About this property
A beautifully presented elegant ground floor apartment in a substantial converted period house, situated in a wonderful elevated position commanding stunning views of the River Dart with a garden and parking for one car.
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.
This elegant home has a wealth of period features and has been loved and cared for by the current owners, who have created a home with oodles of character and a real warmth throughout.
As you approach the property on Above Town, there is a parking bay for one car from where steps and pathways meander through the beautifully tended front garden up to the apartment. The views are widespread and stunning, out towards the mouth of the river, across to Kingswear and up towards the Higher ferry.
Situated on the ground floor the front door leads into the spacious entrance hall where there is a range of built in storage cupboards and shelving and from where all rooms are accessed. At the rear of the apartment are the three bedrooms, the bathroom and a cloakroom, whilst the principle living rooms are to the front. The kitchen/dining room is a beautifully light room with wonderful views. The dining area situated in the bay window is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the wonderful vista. The sitting room is another room with elegant proportions, and stunning views. There is a superb feature fireplace and surround and the large bay window allows light to flood into the room, there is also a door leading directly out on to the terrace. There is the potential for a home office in the third bedroom.
To the side is a most useful sun room which provides an opportunity for further storage.
Outside there is a delightful wrap around gravelled garden terrace which provides a wonderful area for al fresco dining, or to simply enjoy an early evening drink whilst soaking up the incredible views. The gardens extend down to the parking bay for one car and are full of mature planting and very well kept. There is an exclusive arrangement in place for the home owners to use a neighbouring garage roof as a further seating area.
Please note that this property cannot be holiday let.
