Stunning contemporary home with sublime estuary views. Open plan living/entertaining space with wrap around balconies. 4 double bedrooms and annex. Gardens, large parking area, garage.


Kingswear sits on the sunny, east bank of the River Dart at the entrance of the Dart Estuary in The South Hams. The village, which lies in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers two pubs, a village shop that sells everyday necessities, a post office, a church and The Royal Dart Yacht Club.

Across the river and accessible via ferry is the beautiful town of Dartmouth, home to the Britannia Royal Naval College and a wealth of shops, boutiques, galleries, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and a cinema. The River Dart's deep-water port attracts sailing vessels from all over the world and is considered to be one of the prettiest in Europe. For yachtsmen, Kingswear is at the centre of one of the finest cruising grounds in the UK and there are three well known marinas close by with first class facilities for sailing and motor yacht owners alike.

There are sandy beaches at Torbay and all along the South Hams coastline together with several excellent golf courses. The nearby major town of Totnes offers main line rail links to London. The A38 (19 miles) provides access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter, the M5 and Exeter International Airport.


Above Creek has been sumptuously renovated by the current owners resulting in a stunning example of contemporary flair and design. The accommodation arranged over four floors, focuses on the superb views over Waterhead Creek, the Dart Estuary and Dartmouth. The finish and layout creates a feeling of luxury throughout each of the spacious rooms.

The ground floor is open plan with an impressive vaulted entrance hallway and galleried staircase with steel and glass balustrades. The sleek, modern kitchen has been cleverly designed with a pull-out pantry cupboard, silstone worktops, built-in high-tech appliances and feature lighting. The living area has three bi-fold doors leading to the balcony with inset lighting and steel and glass balustrading. This beautiful feature draws you to the view and being completely uninterrupted when the doors are open, spectacularly brings the outside in.

There is a further reception room with a wood burner on the lower-ground floor with two sliding doors to glass Juliet balconies, enjoying the same glorious views. There is also a laundry room and master bedroom on this floor. The master suite includes a dressing area with extensive, built-in wardrobes and an impressive en suite, marble bathroom with rainfall shower, a freestanding bath and twin basins.

The floor below has two en suite bathrooms, one with a balcony that enjoys the views, an additional double bedroom and a family shower room. This floor lends itself very well to guest accommodation as it has the benefit of its own external door leading to the parking area and a separately controlled heating system. Below this is an annex which could easily be incorporated into the main house with the introduction of a staircase. Alternatively, with the addition of a kitchen area this makes ideal, self-contained accommodation or lettings opportunity.

To the front of the property is an excellent parking area, for up to four cars, and garage. Steps lead down the side of the house with doors to a large storage room (housing the oil tank), the guest bedroom and the annex. The rear garden is a good size and slopes down to Brixham Road. Above Creek benefits from a right of access to the neighbour's steps leading down to Brixham Road. This gives the property easy access to Waterhead Creek, lovely woodland walks and the Darthaven Marina.
