LOCATION
Westward Ho! represents a tourist trap destination just two miles from Bideford on the Torridge estuary and 11 miles from Barnstaple, North Devon's regional centre. Bideford has a population in the order of 13,000 and Westward Ho! combined with Northam has a population in the order of 9,500.

THE SITUATION
Nelson Road is the main arterial road which leads through this busy North Devon expanding resort village.  Westward Ho! is renowned for its pebble ridge, access to the Torridge estuary and the famous sandy beach.   Residential developers have taken advantage of the coastal location and views having constructed many unique coastal apartments.  The subject property is within the central core of the village close to the main municipal car park and village green.   Retailers close by include Nisa / Post Office, Co-Operative Supermarket, Hardware Shop, Chemist and Butchers.

THE PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION
The main building is of two storey construction with rendered elevations under a pitched slate roof.  There are latter single storey extensions to the rear which provide further floor space for the commercial parts which in total provides 1,837 sq.ft (171 sq.m).  To the front of the premises is a double fronted shop unit with considerable floor space behind including bakery, preparation areas and garages.  At first floor level is a two / three bedroomed flat with kitchen, lounge / diner and bathroom.  An important feature of the detached property is that it has its own private car park which is accessed via a driveway to the side of the property.  It is thought that new owners may seek to convert some of the commercial parts to residential units with off road car parking or undertake development within the rear car park, subject to suitable planning permission.

THE PROPOSAL
Our client is inviting offers for the Freehold interest with an "Overage Agreement" to be agreed for any development of the rear car park.
