SITUATION & DESCRIPTION
Dittisham is a picturesque Devon village with charming cottages lining the narrow streets. It is one of the most sought after villages in the South Hams and lies on the west bank of the River Dart. It has a medieval church, a popular sailing club and two public houses, one of which is home to the post office/stores and a riverside café. A seasonal passenger ferry service links the village to the port of Dartmouth where there is a good range of galleries, shops, restaurants and excellent marina facilities. The nearby market town of Totnes provides a mainline rail link to London.
Binham Cottage is a beautifully presented detached house with accommodation arranged over three floors. The property is set in delightful gardens with private access to the village green, known as The Ham, which runs alongside the River Dart. Dinghies and small boats can be launched from the beach or from the nearby sailing club.
This wonderfully light and spacious house provides generous space for entertaining, including a 30ft vaulted living room with double Juliet balcony offering stunning river and countryside views. On the ground floor the fully fitted kitchen/dining room has bi-folding glazed doors opening out to the terrace and garden. In all there are six bedrooms, including one on the ground floor, and four bath/shower rooms.
The property can be accessed from The Lane, a narrow lane off Manor Street, which narrows to a footpath beyond the property. A pedestrian gate leads from the garden to The Ham and nearby car park.
