About this property

A sensationally designed bespoke 3 bedroom property within walking distance of the popular village of Staverton and the River Dart. Offering a surprising amount of space with a large kitchen/diner, spacious living room and 3 double bedrooms benefiting from a private, sunny Mediterranean style garden terrace. EPC rated B.

Melrose is possibly the most unique property of the Riverwood development ( formerly part of the Dartington Estate ) with two staircases, one leading to the private garden terrace and the other throughout the house. Leading into this tardis from the front garden is the spacious entrance hall and enticing kitchen/dining room, the kitchen has an array of units with new and handmade reclaimed furniture making this an original and exciting design with light pouring in from the lightwells. The kitchen further benefits from integrated Neff appliances and an American style fridge/freezer. The living room, which benefits from a British made wood burner is a generous and light space with views to the front garden. An extremely clever feature of this property is the sliding doors which are completely hidden from view but offer the opportunity to instantly separate the living area from the kitchen diner. This clever feature enables the seamless transition from open plan living to the cosy privacy of a separate lounge.

Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms, 2 with en-suite bathrooms and doors opening onto the sun terrace and a family bathroom. There is parking for two/three cars and a bin store to the front of the property with an electrical car charging point.

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