7 Bedroom Detached Bungalow For Sale in Ashburton Road, Totnes

7 3

Fabulous home and income opportunity! Just under 3,000 square foot of living space. Located near to the town centre and railway station. There is hugely adaptable living space with potential for 7 bedrooms. 2 kitchens, 3 bathrooms and a large store room. Current planning use is C1. 0.252 acre site with extensive parking.

SELLERS INSIGHT I purchased the property back in 2014 and ran a day nursery from the premises. Since closing the business, I moved into the property and have acquired C1 planning. Having moved in, I carried out an extensive program of improvements and renovations to a high standard. Works include the updating of kitchens and bathrooms, new central heating and a partial re decoration of the building.

I have thoroughly enjoyed living here and have found the location to be excellent. It is within a short walk to the beautiful River Dart, town centre, train station and amenities. The site affords plenty of parking, a good size garden and leafy green surroundings. Unfortunately, due to other work commitments I do not have the time to develop the opportunities that this building has to offer.
