Beautifully presented apartment in a period house with spectacular uninterrupted westerly views of the River Dart


Kingswear is a popular village that sits on the east bank of the River Dart, attracting sunshine all day. The local amenities offered comprise a village shop selling groceries, papers etc, a post office, a couple of good local pubs, a cafe, primary school and Church.

From the village, you can join the South West Coastal path which takes in some of the most spectacular coastal scenery on offer.

The beautiful town of Dartmouth, on the opposite bank of the Dart and accessible via a year round ferry service, offers a wealth of shops, boutiques, galleries, pubs and restaurants and is home to the Britannia Royal Naval College. The nearby town of Totnes (12 miles) offers a main line rail link to London Paddington


Colonsay, a fine period house built in about 1870, occupies a superb position off Church Hill overlooking the River Dart. The house was beautifully and sympathetically divided into 3 apartments about 10 years ago. Middle Apartment enjoys the best of the magnificent south westerly views across to Bayards Cove and Dartmouth Castle, the breathtaking estuary entrance and the sea beyond.

The accommodation has been beautifully refurbished and thoughtfully re-configured to offer wonderfully light and airy rooms. The rooms all have the high ceilings, often associated with a house of this period, and include a fabulous bespoke kitchen / breakfast room with electric Aga with 5 ring induction hob. Glass panelled doors lead to the drawing room with original wood floor, fireplace with multi-fuel burner and bay window enjoying the wonderful views. There is also a door to the balcony which runs along the front of the house. The master bedroom is double aspect, has feature fireplace and enjoys the views over the gardens both out onto the estuary and down to Bayards Cove. French doors lead to the balcony and there is an en suite shower room from which again, the views are spectacular. Bedroom 2 also has French doors to the balcony. Bedroom 3 overlooks the lovely palm in the courtyard to the rear and the bathroom has a useful cupboard housing space for the washing machine and further storage cupboard.

The property benefits from a GARAGE nearby on Church Hill with power and lighting and electric up and over door. The entrance to the apartment is approached via a gate with steps down to a charming communal area at the back of Colonsay with lock up store rooms, 2 of which are allocated to each apartment. Middle Apartment has a wonderful patio / barbecue area off the kitchen, ideal for al fresco entertaining.
