Property Description

Additional Information

This is another of those large, Georgian fronted homes that one often walks past thinking, "I wonder who lived there, or I could live in a house like that". Well, now you have the superb opportunity to own this lovely home - a real part of Great Torrington’s history. Stepping out of the front door to the left is the town square – just a few paces in fact. Turn right, on the other hand and a short stroll see you at the start of the 365 acre commons - with stunning elevated views across the Torridge Valley. This is one of the main reasons the town was voted the healthiest place to live in England a little while ago. There is some work to be done at some point as it is an old place – but it is very comfortable and well presented. The usual maintenance associated with a home of this age and some might like to update the kitchen fittings. I think the bathrooms are of the period, so will not date - but this is a matter of taste.

This large, family home known as "Gareth House" is a hidden gem in plain sight and a must view. It also gives you the opportunity to put your own stamp on it with so many rooms and offers a fantastic degree of flexibility too. Packed full of character features you can get a real sense of life in a bygone era. There are two lovely sized reception rooms as well as a third reception room/workshop, cloaks and utility room – as well as the kitchen/breakfast room, to the ground floor. The third reception room is not one to overlook as this could be an excellent place of work for someone as well as another sitting area. Put in a staircase (with the necessary permissions) and the ground and first floor above it could be self-contained. That’s one idea anyway. Physiotherapy, Aromatherapy, Chiropractor, Artist, Photographer – the list is endless for home working.

The master bedroom is a fantastic space (huge), complete with a feature fireplace. The landing is massive too and the stained glass gives it status of more than just a corridor. It is the light space that connects the home. The second bedroom has the added benefit of a dressing room and ensuite bathroom and could serve as a type of granny flat, assuming my first idea of making two storey isn’t for you. It has direct access to the garden, so really could be a nice space of its own – for a family member or guests. To add to the versatility, there is a separate family bathroom and w.c. that also lead from the main landing as well as three further, large bedrooms and storage cupboards.

Outside is a raised and enclosed rear garden. A wonderful space to relax. A true haven in the centre of town. There are steps from the back of the house and at the top – well stocked beds, a good lawn, walled boundaries and at the top, the current owners keep chickens. The good life, but in the centre of everything. It has that mature feeling like you have been there before. It is, well, welcoming. Parking is a premium in Torrington but Gareth House has that aspect covered to. It boasts its very own garage a very short walk away. Opposite, there is parking on the street for dropping off items. This is unrestricted after 5pm, but is not guaranteed always. This is a great opportunity in an exclusive location. Book as soon as you are able.


From our offices in Torrington, leaving on foot proceed round from Fore Street into South Street, Take the next turning of the left into Castle Street. Continue along the street where Gareth House can be found on your right hand side.
