This 1800s listed home acted as a bank for years before being transformed into a classic maisonette with its own outdoor bar - and it could be yours for £750k.

Built in approximately 1860, The Chambers covers three floors of the former Midland Bank on Castle Street, Totnes, situated over the top of the White Stuff store.

The building was declared Grade II listed about a century after it was built, in 1969, with the listing pointing out some of its noteworthy features, including a Welsh slate roof with moulded stacks, a round-arched lunette, and fluted Doric columns in the front.

The entrance to the maisonette, which sits on the corner of Castle Street and the High Street, opens into an original staircase.

The maisonette spans 2,500 sq ft, with five double bedrooms, a cloakroom, a bathroom, a shower room and an open plan lounge/kitchen with a pantry and utility area.

The lounge looks out directly towards Totnes Castle, with views also available from the enclosed garden with a raised patio, pergola, bar and pizza oven.

Other period features of the town centre home include exposed beams, high ceilings, sash windows and original fireplaces.

The property is being marketed by estate agents Woods Homes, who have it listed at a price of £750k.

Nick Wood of Woods Homes said: “This building used to be a bank, and was listed back in 1969.

“It’s a lot bigger than you would think - 2,500 square feet is larger than the average house.”
