A wealth of character
Close to town
Large stone store
Sitting Room with wood burner
Grade II Listed
Forming half of the original Devon Longhouse and believed to date back to 1640, this cottage is delightfully tucked away next to the town park. Park Terrace lies within 'Bartows Causeway' at the end of Castle Street. The name 'Bartows Causeway' is derived from Mayor Bartow who is once believed to have resided at the property when it was the Devon Longhouse. Prior to Mayor Bartows ownership, the property is also understood to have been the 'home farm' to the Castle. This cottage certainly has some history and with the current owner having been in residence for the last 43 years; this is certainly testament to the fact that it is a wonderful place to be living.
The cottage is set back from the road with a pretty front garden through which a path leads to a gated alley that gives access to main entrance at the side of the house. The character is immediately apparent as you step into the entrance hall, a curved wall believed to have formed part of the original staircase. The sitting room is a lovely space with two sash windows drawing in plenty of light and the wood burning stove in the fireplace promising warmth in the colder months. The old wooden doors add to the character.
The kitchen offers plenty of space and whilst quite simple, free standing units offer plenty of storage and working surface space. A rear hall gives access to the stairs and a door leads out to the rear garden.
On the first floor are three bedrooms, the largest of which lies to the front of the cottage and is currently being used as a study. There is also a bathroom, the bath having an electric shower over it.
The rear garden is a real treat! You simply would not realise that you are so close to the centre of the town. There is a huge variety of flowering plants and shrubs and with a meandering brick path and fish pond to add to the appeal of the garden, this is certainly a most pleasant space to while away summer afternoons. To one side of the garden is a large stone store with power and light connected.
Please see the floor plan for the dimensions. The internal photos have been taken with a wide angle lens to show more of the rooms.
From the Northern exit of the market car park, proceed up Castle Street (the one with the leat running down the middle) and continue straight ahead towards the park. The property will be seen near the end on the right.
Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage.
Full of character and with quite a history and tucked away in such a quiet location but close to town.
