Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In one of the most sought after areas in Totnes, overlooking the town, countryside beyond and distant Dartmoor views, is Highfield House. Built in 1825 this late Georgian town villa is beautifully presented with a feeling of quality and luxury throughout, from the Gothic windows to the carefully tended garden. This historic house was one of the first to be built in this area and is only a short walk from the High Street and all the town’s amenities.

A wonderful gracious hallway leads to an inner hall and to a large drawing room with marble fireplace, corniced ceilings and fabulous floor to ceiling windows with views over the garden. Leading from the well equipped kitchen is the orangery, built by the current owners in 2012 and perfect for artists and photographers, with a consistent gentle light.

The curved staircase leads to a very spacious landing and five bedrooms with 2 en-suites, two further shower rooms and a door to the second floor where there is a very flexible space with study, kitchenette and 3 bedrooms. There is also a large cellar divided into 4 rooms.

Solid wooden gates open to a gravel parking area providing ample parking and turning area. The pretty garden which has many attractive mature shrubs and flower borders, has sun all year round and gently slopes away from the house. There are plenty of quiet seating areas from which to enjoy the view and private peace of this lovely offering.

Highfield Villa is a real opportunity to buy one of the great Totnes houses and would make a fabulous family home.
