Sold £146,000

A freehold character building located in the heart of Dawlish being convenient for the town centre and the seafront, benefitting from confirmation that prior approval is not required for change of use from office to three upper floor flats to include incorporation of the tower with its sea views.

There was also Planning Permission granted in May 2013 that amongst other things gave approval for a fourth flat on the first floor. In this respect conversion works have commenced with the erection of partitioning framework. Interested parties must make their own enquiries as to whether a valid start has been commenced to this consent.

The ground floor is currently vacant commercial space along with ancillary accommodation and may have potential for a variety of uses including further residential, perhaps incorporating some internal parking by way of the two existing access points off High Street, subject to any necessary consents being obtainable.


The principal floorspace lies over the ground and first floors, the tower adding to the total area as does the basement.
