Situation - Teignmouth is a real gem on the South Devon coast. With records dating back to 1044, when the town was originally two separate villages, Teignmouth is an historic port on the Teign Estuary. By the 1800s it was becoming fashionable for visitors, and continues to be a popular tourist destination which also includes a working harbour and marina with promenade, pier and sandy beaches, yacht club and is excellent for sailing and water sports. The town caters well for day-to-day needs with a comprehensive range of facilities including a Waitrose supermarket, specialist local shops and community hospital. There is excellent schooling for all ages. Mainline rail service to London Paddington. There is an 18-hole golf course just 2.5 miles
distant and the Dartmoor National Park lies approximately 12 miles away.

Introduction - Dingley Dell provides the rare opportunity to find sanctuary in a woodland setting with stunning sea views yet just a short distance from the popular seaside town of Teignmouth. With utter seclusion and privacy, albeit for the seascape, this unique Alpine-style property is the perfect waterside retreat. The house offers 2,342sq ft of accommodation arranged mostly over two floors with one room on the lower ground floor (potential studio). To take full advantage of the phenomenal location, Dingley Dell provides a generous sun terrace and two balconies. It is set in the heart of sloping woodland of approximately 1.55 acres.

Accommodation - Steps lead up to the wonderful sun terrace providing access into a conservatory with sea views. Internal doors lead through into the kitchen and sitting / dining room (studio lounge). The kitchen has an array of matching base and wall units, electric hob and oven, an integral dishwasher and fridge / freezer. Off the inner hallway is a cloakroom which also houses the boiler and an open study area with a decorative brick arch and a dual aspect. The lounge enjoys a triple aspect with magnificent sea and woodland views, two sets of sliding patio doors onto the sun terrace and a feature wood burner.

The sitting / dining room (or studio lounge) has a large display window absorbing the delightful views and a shower room off
(studio shower room) plus stairs leading down to the lower ground floor. The lower ground floor houses the studio bedroom and a utility area. It is a versatile space that could provide a games room, teenagers den or is ideal for a dependent relative if required. It has its own access out onto the front drive.

On the first floor landing are fitted cupboards and an airing cupboard. The master suite has a dual aspect with sliding doors that lead out onto a balcony which looks out over the woodland and sea beyond. This bedroom also provides fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Bedroom 2 has sea views with a door out onto a side balcony and a wash basin. Bedroom 3 has a rear aspect with a woodland view, wash basin and access onto the side balcony. Bedroom 4 has a rear aspect with woodland views, wash basin and fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom provides a corner bath, wc, bidet, wash basin and shower cubicle.

The Grounds - A long sweeping driveway leads down the house and ample parking. Beneath the house are a covered store area and an
enclosed basement which provides further storage, currently used as a utility.

The impressive setting is mostly mature woodland with a level area to the west which currently has a timber studio and
workshop, both in need of repair. A previous owner carved out a meandering path down to the sea wall, which has now been
absorbed into the woodland. There is a right of access to cross the sea wall and railway line to reach the beach.

Overall the property amounts to about 1.55 acres.

Services - Mains electricity. Mains water. Private drainage. Oil-fired central heating.

Directions - From Exeter proceed on the A38 and bear left onto the A380 over Haldon Hill. Continue on the dual carriageway turning off at the Ware Barton exit signposted Teignmouth. At the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the B3192. Upon reaching Teignmouth follow the sign to the sea front; continue through the town centre and bear left passing the Pavilion. Proceed along the sea front and up past the Lido and over the bridge where the road narrows to a lane called Eastcliff Walk (no through road). Continue along this lane for approximately 460 yards (420m), looking out for green panel fencing (the western boundary of the property) and the gates to Dingley Dell will be found on the right.
