The Property
Every once in a while I come across a home that optimises the village where it is located. The Coach House is that such property. If you want to live in Kingswear, or be close enough to the Dartmouth festivities without the traffic issues or bustle, then this home is it. It occupies a commanding position over the estuary and enjoys the views across to Dartmouth, the estuary and far out to sea. This home has all the modern conveniences such as double glazing and central heating, combined with the external character that only a former coach house could provide. The downstairs features an impressive sized lounge and a kitchen/family room, both taking in the astonishing views. The first floor sees three double bedrooms, with the master suite enjoying 180-degree views from its picture window. There are two bathrooms, some outside storage space and a large double garage. The gardens are mostly frontage with a terraced area offering development potential, due to its distance from the main home and the proximity of separate vehicular access. This home has a beautiful feel and properties such as this rarely become available, especially within this desirable location.

Entrance Hall
Two shallow steps up from the driveway level brings you to a uPVC doorway and into the home. The entrance hall is open and spacious with a front and rear aspect window offering good natural lighting. There is a recessed study nook, painted timber flooring, stairs up to first bedroom level, doors to:

An astonishing room that features twin front aspect patio doors that offer spectacular views across the estuary to Dartmouth, and out to sea. This room has a light and airy feel, and with a ceiling height of well over nine feet even those patio doors have over lights fitted. This room is mostly stonework, sealed and painted. There is a recessed fireplace with a granite hearth and a cast iron grate within. This fireplace is flanked by twin double panel radiators, both with independent thermostatic controllers. There are recessed display nooks, two with Victorian style relief mouldings within.

Kitchen/Family Room
More fabulous space with a floor to ceiling box bay window set that allows incredible light into the seating and dining area. There is a front aspect patio door that offers a lovely terraced patio, and perfect for alfresco dining opportunities. The views here, again, are exceptional and far reaching. The kitchen side features a range of bespoke units with plenty of work space. The sink is stainless steel with one-and-a-half bowl with a monobloc mixer tap over. The hob is opposite, a four ring halogen, both that and the sink have a ceramic tiled slash area, the floor is ceramic tiled too. The double oven and grill is adjacent to the hob, and is stacked at waist height for ease of use. There is under-counter soace and plumbing for an automatic washing machine and a full size dishwasher. A stable door from the kitchen opens out into a small courtyard area to the rear of the home.

A small inner lobby features a recess for a freestanding fridge freezer, with a cupboard set above it. A door from here opens into a cloakroom.

The dining area comfortably accepts a six to eight seater dining set and is further illuminated by a side aspect obscure glazed window. A large L-shaped single panel radiator has been bespoke fitted and includes an independent thermostatic controller.

Downstairs Cloakroom
Rear aspect obscure glazed window. Close coupled W.C. with an adjacent wash hand basin atop a vanity cupboard unit. The oil fire boiler is also situated in this room, and a factory lagged immersion heater.

First Floor Landing
This stairway and landing area is well illuminated by a large double glazed window unit. There is a range of bespoke fitted cupboards on two walls, both offering great storage solutions. Doors to:

Master Bedroom
Just the most beautiful space with front aspect double glazed windows running the whole length of one wall. The views here are first class with 180-degree sighting up and down the estuary and across to Dartmouth itself. A large single panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath them. There is a side aspect window that currently illuminates a vanity area. There is a range of fully fitted wardrobes offering three sets of double fronted cupboards on one side, and a double wardrobe opposite. There is also a built in bespoke drawer set which creates a dressing area from the main room.

Master En-suite
Rear aspect double glazed window. This en-suite features a mini-bath shower tray with a full plumbed in Mira shower. There is also a close-coupled W.C. with an adjacent pedestal wash hand basin. The splash areas are white ceramic tiled to match the suite, a ladder style heated towel rail is also fitted.

Inner Hall
A doorway isolates this from the first floor landing. Doors to:

Bedroom Two
Front aspect double glazed window, enjoying those lovely views, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath it. A very good sized double room with a natural recess for bedroom furniture.

Bedroom Three
Side aspect double glazed window. Another double room, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is also fitted. Again, there is a wardrobe recess and room for some significant bedroom furniture.

Family Bathroom
Fully tiled in subtle shade ceramics, walls and flooring. There's is a panel bath with a monobloc mixer tap and a showers attachment over. The wash hand basin is atop a small vanity unit that also incorporates a concealed cistern for a close coupled W.C.

The front is mostly driveway access with a patio that runs the full width of the home. That patio area is accessed directly from the lounge and/or the kitchen family room. Across that driveway are granite steps that lead down to a beautiful terraced garden on three levels, all offering tranquillity and beautiful far reaching views. There are two lawned areas and a number of seating spaces that offer a high degree of both privacy and seclusion. The perimeter flower beds offer a wide range of mature evergreens and other floral delights. This area is mostly enclosed by local stone and slate walls, and offers a salubrious setting, perfect for enjoying the estuary activity, or just a place to while away the hours...

A second set of stone steps bring you down to an incredibly private area, split into a vegetable area and a lawned area. This garden backs onto a lane offering vehicular access, thus could be developed as a separate and very private buliding plot (subject to planning consent), as it's not overlooked in any way. It's a great addition to the garden and offers a buffer between the house, garden and estuary.


A cobbled courtyard, covered in granite chippings offers maintenance access to the rear of the home. There is a storage unit, perfect for wood drying, and a second storage area/ workshop that opens into the garage. The oil tank is also located here, with a capacity in excess of 500-gallons.


A slightly oversize metal up an over door offers access to a double garage. There is parking for up to three cars in front of it.
