Full Details

DESCRIPTION A unique and unusual opportunity to acquire a Grade II Listed Victorian townhouse providing accommodation over three floors. Included within the property is a commercial shop which is subject to a long-term tenancy providing a regular monthly income. A courtyard to the rear of the house gives access to a number of storage areas and further to a paved courtyard for outside seating from where a pathway leads to the off road parking space on Church Lane.

ACCOMMODATION Triggs House is a unique and exciting prospect in the heart of a much sought after Georgian market town. The property was divided vertically many years ago to create two individual properties. 9 Church street also holds the freehold of the flat next door. The building is double fronted as can be seen from the photographs and floorplan however the shop has been let since 1990 and is subject to a continuation tenancy under the Landlords and Tenants Act 1954. Should a potential purchaser not wish to adopt this tenancy it may be possible for this element of the building to be omitted from the sale.

9 Church Street can be accessed either through the front door on Church Street or from the courtyard entrance which leads out to the parking area. The accommodation is nicely presented and is arranged over 3 floors with the present owners using rooms on both the ground and first floor as reception/living spaces and the two second floor rooms as bedrooms. There are some lovely character features throughout the property; sash bay windows, original doors, ceiling coving and original built-in cupboards.

OUTSIDE From Church Street there are railings to one side of the house enclosing a substantial wooden gate. This opens into a private, covered alleyway with built-in storage sheds and in turn leads to the rear courtyard. A pretty cobbled space with various shrub beds over which two other properties also have access. From the courtyard a further private pathway (used by two other properties) leads to a private parking space – a precious commodity within the town!

SITUATION Modbury is a picturesque Georgian town situated in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, and is only about 4 miles from the nearest beach.

Today there is a good range of local shops including a butcher, baker, grocers, hardware store, chemist, delicatessen and a number of gift and antique shops. Other amenities include a primary school, health centre, dentist, veterinary surgery and mobile library. For more comprehensive shopping, Kingsbridge is to the South and Plymouth is about 12 miles to the West. Modbury is on the main bus route and is also only about five miles from the A38.
