The Property
A characterful cottage tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Totnes high street but only a minutes walk to the convenience of the shops and public transport links. Requiring a scheme of modernisation to include decoration, a new kitchen and bathroom and the garden does need landscaping. A real unpolished gem! The cottage is being sold vacant and with no upward chain.

Entrance Porch
From a three quarter height doorway from Fore Street into an flagstone paved alley way that leads to 12 stone steps, that in turn, lead to the entrance level for cottage number 3. There is a painted timber and glazed covered porch, and a glazed door directly into the lounge.

Front aspect sash cord window looking out over a private garden area. There is a fire surround with a hardwood mantle, a slate hearth and an inset cast grate. This chimney was recently fitted with a new cowl and the current owner says it works very well. There is a double panel radiator fitted too.

Kitchen / Breakfast
Rear aspect sash cord window and a side aspect picture window wth a deep sill. Obviously dated and with a very basic range of base, eye and cupboard units, a stainless steel sink and drainer, a four-burner gas hob and adjacent waist height oven and grill. There is a wall mounted combination boiler that is only two years old, it supplies hot water and heat to the radiators. This is very good space, room for a four-seater breakfast table. It's got character too, with exposed beams and an open tread oak stairway that leads up to the first floor level. Stairs lead down to a bedroom and bathroom level.

First Floor Landing
Good open galleried space with a belfry style side aspect window. There seems to be some history here with some very neat bespoke fitted hardwood eaves cupboards with brass catches, almost reminiscent of a nautical fitment, linen storage hatches are also built in. There are also exposed beams and a room for a study or even a day bed.

More very interesting space featuring vaulted ceilings with twin Velux windows and a belfry style side window. Again, this room has bespoke fitted eaves cupboards with the same wood and brass furniture as the landing. There is also a double panel radiator.

Lower Hallway
Featuring a corner cupboard housing the utility meters. Doors to:

Bedroom One
A very nice size double room with a front aspect sash cord window. There is a double panel radiator fitted with an individual thermostatic controller.

Bedroom Two
A generous single room with a rear aspect sash cord window with a deep sill or window seat. There is a large under-stairs cupboard and a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller.

Like the kitchen, it's basic, functioning and all the necessary pipe work in situ and ready for a refit. Currently there is a panel bath (sans panel) with a mixer tap and shower attachment. There is a close coupled W.C. and a pedestal wash hand basin.

All garden to the front, completely overgrown but in a beautiful cottage garden way. With a little work it would offer you a perfect sanctuary, especially due to it being land locked, all I could hear was wildlife. It's walled on two sides and very private. There is a perimeter pathway that goes down and all the way around the outside of the property for exterior maintenance.

Once on Fore Street, please proceed up the High Street where, below the arch, you will find an interiors shop called Sitting Rooms. To the right hand side of the shop is a wooden door which leads up a short path where Hancock Cottages can be found. Number 3 is quietly tucked away at the furthest end of the cottages.
