About this property

One of four newly converted homes forming part of this exclusive electric gated development on the banks of the River Dart and Staverton Nature reserve, this property has 4 double bedrooms, a stunning kitchen/diner with bespoke handmade units and spacious living room. It benefits from its own driveway, with space for 2/3 vehicle, private gardens and annexe. EPC Rated B.

Birch House is arguably the most distinctive property on this exclusive gated development Riverwood, formerly part of the Dartington Estate offering ample, contemporary accommodation. This property has a beautiful private, gated sweeping sleeper built driveway providing access to the garden and the unexpected self-contained studio/annexe, which is perfectly suited to someone looking to work from home with own separate entrance, kitchen and bathroom.

The ground floor flows well with a real mix of new and old, entering via a porch to a spacious entrance hall with cloakroom leading to a fabulous kitchen/diner and spacious sitting room with a British built wood burner. On the other 2 floors the accommodation is surprisingly large with 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite, a family bathroom and utility area. With bespoke handmade kitchens, including top of the range Neff kitchen appliances, to Zinc roofs, top of the range flooring, aluminium Kawneer double glazed sliding doors and windows, bespoke staircase and individually designed doors, this really is anything from ordinary.

The popular village of Staverton is located about two miles to the north of Dartington and about 3 miles from Totnes, the commercial centre for this part of Devon. Access to the A38 Devon Expressway is easy, connecting Plymouth and Exeter where it links with the M5. At Totnes there is the mainline railway station with direct links to London. The village lies on the banks of the River Dart and boasts a strong community based around a lovely church and an award winning country pub. The charming South Devon Steam Railway, built in 1872, runs through the valley alongside the River Dart between Totnes and Buckfastleigh.

Locally the development benefits from proximity to the award winning Riverford Organic Farm shop, The Shops at Dartington, Staverton Bridge Nursery, South Devon Steiner School and regular Farmers Market in nearby Totnes.
