Situation

Exeter City centre is just 3.5 miles away and the glorious East Devon coastline is within twenty minutes' drive.

Description

Constructed in 1776 and once described as the 'best house in the town', Broadway House is a splendid Grade II* Listed Georgian residence, refurbished throughout, creating a fantastic family home with spacious adaptable accommodation of over 5000 sq ft. The house retains a large number of fine period features, notably an impressive wide staircase, sash windows with wooden shutters, fireplaces and decorative cornicing in a number of the rooms. On the ground floor, accessed from a grand entrance hall, is a drawing room and a stunning modern kitchen, open through to the dining and sitting room. In addition there is a room used as gym with shower room, and a very useful back kitchen, utility and boot room. There is also a guest WC and a gardener’s WC. From the kitchen and courtyard, stairs lead down to a lower ground floor annexe which could provide accommodation for a relative or au pair/staff, with a bedroom, shower room, kitchen and sitting room. Going back to the main accommodation, on the first floor are 3 large bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, plus a study/bedroom 7 with en-suite. On the second floor are 3 further large bedrooms, again all with en-suite facilities, plus a large home office with en-suite and a linen room. The second floor has lovely views to the front, across Topsham roof tops to the Haldon hills and glimpses of the river. A fixed ladder leads up to a large boarded attic with access to the roof. There is also access via a separate 'back' staircase from the rear of the house to the first floor, giving the potential to run part of the house as up to 5 guest rooms, to bring in very useful income if desired. Outside, the walled garden is mainly laid to lawn to the front and side, providing a secluded, sunny area with a patio, perfect for dining al-fresco. The rear courtyard parking area is accessed via electric gates from Station Road. There are also various, useful storage sheds.

SIGNIFICANT INCOME POTENTIAL, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The house is purely residential at the moment but the Vendor has advised the agent that it is possible to let the top floor without requiring ‘Change of Use’ to Commercial planning consent from the Local Authority.

If the buyers would prefer to revert to running the property as a commercial entity (once they have obtained the relevant permission/consent/insurance), there are various options:

1) Rent the rooms on a nightly basis. There could be 9 letting rooms in total (including the room which is currently used as a gym).
Previously the rooms have been let out at £125 per night Friday or Saturday and £105 weekdays & Sundays.
Guests can access the gates and door using a pin code, so no staff are required to check people in, unless desired.

2) The building could potentially be run with 5 letting rooms on the top floor; all accessed via the guest staircase. The remaining part of the property could then be used as a 3-4 bedroom house to live in or rent out separately.

Rooms have been let out very successfully in the past, obtaining an average rating of 8.9/10 on Booking.com. Please see www.broadwayhousetopsham.co.uk for details. Guests have included university parents, holiday makers, people visiting on business, Marine passing out parades, bird-watchers and water-sports enthusiasts.
