About this property

A character Grade II listed farmhouse in a tranquil hamlet with mature gardens and orchard. No EPC required.

Dartington is a much sought after and very charming village located on the outskirts of Totnes giving easy access to the local schools, King Edward VI Community College, Rudolph Steiner School and Dartington Primary School. The village also boasts a thatched public house, church, village stores and post office, open air swimming pool, Dartington Hall, petrol station and the Shops at Dartington complex. It is ideally situated for the medieval town of Totnes, the commercial centre for this part of South Devon. The bustling medieval market town has a mainline railway station giving direct connections to London. There is also good access to the A38 Devon Expressway, linking Plymouth and Exeter where it joins the M5. Totnes boasts a market as well as a good selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and inns.

Approached over a shared driveway, this C18th stone built property is located in the historic hamlet of Velwell (linked to Totnes via the Dart Valley Cycleway). Stone flag steps lead into the entrance hall, from here there is a cosy sitting room, with oak parquet flooring and local stone fireplace with wood burner. The traditional farmhouse style kitchen has a range cooker and door to the garden. The property boasts exposed beams, original doors throughout. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms spread over 2 floors, the majority of bedrooms have window seats overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. The approximately 1 acre of gardens are to the southwest of the house and comprise sweeping lawns, mature orchard, vegetable plot and stream.
