Situation and description
Newton Abbot is a busy market town, being the commercial centre and heart of the Teignbridge area with a district population of approximately 121,000 extending to some 300,000 within 12.5 miles of the centre. Newton Abbot benefits from a wide catchment area drawing from a large number of small towns and villages in the surrounding area. The premises are just a short walk from the town centre in one direction or the Main Line Railway Station in the other. Newton Abbot offers convenient access to the A380 Exeter to Torquay dual carriageway joining with the M5 Motorway at Exeter, which is approximately 15 miles distant, or Torbay and Torquay to the South which is approximately 10 miles distant.
The premises are centrally and prominently located fronting the top end of Queen Street, the main spine road running through the town offering a high degree of visibility for any occupier. The property is convenient for a number of public car parks and the professional office area of Devon Square and St Pauls Road. Due to its prominent frontage to Queen Street, the premises would ideally suit either a retail or Office user seeking to gain a presence in this busy market town. The Maisonette is currently tenanted but can be provided with vacant possession and would benefit from modernisation including the installation of central heating and upgrading of the kitchen and bathroom facilities. The property would therefore suit an owner occupier or Investor looking to relet the shop and the maisonette above.
