|Situation and Description|| The lovely estuary town of Dartmouth is well known for its narrow streets and Victorian architecture, but it is indeed rare to find a substantial Period residence that has both a courtyard garden and a large garage within easy walking distance of all town centre amenities together with enjoying estuary views from its water front location.|
|.|| 'Castle View House' was built in 1913 by the present owners great grandfather, a builder of repute in the late 19th Century, for his own family occupation. This handsome property has stayed in the same family ever since and this is the first time it has ever come to the market. During this period it was at one time home to the late Admiral Sir William Pillar who was the third sea lord to the Admiralty and lieutenant governor of Jersey for some five years.|
|.|| Although the spacious accommodation has been divided to create two self contained apartments the house still retains much period charm and character having panelled doors, picture rails, high moulded skirting boards together with Victorian mouldings and coving to the high ceilings. There are some stained glass leaded lights and panels. A number of the rooms still have their original sash windows fitted whilst the bay windows at the front of the house are now Upvc double glazed. For a number of years the present owners have successfully holiday let either one or both of the apartments through Dartmouth Holiday Homes, see their website www.dartmouthuk.com.|
