The Brick House is located along East Street, which contains some of the town’s most distinctive and architecturally interesting buildings, of which the Brick House is certainly one.

Ashburton is a bustling town with a thriving commercial centre which supports a variety of interesting shops and businesses including a large number of antiques, craft and specialist food shops which draw in many visitors.

It is an excellent centre from which to explore Devon and Dartmoor, with the A38 allowing quick links to Plymouth (24 miles) and Exeter (18 miles) with the M5 motorway network beyond. The town has both primary and secondary schools as well as the Sands independent school.


The Brick House is a spacious attached Grade II Listed property with a large private walled garden at the rear. It is currently home to a well known restaurant/café which was originally established in 1996.

The commercial side of the property currently occupies the whole of the ground floor, with spacious four/five bedroomed living accommodation on the upper floor. It should be noted that no major alterations to the building took place to create the café restaurant and the rooms very much retain the period features and feel of a private town house. It would be very easy to reinstate the property to a full residential dwelling and planning permission has been granted for this.

The walled garden is a real feature and a rare find for such a centrally and conveniently placed property. It is very private and enjoys a sunny south-east facing aspect.


From our offices in the centre of Ashburton, proceed up East Street for approximately two hundred yards where The Brick House will be found on the right.
