A unique opportunity to acquire a stunning approx. one-acre site located in Exeter which currently benefits from a 4 x bedroom owners’ accommodation and substantial commercial building with over 5000 sq. feet (475 sq.m) of uninterrupted floor space which includes an office and reception. With detailed previously passed consent for a six-bedroom replacement of existing residential accommodation. The site also benefits from a long-established static home and several outbuildings. Currently owner occupied, it will be sold with vacant possession. Early viewings are highly recommended.


The site is situated on St Andrews Road, Exeter, Devon which is a secluded area and is surrounded by mature trees and a leat running along one side. The entrance is very wide with good splayed visual display and the main yard is very large which can easily accommodate and provide parking and a turning circle for large commercial vehicles. All main arterial roads are nearby and the M5 motorway and Exeter town centre are only 10/15 min away.


Upon entering the site, you will be impressed by the large yard / parking which accommodates several outbuilding structures for the storage of timber and immediately to one side is the reception / office and the industrial space to the rear. Whilst the reception is timber built, the remaining commercial space to the rear is steel frame constructed. Originally built for the MOD and now offers approx. just over 5000 of floor space.


The residential accommodation is located on the ground floor and comprises of four bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, family bathroom and large glazed door leading out to a large secluded enclosed garden. The accommodation benefits from gas central heating and a lovely log burner. The floor area is approx. 1000 sq. ft (88 sq.m) However there is detailed lapsed planning for a six-bedroom replacement accommodation.


To the front of the site is a large, splayed entrance with secure gates and upon entering the yard you will be impressed by the large turning circle and parking on offer. To one side are two timber storage buildings and to the rear of this is a long established static home in a secluded area. The parking is surfaced with loose stone chippings and the site is surrounded by mature planting and trees with a leat running to one side and benefitting from beautiful views over the fields beyond.


Planning permission was obtained in August 2015 to upgrade the owner’s accommodation to a six-bedroom contemporary ground floor spacious unit.
