One of Bidefordâ€™s oldest Mill Street eateries has been sold at auction for Â£181,000.Â
Cleverdonâ€™s is one of Bidefordâ€™s oldestÂ â€˜eating housesâ€™ and has beenÂ an integral part of Mill Street for decades.Â Â
The premises at 18 Mill Street sold for Â£181,000 â€“ some Â£6,000 above the lower end of theÂ freehold guide price.Â
Senior Auction Appraiser David Henwood said: â€œLocated within the pedestrianised zone in Bideford town centre, the property was among the lots in the sixth sale of 2021 by the regional land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.Â
â€œThis substantial mid-terrace property came with the benefit of living accommodation on its upper three floors.Â
â€œThe new owner may wish to continue its use as a licensed restaurant and takeaway but there is also scope for some sort of mixed-use or residential scheme too, subject to the necessary consents.â€Â
With a rear courtyard and outbuilding with two rooms, the property was listed with a guide of Â£175,000 to Â£200,000.
