Property Description: SITUATION
Situated in the historic town of Totnes, within a minutes walk of the High Street and all the shops and amenities the town has to offer, this five bedroomed deceptively spacious period townhouse must be viewed to appreciate the wealth of character behind the blue front door. DESCRIPTION
Entering the property by the bright blue front door into the entrance hallway, through into the sitting room with useful built in storage cupboard. A wonderful wood and glass panelled wall separates the sitting room from the dining room with another built in storage cupboard, with an open staircase to the first floor. The dining room leads through to the kitchen and then through French doors to the conservatory and ground floor shower room. Stepping out of the conservatory into the sunny walled courtyard garden with a workshop, which is abundant with summer flowers and vegetables completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor comprises a light bathed galleried landing, created by three large velux panels, two bedrooms, study and bathroom, with stairs to the second floor, where the two attic bedrooms can be found. Both with views across Totnes.
The property has a wealth of original features such as stone walls, fireplaces and sash windows. The fireplaces in two of the bedrooms were mentioned in the Pevsner Architectural Guides for their historic and architectural merit. TOTNES
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. SERVICES
