A glorious characterful converted coach house with courtyard and garden. Bell Orchard is perfectly located in an exclusive, quiet, private road considered to be one of the best addresses in Totnes.
Approached through full height wooden gates it is a real oasis and benefits from a wonderful feeling of space.
On the ground floor is a large double aspect living room with double French windows onto the courtyard. The ceiling heights are very generous and there is a lovely wood burner in the corner for those cosy winter evenings. The kitchen is the real heart of the house and perfect for entertaining. Fitted with French windows opening out onto the courtyard which give a sense of drawing the outside in and vice versa. With wonderfully high ceilings it affords a lovely feeling of space, and has fully fitted units along two sides, an island unit and still plenty of space for a dining table.
There is a downstairs WC off the hallway and stairs lead to the first floor. The master bedroom with vaulted ceilings has a glazed door onto a sun deck leading onto the garden area perfect for early morning coffee. There are 2 further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a bath and separate shower.
The garden is a real feature of the property, and has been cleverly and carefully designed to divide into various different areas and provides an area of absolute tranquility. The glorious cobbled courtyard has an almost Mediterranean feel with numerous pots carefully laid out amidst benches and a lovely area for al fresco dining. There are steps up to a herb garden with small water feature, a lawned area, together with greenhouse, raised beds, and another seating area perfectly located to benefit from the evening sun. In addition there is also a separate single storey annex which is perfect for a home office or hobby room, and very usefully has its own pedestrian access off Bourton Road.
