Full description

74 East Street is located towards the upper end of East Street, one of the oldest roads within the historic South Dartmoor town of Ashburton. The town is noted for its fine period buildings many of which are of architectural and historical note. There are excellent local shops and amenities including post office, pharmacy, two butchers, bakers, delicatessen, health centre and cafes/restaurants, all of which are within convenient walking distance of the property. Local educational facilities within the town include primary and secondary schools along with Sands independent.

Ashburton is a centre for arts and crafts and a new community arts space has recently been acquired with the community-led purchase of the former Methodist church in West Street. The town lies just off the A38 Devon expressway which links the two Devon cities of Plymouth and Exeter where the road joins the M5 motorway. The market town of Newton Abbot lies about 8 miles to the south and has a mainline railway station, as does the town of Totnes. Ashburton is located within the southern boundary of Dartmoor National Park and the rugged landscape of the open moor is just a few minutes drive away.

This handsome Georgian town house is arranged over three floors and contains numerous character features including reclaimed pine woodblock flooring, sash windows, a central turned staircase and several attractive fireplaces. There are modern kitchen and bathroom fittings along with full gas fired central heating. All the rooms are attractively proportioned.

Immediately adjoining the rear of the house is gated parking for two cars - an extremely rare find for an Ashburton town house. Beyond the parking area lies a long walled garden with sunny southerly aspect. The garden is attractively divided into several distinct areas and is planted with many specimen shrubs and has lawns and a productive vegetable growing space.

From the centre of Ashburton, proceed up East Street and number 74 will be found on the right hand side, by the turning to Hares Lane.
