  • Set In Expanding Town on Edge of Dartmoor With Good Access To Exeter

A LONG ESTABLISHED and PROFITABLE HAIR SALON business and FREEHOLD premises set in a CENTRAL TOWN LOCATION. The BUSINESS is now being sold due to the RETIREMENT of the current owners, having been first ESTABLISHED in 1972 with members of the owners family having established a barber shop in the building from 1856. The attractive freehold building is a terraced, mainly stone period building thought to date from the 18th century, with a shop/salon area with wide window front and street entrance door. There is a further salon area to the rear and a first floor salon as well. The first floor and attic room above were once used for residential accommodation and offer the potential for this to be repeated subject to planning consent. There is a single storey extension to the rear with a large further salon area, kitchen/utility and customer WC. This may also offer the potential for sub-dividing into a separate commercial unit. The property benefits from a vehicular and pedestrian right of way through an adjoining archway which leads around to the rear where there is a level parking area with parking for three to four cars and an enclosed courtyard. There is plenty of potential to expand the current business due to the usable floor area and three salon areas, or to re-organise the property to generate additional income from letting.


The property is set towards the eastern side of the central retail area of the bustling former market town of Okehampton which offers an extensive variety of shops and businesses in the town including supermarkets including waitrose and The White Hart Hotel (Wetherspoon Pub). There is also well regarded primary and secondary schooling, a health centre, leisure centre and many sports facilities. The town is a popular destination also for visitors with its immediate access to the Dartmoor National Park and location just off the A30 dual carriageway, with easy access to the Cathedral City of Exeter or West into Cornwall.
