Brook House is a pretty stone built house situated on the edge of The Ham in Dittisham, in the heart of the village. The Ham is a wonderful riverside park which also offers a public slipway into the River Dart, and this is a short level access from the driveway at Brook House.

The house, which was built in the early eighties, offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. The reverse level living takes full advantage of the wonderful views on offer. Stone steps rise from the terrace to the front door which in turn opens into an entrance hall with guest cloakroom and a galleried landing beyond. There are two lovely receptions
rooms, including a dining room and a sitting room and a bright kitchen/breakfast room on this level.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of units, double oven, hob and dishwasher and offers gorgeous views of the River Dart. The sitting room is a double length reception room, again with wonderful views, a wood burning stove set in a stone inglenook fireplace and double doors leading to a decked balcony.

Stairs descend from the galleried landing to the lower ground floor which comprises three large double bedrooms, including the principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom and double doors opening on to the adjoining terrace. In addition, there is a family bathroom, utility room and boiler room with external door.

Outside is possibly the jewel in the crown for this lovely home. The grounds are approached through a five-bar gate off Ham Lane and the drive then extends through the meadow beyond the natural spring fed pond. There is a wonderful selection of trees and mature shrubs and at the top, ample parking for cars and boats. A gate provides access across the path and into Brook House.

NB. There is an orchard of about 1/3 acre with double store/garage, available by separate negotiation.

Dittisham is a quintessential 'chocolate box' village, with a wonderful mix of cottages and thatched houses, quaint lanes and a large village green known as The Ham, which is situated on the bank of The River Dart. Dittisham remains one of the most sought-after villages in the South Hams, not just because of its charm, but because it is a vibrant community with two village pubs, post office/general store, a waterside cafe and a popular sailing club. Dartmouth is about 6 miles distant in the car or about 20 minutes down river, and offers an array of shops, boutiques, pubs and restaurants, as well as a cinema, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, three supermarkets, a health centre and a good selection of schools..
Totnes is about 8 miles distant and offers a mainline rail link to London Paddington with a journey time of about 2 hours and 40 minutes. The A38, which in turn leads to the M5, is about 15 miles distant.

Dartmouth 6 miles, Totnes (with main line rail link to London) 8 miles Blackpool Sands 7 miles (All distances and times are approximate)..
