The property stands just above the historic East Gate House and is within easy distance of all the amenities and facilities of this Medieval Town. 8 High Street is an imposing building elevated from the pavement with steps leading off the pavement onto a courtyard and to a side entrance door which would provide separate access to the upper floors and a main entrance door off the pavement into the reception of the ground floor accommodation. Totnes has a mainline railway station with access to the River Dart within the town and an easy drive away from the South Hams coastlines and the maritime towns of Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Torbay and Newton Abbot are also within a short car journey.
The property is constructed in traditional stone rendered under a slated roof. 8 High Street whilst having undergone some works of repair and improvement is in need of refurbishment and provides for a spacious ground floor accommodation suited to office, shop or service business with a separate access and stairs giving an approach to the upper floor living accommodation. The property enjoys a return frontage to an elevated cobbled courtyard.
