Churches, cinemas, department stores and Post Offices have all been converted into pubs in recent years and now a new interesting opportunity for development has come on to the market through the Stonesmith Partnership in Exeter.
The former Railway Club in Exmouth was built in the 1950s and has until recently been operating as a private members' club. It has a bar, skittle alley, kitchen and cellar as well as a stone-slabbed forecourt and good views across the Exe Estuary.
"This is one of our more unusual instructions," a spokesman for Stonesmith said. "It is suitable for a whole range of uses, including licensed retail, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent."
The building has a club registration certificate and so would need a new application for any other licensed use.
According to Stonesmith, however, given its location, in an accessible part of the town next to Exmouth's main leisure complex, it is unlikely there will be any objections.
