Chichester House formally known as Barricane Hotel, presents a unique opportunity for investment in a grand semi-detached property rich with history, photos of which can be found to this day along the walls.

Nestled along the stunning Devon coastline, the residence offers uninterrupted panoramic views of Woolacombe, Barricane, and Combesgate beaches.

There is the potential for various uses, with planning being granted for various neighbouring properties. Most of the internal walls are stud, meaning a reconfiguration would be cost-effective.
