Topsham remains an estuary town of nationwide renown, reflected in its characterful period cottages and houses, perfectly blended with a range of more modern homes. Recently named by The Sunday Times as the best place to live in the South West of England. Its excellent amenities range from a splendid individual-styled parade of shops to, churches, restaurants, several pubs, a school and a bowling and sailing club. The town was listed at the time of Domesday as 'Topeshant' and flourished as an estuary port for nigh on five centuries. Topsham also became world-renowned for ship-building reaching its zenith between 1800 and 1870.
A truly lovely, Grade II listed, three storey period town house located in one of the most prestigious streets in the centre of 'Old Topsham', offered in excellent condition whilst retaining many period features including a beautiful returning staircase. The accommodation which has recently been the subject of some improvements briefly comprises reception hall, sitting room with fireplace, kitchen/dining/garden room opening to the garden, downstairs shower room, three good size double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. French doors open to a delightful, fully enclosed garden with level lawn, garden shed and useful store. To the front of the property is an off-road parking space.
