Built in 1901, this elegant Edwardian home sits proudly on Fore Street in the sought after village of Uffculme. Formerly the Newsagents and offering vast living accommodation arranged over two floors, this property has been in the same ownership for the last 46 years and boasts enormous scope to improve and extend, subject to the necessary planning applications.
The accommodation briefly comprises of:- an entrance hallway, three reception rooms, two shop rooms and a wc cloakroom. To the first floor, there is a kitchen/diner, a sitting room and three double bedrooms with a family bathroom and separate wc. All rooms offer a wealth of original features, enjoying high skirtings and ceilings, large windows and ornate fireplaces, indicative of the era in which this substantial character property was built. The rooms benefit from plenty of natural light and are all superbly proportioned.
What is immediately evident is the versatility this property enjoys, lending itself to all manner of possibilities; this home provides truly amazing space with not only the shop but also the 37ft attic which could be incorporated into the main structure of the house subject to the necessary planning consents.
Externally to the rear of the property, there is a fully enclosed wall garden enjoying a patio space and two side gated access points. The property is perfectly positioned within walking distance to all amenities and within easy access to rail and motorway links.
Planning permission was granted in July 2005 for conversion of the commercial shop rooms into the main residential premises and lapsed in July 2010, a potential purchaser must make the necessary enquires with Mid Devon District Council for change of use if required.
