SITUATION

The Wick is situated in an elevated position, off a quite road on the edge of Totnes and is only a short walk from the town centre and the banks of the River Dart. Totnes is a bustling Elizabethan market town full of interest with a wide range of good local schools, shopping facilities and recreational pursuits including indoor swimming pool and boating opportunities on the River Dart. The A38 Devon expressway is approximately 6 miles away, allowing speedy access to the cites of Exeter and Plymouth and the country beyond. Main line rail links to London Paddington are also located in Totnes.

DESCRIPTION

The Wick is a substantial detached, Grade II Listed property, thought to be built around 1750 with much sought after Georgian architecture. The house is located on the edge of the popular town of Totnes, with accommodation extending to approximately 2,600sqft and full of much sought after original period features. The property presents exceptionally well and with the addition of the separate one bedroom annex, a holiday let income or additional accommodation for family relatives, is immediately ready to be used.

ACCOMMODATION

From the larger off-road parking space, a glazed door leads into the glazed entrance vestibule with door straight through to the rear garden, door to utility room/WC. Stone steps lead down to the large, splendid open plan kitchen and sitting room with an oak floor to the kitchen area with a range of base and eye-level kitchen units incorporating two single Bosch electric ovens with a Bosch hob and Neff extractor over. The sitting and dining room areas are carpeted with a working woodburning stove, sash windows with shutters and door out onto the east facing patio. There is a door to the parking area to the side of the house, mainly occupied by The Rock, which is the self-contained holiday annex.

Stairs rise to the first floor, where there are three double bedrooms, two of which have the most stunning views over Totnes town and beyond. The main double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower over and a large walk-in cupboard/dressing room. The stairs continue to the second floor where there are a further two double bedrooms and, as you would expect, the most stunning views of Totnes Castle, the church and to the hills beyond the town. Subject to consent, the vendors had planned to create an en suite shower room on this level.

From the patio, a flight of steps lead down to the basement area, which is divided into two rooms, the first with the original copper intact, which was, of course, once used for washing clothes and to the rear of the second room is the gas-fired boiler for the main house.

THE ROCK

The Rock is a detached contemporary and architect-designed self-contained annex under a zinc roof with substantial glazed windows providing exceptional light to flood into the property. With its own entrance door leading into the fully fitted kitchen with door to a cupboard which houses the gas-fired boiler. Stairs up to the sitting room/dining room, which has a Juliet balcony, facing east, providing good views over the town and to the south over the walled garden. Stairs down to the ground floor, passing superb built-in storage units, to the double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. A door leads to a private courtyard area which is perfect for holiday let guests to enjoy the outdoors.

GARDEN

The property benefits from a very private walled garden with an upper level of stone terrace with steps down to a lower level area of garden surrounded by mature plants and a tall hedge. There is a wisteria growing over the east-facing part of the property.
