Baring Cottages, Totnes, Devon

Quietly and yet centrally located in the heart of Bridgetown, being a level walk across the bridge from Totnes, this cottage is a hidden gem. Having been sensitively modernized to retain its charm and character this property would make a glorious home for someone wishing to have the convenience of the town yet in a rural setting.

The property is reached through a bespoke timber gate from Weston Road with a path leading to the front door with wooden porch over. The open plan sitting room is large, light and spacious with stripped painted wooden floors, generous ceiling heights and has windows overlooking the rear courtyard as well as to the front gardens. As a focal point there is a Morso wood burning stove and fitted shelving to either side of the fireplace a very spacious and yet cosy room which has been tastefully decorated by the current owners. There is also an understairs cupboard.

A tiled floor leads through to the kitchen area with a handmade range of floor units with Kenwood range with 2 electric ovens and 5 gas hobs. There is a stainless steel sink under a window onto the courtyard, an integrated dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine.
A glazed door leads into a rear lobby area with plenty of space for coats and boots, there is also a backdoor out to the rear courtyard. From here is a door into the luxury shower room with a recently installed large walk-in tiled shower with glass surround, WC and nicely painted walls.

From the main room stairs lead up to the first floor landing where there are two lovely characterful double bedrooms, with original exposed floorboards and partially exposed A frame ceilings in each. The master bedroom has a former fireplace with slate hearth and a dual aspect, Bedroom 2 also has a former fireplace with shelving to one side, and a wardrobe with shelves above to the other plus a view over the back of the property.

The gardens are a huge feature of the property and have been cleverly divided up to provide different seating and lawned areas. To the back of the property off a shared pathway to the other cottages is a small courtyard which is east facing and bathed in the sun in the mornings. The front gardens are a suntrap in the evening and there is a lovely decked area outside the front door, with shed and wood store. Then there is a privet enclosed lawn, and leading on from this a vegetable and wild flower area with small pond. With a number of mature trees and bushes including bay, rosemary, raspberries, blackcurrants, gooseberries, cherry and magnificent magnolia this is a lovely natural haven in the centre of town.

Last and most definitely not least of all, at the bottom of the garden is the beautifully crafted, fully sound proofed and insulated Life Space Cabin which would be a perfect home office or further living space, and which has full planning permission and currently provides a glorious bolt hole.
