The first and second floor above Budleigh Salterton's former ice-cream shop The Creamery is to be turned into a five-bedroom house.

Planning documents have been submitted to East Devon District Council to turn 34, and 34a Fore Street into a five-bedroom dwelling with a rear extension into the garden. 

The shop, the former creamery will remain as a shop with the back of the ground floor being turned into a 'dwelling' with the first and second floors of 34,34a and 35 being turned into a five-bedroom house. The current storeroom at 34a will be turned into access for the new house. 

The proposed plans include a gym and atrium with a stairlift to access the second and third floors. The second and third floors will then be living space and study, with a sunspace overlooking the sea. 

The final decision on the application will be made by East Devon District Council.
