Finest on the Dartmouth waterfront

Morocco House offers a rare opportunity to purchase a stunning Grade II listed former merchant’s house understood to date from the mid/late Georgian period. This unique property is situated in a magnificent waterfront position on historic Bayards Cove, Dartmouth.  

The property is beautifully presented throughout and retains a wealth of period features, including decorative ceiling cornices, fireplaces and arch headed sash windows. A full-width ornamental cast iron balcony to the front elevation features cross bars enhanced with ornate ornamental crosses. The property also features an unusual carved timber door case and studded front door. The stylish accommodation is arranged over four floors with stunning River Dart views from all the principal rooms. 

Morocco House also has the advantage of a large garage nearby providing parking for one or two vehicles/boats with further parking available in front of the garage.  

The cobbled quayside at Bayards Cove provided a mooring and anchorage point, active in the early and mid-17th century to visitors including the Pilgrim Fathers’ ships, the Mayflower and the Speedwell.  In recent years the quay has been used as a backdrop for many films and TV programmes and Bayards Fort, an early Tudor artillery fort, was built to defend the harbour entrance.  It was last used for defence during the 2nd World War.

This fascinating property is on the market with a guide price of £1,250,000.  For further information please contact Marchand Petit Dartmouth on 01803 839190, or email:
