The property is tucked away in the centre of Alphington “village”, approximately 2 miles from Exeter City Centre. There are good local amenities close at hand, together with frequent bus services. Nearby is the extensive Marsh Barton Trading Estate.
The premises comprise a detached single storey former chapel which is believed to date from the late 19th Century, and which was more recently extended to provide more up to date ancillary accommodation. The building is not listed but is in a Conservation Area.
Informal discussions with the local planning authority indicate that any planning proposals would need to demonstrate a lack of demand for community-related uses before other alternatives would be supported.
