A highly specified former farmhouse with flexibly arranged accommodation overlooking the River Dart
Waddeton is an exclusive hamlet on the eastern side of the River Dart Estuary between the villages of Galmpton and Stoke Gabriel. The area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and provides some of the most beautiful landscapes running down to the tidal banks of the River Dart Estuary.
Although surrounded by beautiful countryside the property is by no means remote from the amenities of nearby communities. The Torbay conurbation with its extensive, leisure, commercial, retail and seaside facilities is only a few miles away, whilst the marinas, yachting and boating facilities of Kingswear and the River Dart are conveniently close. The area has long been appreciated for the combination of beautiful surroundings, accessibility and opportunities of water based recreation.
Kingswear is the home of the Royal Dart Yacht Club and Agatha Christie used to live at neighbouring Greenway. Dartmouth, at the mouth of the estuary, is not only an historic fishing and seafaring port but also home to the Britannia Royal Naval College.
Access to Waddeton has recently been improved with the opening of the Kingskerswell bypass making a typical car journey time to Exeter and the M5 of under 45 mins. There is a mainline railway station at Totnes (at the head of the Dart Estuary) with the fastest train taking under 3hrs to London Paddington.
Home Farm is a former farmhouse, probably dating back to the 19th Century, that has been lavishly extended and modernised over the last decade. Electrically operated double gates lead into the tarmac drive where there is ample parking and access to the outbuildings and house. The handsome stone house has been extensively modernised to a high specification to include plenty of light through the many tall windows facing the river.
On entering the house one is immediately struck by the style and quality of the finish and specification. An impressive oak staircase rises from the main ground floor reception room with its large stone fireplace and chimney piece. The house is well set up for both formal and informal living with a large entertaining space on the ground floor, opening out to the south and west facing terrace overlooking the gardens and down to the river beyond. Upstairs the main living area includes an open plan kitchen extending to dining and sitting space and on again to a balcony that enjoys the best of the outlook down to the valley.
The main bedroom suite also has a west facing balcony and can be configured to include a dressing room or an additional bedroom if required. The north end of the house has its own entrance, kitchen and staircase and can therefore be used as a separate wing if required.
The specification of the house includes under floor heating, CCTV, air conditioning, high quality bathroom fittings and a "safe room".
The house overlooks well stocked and cared for gardens to the south and west with a terrace running along the house extending to lawns and a small paddock. There is a an enclosed vegetable garden and many ornamental trees and shrubs.
The drive is protected by electrically operated gates, with remote video entry and extends via the tarmaced drive to a gravelled parking and turning space. Beside the parking is a smart timber framed outbuilding providing two garages, a dog kennel and garden storage.
