23 St Lawrence Lane is an end property in a row of just three, understood to have been built around the turn of the twentieth century for the Devon Constabulary as the town Police House.

It is very substantially built of brick beneath a slate roof, and with feature stone mullion windows to the front and side facades.

The rooms are nicely balanced and beautifully presented benefitting from lofty ceiling heights. The ground floor rooms have ceiling down lighters and the electrical light and power switches have a modern brushed aluminium finish. The interior door furniture has attractive silver chrome finishes.There is potential, if desired, to create additional accommodation by conversion of the roof space, subject to consents.

Outside, the property has the benefit of a garage, driveway parking and an enclosed lawned garden, a combination rarely found with such a centrally and conveniently positioned town house.

Indeed, the excellent local shops and amenities are just a short level walk away. Ashburton lies on the southern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park and just off the A38 Expressway, which provides quick and easy access to both Exeter and Plymouth. The town has an excellent post office, community arts centre and primary and senior schools.

From the centre of Ashburton, proceed into East Street and immediately right into St Lawrence Lane where number 23 will be found towards the end of the road, on the left.
