Property Description: SITUATION
The unique and charming market town of Totnes sits above the River Dart in the heart of the South Hams. The town is one of Devon's gems, the birthplace of the Transition Town movement in England and nominated in British Airways' HighLife magazine as one of the world's top ten funky towns. Full of colour and character, its atmosphere is cosmopolitan with a West Country flavour and those looking for history, alternative therapies and beautiful countryside will find it in and around Totnes. The town is said to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain. With a twice-a-week market and full of small independent shops, it's well-known for ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. It is the second oldest borough in England, with an ancient Guildhall and Church, a Norman Castle and its North and East Gates. There is a well-regarded community college and a mainline railway station and Dartmoor, the South Hams and many of its fine beaches are within easy reach. DESCRIPTION
A rare opportunity to purchase a fantastic detached property, situated in the centre of Totnes town down a secluded road with views of Totnes Castle and views towards Dartmoor in the distance. The house is approached through a gateway in the wall adjacent to the historic North Gate, opening to a secluded courtyard garden that wraps around the house. The house offers plenty of light, with a spacious feeling throughout and flexible accommodation. With two downstairs bedrooms and a shower room, there is potential to convert into a separate annexe.
The accommodation briefly comprises entrance hallway with original flooring and French doors leading to the stunning open plan lounge/diner.

The current owners have allowed space for a large dining table and two separate sitting areas. Off the lounge, is a useful study/home office. The modern kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units, with additional full height built in storage. There are two electric ovens, ceramic hob, space for a full height fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine. A door leads to the rear garden. Across the hallway are two downstairs bedrooms. Along with a downstairs shower room, there is great potential to create a separate annexe with access through the studio room.
On the first floor, are 3 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has built in storage and an en-suite comprising bath, walk in shower, w.c and handbasin. The second bedroom also has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is a small double.
