Property description

Tenure: Freehold

- Situated in an elevated position in the village of Kingswear, Bright Water has superb panoramic views sweeping from River Dart, Dartmouth and over to the surrounding Devon countryside.
- This property has been beautifully designed and styled to maximise the glorious views from every window of principal rooms - each a large picture affording light to enter the property but your eye to be drawn out to the stunning river and rural vistas.
- On the entrance level is a large open plan Kitchen/Breakfast Room which opens to a large decked Terrace with glass balustrades and those all-important views.
- There is also a Snug which provides a relaxing space and a Cloakroom on this level too, plus access to the Double Garage.
- A light filled stairway leads down to the spacious Sitting Room with large picture windows looking out over the hills and across Darthaven Marina to the River Dart. The TV is discretely hidden behind a panel and the room benefits from a multi-fuel burner for those cosy nights in.
- Oak doors separate the Sitting Room from a potential Dining Room or Study. However, the current owners use this space as an Art Studio. It benefits from fabulous light coming through the bi-fold doors which open to a Balcony where the views are a source of inspiration.
- On this level there are two double Bedrooms, one with large Ensuite comprising a large walk-in shower, separate bath, floating wash hand basin and low level w.c. The other Bedroom has a good-sized Shower Room next door and both rooms benefit from lovely views.
- A fully fitted Utility Room with airing cupboard, and spaces for washing machine and dryer completes this floor.
- On the Ground floor is the Principal Bedroom with glorious views and an Ensuite Shower Room boasting a large walk-in shower, low level w.c., and floating wash hand basin with cupboards under.
- A guest Bedroom, again with river views, includes an Ensuite Bathroom comprising bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin and low level w.c..
- The Library area has plenty of built-in shelves and views over the river to while away a peaceful afternoon reading or alternatively, to sit in the Sun Room overlooking the Garden and views
- Sliding doors lead out to the full width Patio and Deck with steps leading down to the lower landscaped Garden terraces, edged with specimen planting. A well-designed Patio is sheltered and enjoys far-reaching rural views as well as overlooking the wild meadow Garden. There is ample covered storage for garden implements.
- Bright Water is a light filled spacious home ideal as a permanent home or waterside retreat.  

About the area:
Kingswear lies on the east bank of the River Dart in one of the most beautiful estuaries in the South West. The brightly coloured houses of this picturesque village overlook the Marina and fishing quay whilst the nostalgic sounds of the Dartmouth Steam Railway resonate along the valley during summer months. There is a post office, church, primary school, bistro and two popular inns with restaurants overlooking the river. A short ferry trip across the River Dart enables easy access to the ancient port of Dartmouth with its shops and fine restaurants, and to further afield to explore the Devon countryside and coastline. For the enthusiastic yachtsman, there is Darthaven Marina and the Royal Dart Yacht Club with its full program of sailing events. The glorious unspoilt beaches on National Trust are nearby and the Southwest Coastal path runs through the village enabling a short stroll to enjoy the local scenery.
