HOW TO FIND IT TQ9 5LH. Turn into Plymouth Road at the traffic lights on the Kingsbridge Hill/Plymouth Road junction. Fox House is 100m around the corner on the right. Park in front of the house. 

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 The east wing of an attractive and imposing former vicarage, Fox House is built of stone with a tile hung first floor and a tiled roof. Divided from its neighbour some years ago, it has since been updated and its accommodation on three floors makes for a bright and comfortable family home close to the town centre with a garden and with plenty of parking. From some of the windows at the back of the house are good views to the north with even Haytor visible from the second floor bathroom. Outside, the garden is two levels with a deck terrace, a summerhouse and a lower terrace and garden. In front of the house, a large brick paved parking area has parking for three or four cars, and there's a bicycle store too. Three bedroom houses with gardens and parking near the town centre are hard to find and keenly sought after. Fox House should fit the bill.
