61 East Street dates from the early nineteenth century, according to the English Heritage listing register, and offers family sized living space arranged over three floors plus large attic.

The house retains some original period features but would benefit form some general refurbishment. The living room is positioned on the first floor and is a particularly well proportioned room with a pleasant outlook between the buildings on the opposite side of the road to green hills beyond.

The garden is larger than most in East Street and is divided into three distinct mostly walled areas with plenty of privacy and a sunny aspect at the furthermost part. It contains plenty of shrubs and trees and is more than enough space to keep the keenest of gardeners entertained.

East Street contains some of the town's most architecturally interesting properties on offer in Ashburton and the excellent local shops and amenities are just a few hundred yards away.

The town lies on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park with the wide open spaces of the moor within a few minutes drive. The A38 can be accessed at Linhay and provides quick, easy communications with Plymouth, Exeter and the national motorway network beyond.

The nearby towns of Totnes and Ashburton are both around 20 minutes by car and have busy shopping centres and main line railway stations with links to London Paddington.

From our offices in the centre of Ashburton proceed up East Street for a couple of hundred yards and 61 will be found on the left shortly before the turning to Roborough Lane.
