Attractive and well-presented Victorian terraced cottage in a secluded position with a charming garden, good views and a garage.
5 Sunnymead Terrace is a superb terraced cottage, built of traditional stone and brick and enjoying fine south easterly views over the town and countryside. The property has been sensitively improved and maintained with an appreciation for the original character. There are two attractive period fireplaces, antique pine floorboards, built-in cupboards and original doors. The property benefits from a solar panel system and has recently installed double glazing which has good quality wooden sealed units to the traditional sliding sash design. Other comforts include gas central heating and a very pretty cottage style kitchen/dining room with lovely bright outlook. The two first-floor bedrooms are complimented by a good quality attic room which currently houses a double bed and benefits from extensive under eaves storage.
The rear garden is a beautiful feature, sloping and landscaped with climbers, shrubs and flowers. In addition the property benefits from a single garage in a very nearby block.
To conclude; 5 Sunnymead Terrace has the feel of an artisans home. Typical of Totnes, it has character, individuality, and a secluded location. Within a few minutes’ walk towards Sharpham above the River Dart, it still remains very handy for town centre amenities.
5 Sunnymead Terrace occupies a peaceful and secluded position, close to Maudlin Road, which has little through traffic. This very popular part of town is within a short walk of the centre, which offers an interesting range of small shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries and excellent educational provision. Totnes also offers a mainline station to London Paddington, easy access to unspoilt countryside and the beautiful South Devon coastline.
