Hillside Jubilee Road, Totnes, Devon

Hillside forms the middle section of a grand Victorian villa located on what many feel is the best road in Totnes. Now a lovely family home, it has bright spacious south facing rooms with high ceilings and many period features.

The house is hidden from the road by the walled garden with an entrance gate off Jubilee Road. Approached through the pretty garden one enters into the small entrance hall useful for coats and boots then through an arch to the kitchen/breakfast room. With high ceilings this lovely room overlooks the garden from the kitchen, which is fitted with wooden base units and worktops. There is an Electrolux double oven with integrated Smeg gas hob with extractor hood over, space for a fridge/freezer and washing machine. A dresser has been built into the chimney space and there is a plenty of room for a large dining table and entertaining.

From here there is a door to the inner hallway with a striking staircase with lovely wooden railings. Under the stairs is a WC and straight ahead leads into the stunning Reception room with full height bay widows with casement doors leading out to the paved front garden. This lovely south facing room has a cast iron fireplace, suitable for wood and coal burning and striking marble mantlepiece. With a picture rail and original stripped floors, it retains much charm.

Rising to the first-floor landing there is a useful storage cupboard and to the right the main bedroom. This lovely large south facing room has a characterful cast iron fireplace and a large bay window which offers views over the front garden and to the hills beyond. There are fitted wardrobes along one wall.

The family bathroom is large and benefits from views over the back garden. It is fitted with a bath with Triton shower over and glass shower screen. There are built in cupboards either side of the pretty fireplace one of which houses the Baxi boiler.

Stairs rise to second floor landing, which has a door directly ahead to a shower room with WC and walk in shower. To the right overlooking the front garden is the second double bedroom which is dual aspect and has an original cast iron fire surround, stripped floorboards and views over front garden. Bedroom 3 is at the back of the property, it is another double and also has a cast iron fireplace with lovely views over the rear garden and far reaching views of Dartmoor.

The south facing front garden is primarily ornamental being fully paved and with a step down to a small pond, it is the perfect sun trap in which to relax.

The rear garden approached off Jubilee Road through a wooden pedestrian gate alongside the garage (which has power and light), has a path which runs along one side towards the house. The rest is laid to lawn and has a number of fruit trees including an eating apple and pear, it is perfectly situated to benefit from the afternoon and evening sun with views over Totnes and beyond. From here steps descend to a further patio area, perfect for alfresco dining, with borders, raised beds and an outdoor tap.

Hillside is situated on the edge of Totnes Town centre on the tree lined Jubilee Road and is within walking distance of the town. Totnes is a medieval market town which is surrounded by the beautiful rolling countryside of the South Hams.
