Devon Terrace, Totnes, Devon
1 Devon Terrace is a beautifully maintained period townhouse which has many original features. With gracious and spacious accommodation over 3 floors, 5 double bedrooms and plenty of space for a home office or two, it is a wonderful flexible family home. It benefits from pretty gardens to three sides, parking and plenty of storage plus a large garage, and is in a wonderful location opposite Bridgetown Stores and a short level walk into Totnes town.
The house is entered via a solid wood door into a small vestibule with original tiled floor and room for coats and shoes, this leads through an original Victorian half glazed door into the hallway. With stripped wooden flooring throughout, period features and wonderful high ceilings the property has a very elegant feel to it. At the front is a large sitting room with striking open fireplace with marble surround. This lovely light room has the original sash windows (with secondary glazing) overlooks the front garden and provides a spacious but cosy space.
The dining room again has stripped floors, high ceilings and another fabulous fireplace with the original Victorian tiles and impressive slate surround.
Further along the hall are two useful under stairs cupboards and a door leads into the spacious kitchen which extends into a breakfast/garden room with bifold doors out to the terrace. There is also a door to an original Victorian porch and side door for the property. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted and is a lovely blend of old and new. Granite worktops provide useful workspace and with wooden cupboards below. A gas Rayburn Royal is complemented by a 5 hob Rangemaster cooker with electric ovens and grill. There is a Belfast sink under the window which looks onto the pretty side garden and there is a space for a large fridge freezer with wall mounted cupboards above and alongside. A large breakfast bar is perfect for a more casual coffee and then there is plenty of space for a dining table and cosy chairs beyond.
A door from here leads to the very large and very useful utility room which houses the boiler and has plenty of space and plumbing for washing machines, fridge/freezer etc and is a fabulous drying and storage place. Off this is a downstairs WC and also a further door to the back garden.
Stairs from the hallway lead up to a half landing which has a lovely double bedroom with feature Victorian fireplace, and which is currently in use as a home office. A bathroom beyond is gloriously light and bright, has recently replaced double glazed windows and benefits from lovely views over the garden and beyond.
Stairs from here lead to the main first floor and the principal bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is a large and striking room with a dual aspect and with a window seat to the side window, with feature fireplace and built in cupboards it is simply but very tastefully decorated. Bedroom 2 is another large double with fireplace, built in cupboard and dual aspect and with nice views over the garden at the back.
Further stairs lead up to the second floor with a very spacious landing with lots of eaves storage which could lend itself to a play area or could provide an extra bathroom and has two further double bedrooms.
At the front of the property is a gate and stone wall which encompasses the property and provides a small front and side garden with mature plants and trees. There is a path around the side to the lovely Victorian porch with second front door and to which there is another gate from the road, and where is also a lovely space for seating. Along this path is a discreetly located coal bunker fabulous for the small Victorian fireplaces.
The rear garden which can be accessed either from the back lane where the parking and garage are, or from the house is part paved with a lovely seating area and the rest is laid to lawn with pretty borders and shrubs. There is a large double garage and also a parking space and also a very handy shed/wendy house with useful extra storage for garden implements.
