the owner retains the eventual house on plot "E" with a sum of cash up front.


This popular seaside town is situated on the beautiful National Heritage Coast between the larger towns of Sidmouth and Exmouth. Originally the hamlet of Salterton on the Rolle Estate, Budleigh Salterton developed in the early 19th Century and essentially consists of an assortment of cottages and Victorian villas as well as impressive early 20th Century residences.

The town benefits from a good range of local shopping and other facilities as well as cricket, bowls, croquet, tennis clubs, museum, restaurants and a highly regarded Cliff-top Golf Course. A more extensive range of amenities and educational facilities are available in the near-by University and Cathedral City of Exeter, where there is also a railway station with main line connections to Bristol and London, an International airport and access to the M5 motorway. Sailing is available on the Exe Estuary and lovely walks can be enjoyed on the South West coastal path and on Woodbury Common a few miles inland, where there is another popular and well known golf course at Woodbury Park.
