Situated in a town location with great access to transport links to Exeter and Crediton’s amenities, this period terrace property is a former Post Office but has most recently been run as an antiques business with adjoining work studio. In addition to these two ground floor rooms, there is private and spacious residential accommodation behind and above. Due to the property being part commercial and part residential (although the residential is the significant portion) a buyer should check with their lender before offering to buy. It would suit someone looking to continue a business while working on site or to split the building into separate letting units or even convert it all into flats or houses – Subject to necessary permissions of course.
The whole property has been recently repainted and much of the original frontage has been restored over the past couple of years in line with the history and character of this unique property.
The 2000sq ft of accommodation includes the self-contained shop with internal access to the main living accommodation which consists of a living room (or studio) on the ground floor plus a sun room which overlooks the courtyard, and a modern kitchen dining room and a WC/utility. On the first floor are four double bedrooms, including a particularly large master bedroom with en-suite shower room, plus two further facilities for the bedrooms - a family bathroom and a separate shower room. The whole property enjoys mains gas central heating.
There is also a pretty courtyard garden to the rear (7m x 5.1m) which is a lovely addition to the property. There is a covered seating area for al fresco dining whatever the weather! It is worth noting that there is an enclosed alleyway which runs from the front and goes as far as the sun-room (the neighbouring property’s garden also has use of this secure alleyway).
Agents Note: Should someone wish to buy items within the property (either commercial or residential) to run a shop or simply enjoy, the owners are open to offers on the contents too!

CREDITON : 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.
