HOW TO FIND IT From Fore Street in Totnes, continue up the hill into High Street and through The Narrows. At the junction with Plymouth Road, go straight ahead into Cistern Street/The Rotherfold and Waterloo Place's entrance is on the right. 

TOTNES 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. 

WATERLOO PLACE A real gem, this Grade II listed house is situated right in the heart of Totnes with its own drive off Cistern Street and The Rotherfold. The house is detached, and has three bedrooms, parking and a private walled garden. Since buying it two years ago, the owners have carried out a programme of improvements and modernisation and an extension at the back makes effective use of glass and provides a third reception room and a shower room. The listing tells us that it was used as an isolation hospital during the 1840s cholera epidemic and describes it as an early 19th century villa. The house is called Waterloo Place, which suggests that it might date from 1815. Behind it is a delightful private walled garden with a splendid and prolific walnut tree. Waterloo Place is an ideal family or retirement home which will suit buyers looking for a house tucked away in the town centre with a garden and parking.
