Church Street is situated on the outskirts of Dawlish close to the surrounding countryside, and almost opposite St Gregory’s Church. Dawlish is a small seaside town approximately 10 miles from the Cathedral city of Exeter to the North and 10 miles to Torbay to the South. The town offers a full range of amenities including two post offices with banking facilities, local independent and chain shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. There is a Sainsburys supermarket on the outskirts of town and nearby Teignmouth has a Morrisons supermarket and a Lidl.

Nearby beaches include Coryton Cove, a lovely sheltered sandy beach, and Town Beach. Dawlish Warren is a pleasant walk away along the seafront and sea wall offering holiday camp facilities, cycle paths, wildlife centre and Warren Golf Club as well as further sandy beaches and nature reserve.

The surrounding countryside is a haven for walkers and cyclists with the Haldon Hills and Dartmoor National Park within a short driving distance. There are 18 hole golf courses at Dawlish Warren and Teignmouth as well as sailing facilities on the nearby Exe and Teign Estuaries.

A regular bus service runs nearby to both Dawlish and Teignmouth town centres as well as Exeter, Newton Abbot and Torquay. Dawlish Rail Station is on the main Penzance to London Paddington line with regular trains to Exeter and London, or to Cornwall in the other direction.


This attractive double fronted semi-detached period home was built circa 120 years ago with brick elevations under a pitched roof. The property retains some original features such as the front door, and fireplaces. Accommodation briefly comprises of a sitting room, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and WC to the ground floor. To the first floor are the two double bedrooms. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing. Outside to the rear is a walled yard with wrought iron gates to a side access lane. Here there is space for a shed and for parking motorcycles and bicycles or potentially a small car, as the current owners have done in the past. The property would benefit from improvement throughout but offers good investment potential as a buy to let with an estimated potential rental income of approx. £800 – £850 pcm.


The original wood front door opens to an entrance vestibule with a pair of glazed doors opening to the hall and stairs. Doors either side open to the reception rooms. The sitting room is of a good size with a large window to the front allowing in plenty of natural light. There is a fireplace in the chimney breast although we cannot confirm if it is operational, and serving hatch to the kitchen. The kitchen/dining room again has a large window to the front and an attractive wooden parquet floor which could likely be restored to its former glory. At the rear of the room is the kitchen area consisting of base and wall units above and below the worktops with inset stainless steel sink. The combi boiler is located here and there is space for a freestanding cooker and space and plumbing for a washing machine. Beyond the kitchen is an under stair storage area with further units leading to the back door, bathroom including a white suit with chrome fittings comprising bath with shower over, basin and a separate WC.

Upstairs off the split landing are two double bedrooms, one of which is of a particularly good size with a storage cupboard over the stairs. Both rooms have windows to the front and a pleasant outlook.


To the rear of the property is a concrete courtyard area accessed off a side lane enclosed by a stone wall and wrought iron gates. There is space for a shed and parking motorbikes and bicycles, and the current owners have parked a small car here in the past.
