Webber & Sons are Purveyors of traditional Hardware and General Merchandise, which includes a specialist cookware and kitchenware section; housewares and garden requisites; toys and leisure goods; china; glassware; gifts; and country clothing.
This is a retirement sale and the intention is to reduce the size of the existing retail shop in order to sell off another part of the site for residential development. This will leave a reduced sized Webber & Sons in the front part of the shop, with all the existing frontage and approximately 1,420 sq ft of retail shopping space. Upstairs will retain all the spacious first floor accommodation, which includes a Lounge and separate Dining Room, a Kitchen, a separate Utility Room, 4 Bedrooms. There are also two car parking spaces.
As an alternative proposition, prospective purchasers will also be interested to know that planning approval has been granted to convert the retail area into two smaller shop units. The planning approval also permits a conversion of the first floor accommodation into two separate Maisonettes, with accommodation on the first floor and in the currently unused roof space. Each Maisonette would have its own private access. The first Maisonette would have a Lounge/ Kitchen/ Dining Room and 4 Bedrooms. Whilst the second Maisonette would have a Lounge/ Kitchen/ Dining Room, a Study and 2 Bedrooms.
This business would probably suit a husband and wife team or other partnership with retail experience. A flair for merchandising and marketing might also be an advantage.
Webber & Sons is a traditional, bricks and mortar retail business and has no website or online sales, so this is an area that prospective purchasers may wish to consider investigating.
The two largest shops in Chagford are located side by side and these are Webber & Sons and James Bowden & Sons. Both of these long established businesses were originally hardware shops which have expanded into other areas. Both of these businesses contribute to the appeal of the Town.
Number of bedrooms: 4/5
There is spacious family accommodation in need of modernisation but with a Lounge and separate Dining Room, Kitchen, Utility Room, a large Bathroom, Shower Room and 4 Bedrooms.
Support & Training:
The Vendors will be pleased to give training and full assistance as required
