The ground floor accommodation comprises a spacious entrance hall with useful storage cupboard and stairs up to the first floor landing, a kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke oak units, granite worktops, a central island, space for an Aga, flagstone tiled flooring, and patio doors out to the decking. Off the kitchen is the sun room, with vaulted ceiling, and giving access to the utility room. Also located on the ground floor are the three double bedrooms. The master bedroom enjoys access to the decking via patio doors, as well as a useful dressing room and a contemporary en suite bathroom with “his and hers” sinks and a freestanding bath. Bedroom two also benefits from access to the decking and an en suite shower room. The third double bedroom is located next to the family bathroom.
The first floor accommodation comprises a large landing area, currently used as a dining area and a separate sitting area, both enjoying the lovely countryside views over the River Dart. There are also several points of access to the eaves space which provides useful storage. From here the main sitting room is accessed which also enjoys the lovely water and countryside views. Being dual-aspect, it benefits from a high degree of natural light, as well as vaulted ceilings with exposed timber beams and a door out onto the balcony – providing a great place to relax and take in the secluded setting.
Outside – There is ample parking for several vehicles as well as a garage with a useful studio room above, suitable for a variety of uses. There is also a useful workshop which could provide extra storage.
To the rear of the property is a large area of decking which enjoys the afternoon and evening

Dartmouth is one of the most popular and picturesque tourist destinations in Devon, as it’s not only close to the sea, but it’s also situated on the River Dart. Its location on the river means it has historical importance and was the former home of the Royal Navy. It was also the sailing point for the Crusades in the 12th century.
Now a popular tourist destination set on the banks of the River Dart – with a tidal river running inland as far as Totnes and beyond. It lies in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and South Hams District and has a small resident population of about 5,500 inhabitants.
Dartmouth has a busy town centre with many attractions for tourists, including its shops, restaurants and galleries. Dartmouth is the location of many local events, such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta. There are a number of lovely beaches in the South Hams and excellent golf courses at Dartmouth and Churston.
