Blossom Court was most recently a hair dressing salon which has the benefit of planning permission to convert the building into a residential dwelling (Mid Devon planning reference 20/00097/FULL). The project has commenced with building control too. The current owners have done a lot of the structural work already, with the property being stripped out and renovations are underway. So it’s now a shell for someone to come in and complete the works to create a home or investment. The internal walls are mainly in situ (depending on desired layout) and there’s the opportunity for a new owner, subject to permissions, to open up the kitchen to the living space for instance before continuing.
Outside, the gated driveway is mainly tarmac and has parking for many vehicles but this could be broken up and put to gardens whilst keeping a sizable parking area. The outside is very much open to interpretation and is a good sized plot.
Whilst it appears to be a big project, and it’s clearly not a “light refurb”, a lot of the major expense has been done so it’s now a question of continuing and finishing off. With the market not offering a great deal of properties for sale, we feel this is ideal for someone looking to live in the property with the opportunity to make it your own and at this price, it’s an affordable way of doing so.
Agents note: This is a project and will not be mortgageable with a standard mortgage as it stands although there are mortgage products for self-builders that may be useful.
The property is being sold with no onward chain.

From Crediton, head west towards Copplestone and pass through the traffic lights and bear right, staying on the A377. Continue through Morchard Road and when you reach Lapford Cross, you’ll see the petrol station on your right. Go to take the next left towards Nymet Rowland and Blossom Court is just on the junction on the left.
Lapford is a large village, beyond Morchard Road on the A377 – 9 miles from Crediton and 16 miles from the City of Exeter. Like most Devon parishes, it’s not far from a lovely collection of trees – Eggesford Forest is just up the way, a regal coniferous plantation that plays host to variety of creatures including adders, butterflies, buzzards and woodpeckers (and badgers!). The village itself has a primary school with an excellent Ofsted report, sizeable playing fields (with a football pitch and kid-friendly playground) and a busy pub – The Old Malt Scoop Inn, once a 16th Century coaching inn – which now offers an à la carte dining experience, using only the best local produce. There are excellent bus and train services within a very short walk for this property.
