Brief Details

Location: Character cottage behind Totnes Fore Street

2 Hancocks Cottage is a character cottage tucked away off Fore Street with plenty of charm and original features including 10-inch floorboards, Oak waney-edge window cills and sash windows. The property also benefits from a wood clad garden annexe with kitchenette and small bathroom with a Japanese sit-bath which can be used as ancillary accommodation.
The well laid out accommodation is arranged over two floors with the ground floor comprising two bedrooms and the family bathroom and the first floor, the lounge and kitchen. A tiled porch opens into the hallway which, together with the two bedrooms, has engineered oak flooring. Bedroom one, a South facing room has a waney-edge oak window ledge while bedroom two has a similar oak window ledge and the benefit of built in under stairs storage with hanging rail. The bathroom is fitted with suite comprising panelled bath, wash hand basin and low level WC which has been recently re-tiled with travertine marble. On the first floor the South facing lounge enjoys views over the garden and towards the hills. The kitchen has farmhouse style freestanding units with stainless steel sink and drainer, space for gas cooker, space for fridge freezer and space and plumbing for washing machine. There is a double glazed sash window, built in cupboard and space for dining table and chairs.
Outside of the property the Annexe in the garden, built by the current owner in 2009, has an open plan living room with a woodburner, kitchenette and small bathroom with shower, toilet and Japanese sit bath. It has been built entirely using eco-materials and is insulated to virtually Passivhaus standards with 8 inches of insulation in the walls, double glazed patio doors and a triple glazed window. It is a healthy place to live with breathable walls, EMF-blocking paint on two walls, a woodburner and 7kg of rose quartz crystals buried in traditional clay plaster. Behind the annexe is a private garden, which is south facing and a suntrap.
There is also outside space between the house and the annexe which is similarly South facing with raised beds and space for seating and socialising.

Planning permission has been granted for a bridge from the living room to the garden, along with permission to convert the loft space into a further bedroom with shower room, and install French windows to the ground floor front bedroom.

2 Hancocks Cottages is freehold and is connected to all mains services with a newly installed gas central heating system.
