HOW TO FIND IT At the Eastgate arch, turn left off Fore Street into South Street, where Eastgate Studio 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. 

THE PROPERTY This is a house which must have plenty of history attached to it. Eastgate Studio is listed Grade II* for group value along with 1 High Street and Eastgate House, formerly Totnes's principal inn, The King's Arms. In 1642 it was renamed the King's head and in 1762 The Angel Inn. The Angel Inn, according to the listing, had 'four parlours, a large dining room that extended across the street, fifteen lodging rooms, two kitchens, a coach house and stabling for upwards of forty horses. In 1824 a ballroom was built at the rear'. Whether what is now Eastgate Studio was or is on the site of stables, a kitchen or a ballroom is unclear, but the front face of the building forms the 'battered base of the mediaeval town wall' and must be very old indeed.

Today, Eastgate Studio is a sizeable property with 1,350 square feet of living space plus further room in a converted attic. On the ground floor are a large sitting room and a kitchen/dining room with a big but sealed off fireplace. There are two bedrooms upstairs - one has its own shower room and the other its own bath room and a staircase to a converted attic room. The house is situated right in the town centre in favoured South Street and just yards from Fore Street and High Street.
