About this property
Set within the beautiful backdrop of Stoke Gabriel, a stunning contemporary new home built to a high specification with beautiful views of the River Dart.
In fitting with the exterior design of its neighbouring properties, our 5 bedroom home, Gabriel Lodge features stone gables and floor to ceiling height windows throughout. Architecturally the property follows the traditional long barn style of home associated with the rural properties of the South West.
An expansive and spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area is complemented by the bifold aluminium windows that open out into the large rear garden. Although completely self-contained and private, the garden backs onto the parkland of the historic Stoke Gabriel House with its listed folly and meticulously restored ancient stonewalling.
As well as a downstairs double bedroom with ensuite there are a further 4 bedrooms on the first floor of the property, all of which enjoy stunning countryside views across the Devon landscape.
Situated between the bustling towns of Paignton, Totnes and Dartmouth is the rural village of Stoke Gabriel, the location of our Marians Maples homes. The small parish resides on the creek of the River Dart, a 75km river stretching down from the highs of Dartmoor to the sea at Dartmouth.
An 800 year old Yew Tree in the churchyard hints of Stoke Gabriels historic past; an area once known for being at the centre of the Dart Salmon Fishing Industry. Even now the area is cast with an abundance of apple trees, planted as cider orchards to supply the fishermen and farmworkers who used to live and provide for the village.
The fishing culture of Stoke Gabriel lives on, with many families and children still crabbing from the village quay. The Millpool, a non-tidal creek off the river, also gives opportunity for many water-based activities, paddle boarding and kayaking being a common sport seen and enjoyed by many down by the water.
For sailing enthusiasts, there are mooring spots available along the river, as well as the Stoke Gabriel Boat Association which is open to all and hires out its fleet of over 50 boats for its members to further explore the River.
Although well connected to bigger local towns, the village still boasts an abundance of cafes, shops, art galleries and pubs, namely The River Shack down at the village quay, a popular waterside restaurant and cafe.
On leaving the Totnes office of Marchand Petit, take the A385, sign posted Paignton and Torquay and continue along this road out of Totnes until you reach Longcombe Garage on your right hand side. Take a right turn just before the garage and carry on along this road until you drive through the hamlet of Aish. Continue through this hamlet and turn right at Lembury Cross into Aish Road sign post for Stoke Gabriel. Proceed along the lane towards the village of Stoke Gabriel and turn right at the T-junction. Turn right into Flood Street and then into Vicarage Lane. Follow the lane to the far end and Vicarage Close will be found on the right hand side.
