TOTNES Westerly is situated four miles from Totnes and within two miles of the A38 at Buckfast. The unique and charming market town of Totnes sits above the River Dart in the heart of the South Hams. The town is one of Devon's gems, the birthplace of the Transition Town movement in England and nominated in British Airways' HighLife magazine as one of the world's top ten funky towns. Full of colour and character, its atmosphere is cosmopolitan with a West Country flavour and those looking for history, alternative therapies and beautiful countryside will find it in and around Totnes. The town is said to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain. With a twice-a-week market and full of small independent shops, it's well-known for ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. It is the second oldest borough in England, with an ancient Guildhall and Church, a Norman Castle and its North and East Gates. There is a well-regarded community college and a mainline railway station and Dartmoor, the South Hams and many of its fine beaches are within easy reach. 

THE PROPERTY Standing in lovely rural surroundings and with a fine view to the south east across pretty South Hams countryside is Westerly, a detached bungalow 1¾ miles from the A38 and four miles from Totnes. A property which some buyers will want to modernise, it has plenty of space with its three bedrooms and two reception rooms. Westerly has the potential to be a much larger property. It stands on a site of almost half an acre so that there's plenty of room to extend, but even without extending, a vast usable attic and an integral garage both offer scope for further accommodation which could offer opportunities for home & income or 3G living. The bungalow has central heating and double glazing and further land is available on the other side of the garden hedge.
