Development opportunity - Victorian industrial buildings with planning to convert into 3 unique homes & a new B1 unit in 0.67 acres (0.27 ha)


This unique development opportunity is set back from the main road and positioned on the edge of Sidford, just outside of the Regency town of Sidmouth. Located next to the cycle path, there is easy access into the town via The Byes.

The Regency town of Sidmouth, located along the stunning Jurassic Coastline in East Devon, is famed for its range of historic buildings, fine hotels, wide promenade and clean beaches. With a lively local community, the town supports a wide range of facilities including independent shops, banks, theatre, cinema and sports centre with swimming pool.


Built in the Victorian era this substantial brick building and outhouses has full planning consent to convert into 4 unique homes looking over the Sid Vale. Operated at one time as a laundry, this former industrial building has a wonderful character and heritage that blends perfectly with a modern conversion and development.

The planning permission granted under ref 18/1169/FUL dated 18 January 2019 illustrates a conversion scheme with three homes in the main building, a live/work unit and a modern 1,593 sq ft space for B1 office use. Japanese Knotweed on the site, which is 3 years through a treatment program.

In all the site extends to approximately 0.41 Acres
