Property description

A fine development opportunity of a former Victorian school in an historic part of the town. PP for 9 dwellings plus existing 3-bed cottage. No affordable housing or Section 106 agreement.

Historical Note - In 1819 the National Parochial School was established in Old Town Street at a cost of £120 for 130 children with 90 boys and 40 girls, funded by a government grant of £40, local subscriptions and "children's pence". The Infants School was added in 1820 which catered for 140 children. There is a date stone stating 1871 which presumably is when the school was enlarged.
When the school closed, the property was acquired by the Dawlish Christian Fellowship who have been running it as a church. Due to the growth in the church, they are moving to purpose-built premises.
As seen from the photographs, the property has an attractive architectural style, typical of this era, of local stone with brick quoins under primarily slate roofs.

Situation - The property is set back from Old Town Street, backing onto Stockton Lane to the side. It is in the historic part of Dawlish, only a short walk from the centre of town and the sea front. Dawlish has a good range of facilities, good road communications plus rail and bus services.
The long sandy beach at Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve for walking, bird watching and golf is only 3 miles.
The university and cathedral city of Exeter is about 15 miles providing an extensive range of facilities befitting a centre of its importance.
