On the Western edge of Crediton is a historic red brick building, originally built in 1836 as the Crediton Union Workhouse and later used by the NHS. It’s an interesting Grade II Listed building set in some lovely established grounds. Now known as The Lodge, it was converted into residential apartments during the late 80’s and 90’s. All properties have use of the large communal gardens and there is plenty of parking too. Being on the town edge, it’s a level walk into the town and a bus stop can be found at the top of the drive.
Unlike a lot of the properties here, flat 10 is on the ground floor and as such, has two entrance doors to the level pathway through the gardens and with large sash windows to the south side. There’s even a small yard area outside, enough for a private table and chairs as well as use of the communal gardens.
Having been let for a few years, the property is now being offered for sale. There’s a huge amount of space for the money and although it would benefit from some cosmetic improvements, it’s got a lot to offer. The “front door” comes into a hallway leading to the 3 bedrooms and the bathroom. The large living/dining room has high ceilings and beautiful windows letting in plenty of light and the kitchen also has a door to the communal gardens.
The large grounds are able to be used by the owners and are maintained as part of the management plan - ideal for enjoying the summer or drying clothes. There is plenty of parking for visitors too.
The property is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

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.
