This flexible freehold sale comes with great income potential and comprises of a 2/3 bed cottage, convenience-shop business, take away café and Airbnb accommodation all in very good condition. Early viewings are highly recommended.

This large, terraced property is situated in the very heart of the sought-after Devon village of Kennford. The village has an active community that supports the village convenience store very well. There is a convenient local bus service and it is only a short distance to the seaside town of Torquay and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its world-renowned University, M5 motorway, Paddington direct train line and International airport. Also, nearby is Haldon Forest with many forest walks and activities and within a short drive is Dartmoor National Park and some spectacular beaches.

This successfully owner operated convenience business has been nurtured for many years and comes with an open post office which draws custom from a wide geographical area. It provides an extensive range of convenience products as well as operating a fully equipped kitchen with a popular café. This thriving business will be sold with a comprehensive hand over to ensure its continued success. A new owner will be complimented by an existing team of staff to ensure day-to-day smooth operation, but we the agents feel there is plenty of scope to increase the existing turnover by expanding the convenience operation into the café / kitchen which would add approx. 50% of valuable retailing space. Also, the current owners rent out accommodation successfully on Airbnb which providing an additional impressive income. Actual trading figures will be made available following formal success viewing.
