The Property
An amazing Grade II listed two-bedroom cottage with an undeveloped self contained barn within the south facing garden. This characterful home features reversed accommodation with bedrooms on both the ground and first floor levels. The living accommodation is situated at garden level and opens out, via bi-fold doors, into a very private and secluded cottage style garden. That top floor gives you a generous size lounge with attractive vaulted ceilings and a kitchen dining space that offers great indoor/outdoor space. The kitchen, although somewhat rustic, has integrated appliances including a dishwasher, oven and hob, and a stacked fridge and freezer set. There's lots of originality here, and due to the somewhat restrictive staircase, it's not for everyone. What it does offer though, is a very nicely located home, close to the town centre and brimming with character. The icing on the cake is the potential income from the partially developed self-contained barn in the garden. Finally, and somewhat unusual for Dartmouth, is an allocated annexed covered parking space conveyed with this property.
