1 Belmont Terrace is an extremely appealing and spacious end terraced family house, typical of the Edwardian period with bay windows, panel doors, picture rails, original waxed pine floorboards and elegant fireplaces in almost every room. The four bedroomed accommodation is bright, generously proportioned and benefits from gas central heating. Outside are good-sized mature front and rear gardens and an additional area of productive kitchen garden.
To conclude: 1 Belmont Terrace is a superb example of its type. A gracious Edwardian villa with beautiful large lofty rooms, situated within a short walk of extensive village amenities.
1 Belmont Terrace occupies a delightful position on the fringes of South Brent, and the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. This is excellent walking and riding country, and is also in close proximity to fantastic coastal scenery and beaches. South Brent has a good range of shops, a Health Centre, dentist, churches and pubs. There is a thriving pre-school and primary school, with a choice of secondary schooling in nearby Totnes, Ivybridge or Ashburton. A busy community centre with its own library also provides a focus for a plethora of clubs and social events, along with a recreation ground and sports pavilion.
The village benefits from easy access to a mainline station at Totnes and to the A38 Devon Expressway allowing quick travel times to both Exeter and Plymouth.
