LOCATION

Bovey Tracey is in the heart of South Devon, in the South West of England.  Being situated equal distance between Plymouth and Exeter, makes the town highly desirable.  The Dartmoor National Park encompasses Bovey Tracey making the town a desirable tourist destination.

 

BUSINESS

The Hardware Store has been successfully run by the present owners for many years and has earned itself a fine reputation with visitors and locals alike.  Due to its unique location and niche market, the business has generated an impressive income for the present owners and is only now being offered for sale due to retirement. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.

 

DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY

We, the agents, feel that whilst the business is highly successful, the vast space on offer could provide a large residential element to the building by making a few simple changes to the retailing layout. To the front is an additional door leading to a rear inner corridor and a lovely large garden.
