10 High Street is a period Grade II Listed terraced premises which extends over 5 floors with a prominent frontage in the heart of the bustling market town of Crediton. The 1,000sqft shop (with cellar under) has successfully been run as Newsagents for the last 50 years and is now the only shop of its kind in the town, offering traditional services as well National Lottery sales and Wool Shop. Numerous other businesses could be run from here, depending on the next owner’s desires and subject to permissions if change of use is required. The inner lobby leads to handy stores, a staff kitchen and separate WC.
The living accommodation is massive, has wonderful high ceilings and period features on show too. Accessed from the inner lobby the stunning turning staircase, with a cloakroom on the half landing, leads to the first floor. The expansive living room measures some 25’ x 15’, the lovely open plan dining kitchen has a centre island, space for a gas range style cooker, an external staircase and utility room and the office/bedroom 7 completes this floor. Proceeding up the turning staircase with a full length window we reach the 2nd floor which includes four double bedrooms, a superb bath & shower room (four-clawed freestanding bath, separate double shower, WC, sink & bidet) and a separate shower room – both were new in 2015. A further staircase leads to the 2nd sitting room (ample space to add a kitchen and shower room if desired) with a further two double bedrooms, bringing us to six or seven bedrooms depending on how the current office is used. There is mains gas central heating throughout and all windows were replaced on refurbished in 2016.
Outside: To the rear is gated parking for 4-5 cars, with an attractive paved garden at the top. There is a further outbuilding for storage/potential workshop, which could be converted into a bungalow style annexe subject to necessary permissions.
It is very rare for such a prominent shop, with such wonderful accommodation, which could easily fit a large family of 7 – 12 members, to come to the market and we believe offers fantastic value for money, so contact us for more information, or to arrange your viewing.

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.
