About this property

A unique period property in the very heart of the town, currently arranged as successful holiday accommodation with a ground floor apartment and three en-suite letting rooms.

Dartmouth is a beautiful waterside town, particularly well known as a sailing centre with excellent facilities for yachtsmen and its famous annual Royal Regatta. The town provides a good range of shops, restaurants and galleries and is surrounded by stunning countryside and a short drive from some of the most beautiful beaches in the area. There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach and railway links to London, Paddington, can be made locally at Totnes, about 13 miles to the north. Access to the A38 Devon Expressway at Buckfastleigh is about 19 miles away.

A pretty detached period property occupying a set back elevated and private position in the very heart of the town, close to shops, boutiques, restaurants and River Dart, with views across the town.

The current layout of St Elmo cottage is such that it is run as a successful holiday letting unit comprising of a two bedroom ground floor apartment and three independent en-suite letting bedrooms. For those looking for a lifestyle change this offers an excellent opportunity for town centre living with the benefit of additional rental income from three en-suite letting rooms, each with their own separate access. Equally, subject to the necessary adaptations and planning this could be returned to a spacious single dwelling.

On the ground floor is an open plan living space with kitchen, sitting area, dining area, two bedrooms and a shower room. Outside is a plumbed store room which can be accessed from the living space. The first floor is approached via an external spiral staircase up to the first floor courtyard with access to the three independently accessed en-suite letting rooms, one of which has a private balcony and with a shared balcony for the remaining two rooms. The property is approached over a pretty front paved courtyard.

The property is finished to a good standard throughout.

From the Dartmouth office turn right in to Fairfax Place and continue past the boat float, taking the left hand turning in to Duke Street. Take the second on the left in to Lake Street and the steps to the property are directly ahead.

Totnes 13 miles, Kingsbridge 15 miles, A38 Devon Expressway 19 miles. All mileages are approximate.
