Wrinklehorn is a splendid architecturally designed Grade II listed villa, occupying one of the most enviable positions overlooking Totnes down to the River Dart yet within easy walking distance of the town and countryside lanes. The property dates back to 1827 and was formerly known as Mount Dart - elevated location above the Dart. The property is Grade II listed with fine quality distinctions and includes cast iron verandas and Chinese style Gothic glazing. The listing itself alludes to a "strong historic setting in substantial grounds on the hillside overlooking the Dart Valley".
The grounds of approximately 0.5 of an acre at Wrinklehorn are truly superb and are unrivalled in this location. There are extensive gardens, vegetable plot and the orchard creating a quiet oasis. The former stone built cottage, previously known as Wrinklehorn Cottage, is currently used as a double garage/workshop.
A most interesting part of the property is the glazed Vinery with hundreds of pieces of rare Crown glass. The property has a glorious ornate veranda wrapped around three sides of the property which overlook the lawn gardens and town with superb views, together with two balconies affording far reaching countryside and town views.
