LOVELY GRADE II* LISTED APARTMENT AND COMMERCIAL SPACE.

Docton Court is a Grade II* listed building. It is the only building with this designation in Appledore.
It was constructed in 1604 by Thomas Docton as a private Customs House under the ‘Customs Farm’ scheme set up under James I. No other purpose-built Customs building is believed to exist in Britain from this period, so the property can be rightly said to be ‘unique’. A full history of the property, produced by historian David Carter, the present owner, will accompany this sale.
The building was fully restored from a shell by the present owners in 2004, and offers many original features including exposed roof beams, plaster mouldings and oak or slate floors throughout.

Gas-powered heating with new boiler installed January 2024. Underfloor heating to upper floor.

Ground Floor
The Ground Floor contains a retail lock-up shop, with its own WC, Kitchen, and Storeroom/Workshop.
The Courtyard in front of the building is under the same Freehold, which also contains a hidden drying area, log-store, and space for recycling boxes.
The present owners will be vacating the shop (trading as Docton Court Gallery) at the end of Sept 2024.

A new tenancy agreement is being arranged for the ground floor shop, so the building is likely to be offered for sale with a ‘sitting retail tenant’ who will have with a 5-year lease, containing a 2-year break clause, at an agreed rate of £500 pcm. The Courtyard has also been offered to the use of the new tenant.

First Floor
The First Floor apartment is accessed via a covered staircase to the right of the building. This floor used to house the administrative offices for the Custom House, and contained granite fireplaces and moulded plaster friezes, all which have been restored, and are part of the current configuration of the apartment.

The internal layout contains:
A large living/dining area, with partly screened off kitchen.
Mezzanine levels which overlook the living area, accessed by fixed ladders.
Large master bedroom with storage areas and built in wardrobes.
Separate shower room, containing cupboard for washing machine & dryer.
The mezzanine levels can be used for guest sleeping areas accommodating 4 additional people.
Oak boarded floors throughout except for Kitchen and Bathroom, which are slate.
All with south-facing windows and a side-view to the river.
The roof was insulated to 2004 building regulation standards.
The windows are mostly single-glazed but have internal thermal shutters.
The granite fireplaces are usable and can be used for open fires in the winter months.

Planning and Listed applications are currently with Torridge District Council to install Velux rooflights above the mezzanine areas.
