Property Description

8 The Quay is a substantial terraced building situated in a mixed parade of shops, restaurants and bars leading down towards the town's pier and sitting immediately adjacent to the picturesque harbour. The property enjoys wonderful views over the inner harbour towards Hillsborough and from the rear over the Bristol Channel and rugged coastline towards Wales in the distance.

The building has been maintained and improved externally but internally it is literally a shell with bare stone walls and a few of the supporting studwork frames. The property offers a proper renovation project but the stripped back nature of the building does provide a blank canvass for the new owner to redesign the layout and accommodation from scratch and subject to any necessary consent as required. All mains services are available to the building.

Outside, at the rear, there is a large court yard garden with a single storey stone built store and an additional two storey stone built store at the far end.

We understand that the most recent use for the property was as a ground floor shop together with flats above and therefore a commercial use class more than likely still exists on part of the building (A1 - retail). There are four storeys of accommodation. We strongly advise consultation with North Devon District Council Planning Department and Building Control to check the options for the use of or changes/renovations to the building prior to any legal commitment.

The location is truly outstanding with the property sitting immediately adjacent to the harbour but also right in amongst the various shops, restaurants, wine bars and public houses, cafes and art galleries within the sea front area including 'Weatherspoon’s' public house and the Michelin starred 'Thomas Carr @ 1873' restaurant. Damien Hirst's "Verity" statute stands prominently on Ilfracombe pier and has been the catalyst for a great number of visitors to the town over the past five years. Ilfracombe sea front has a real buzz about it and sees plenty of tourists during the summer season. The high street with its selection of small independent shops and amenities are again just a short distance away and there are schools for all ages as well as Tesco, Lidl and Co-Op Supermarkets. .

There is always something to see on a day to day basis as the harbour forms one of Ilfracombe’s main attractions and is the area from which the town built its foundations as a working fishing port and hub for importing coal back in the early Victorian era and then latterly becoming a thriving tourist resort thereafter. The sea front area in particular has seen huge investment in recent

North Devon has a huge amount to offer with the fabulous golden sand surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton just a short car ride away. The Exmoor National Park is also within easy reach and enjoys some breath-taking scenery and miles and miles of walking. North Devon’s main trading centre, Barnstaple, is approximately 12 miles away and has many of the big name shops. There is also a rail link to Exeter which then connects directly to the major stations in London. The main A361 North Devon Link road also connects from Barnstaple and joins the M5 at junction 27.

8 The Quay represents a very rare opportunity to purchase a property in one of Ilfracombe's most sought after locations and we fully advise an early internal inspection. The property is un-mortgageable due to its current conditions so will only be available to cash buyers.
