Property Description: DESCRIPTION
A unique and unusual opportunity to acquire a Grade II Listed Victorian Townhouse currently arranged as two individual properties but with enormous potential for the right buyer to create a wonderful family home with or without income potential or as an investment purchase. ACCOMODATION
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 and both are now being offered for sale for the first time in over 40 years. The building is double fronted as can be seen from the photographs and floorplan however the family room has been let since 2004 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.
9A 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 very 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.
9B Church Street is entered from the cobbled courtyard into a small entrance hall with the accommodation being arranged over the first and second floors. This property also has many character features but is in need of attention and improvement throughout. 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 build-in storage sheds and in turn leads to the rear courtyard. A pretty cobbled space with various shrub beds over which one other property also has access. From the courtyard a further private lane (used by 4 properties) leads to two private parking spaces - a precious commodity within the town!
This really is quite a special and versatile opportunity worthy of further exploration by any interested parties. Further information and discussion is available by calling the agents. 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. Some two hundred years ago it was extremely prosperous being the local market town and a centre for the wool trade. 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.
