Situation - Located on the sunny east bank of the River Dart, Kingswear is one of the most picturesque villages in the South West with its tiers of streets lined with some very individual and often brightly coloured properties. Along with a welcoming community, the village also boasts a small primary school, church, post office, general store, two public houses as well as a marina, yacht club and a steam railway. A short passenger or car ferry ride and you arrive in the historic town of Dartmouth with its wide range of shops and restaurants.

Description - Arranged over three floors is this superb attached property which would make an ideal family home, second home or holiday let income. The property is orientated to maximise the uninterrupted views of the River Dart and has recently undergone an extensive redecoration and improvement program including a new roof, boiler and flooring throughout. The gardens are well terraced and low maintenance yet generous in size.

Accommodation - Accessed via an enclosed porch the upper ground floor has stairs rising to bedroom four on the top floor and stairs to the ground floor accommodation. The upper ground floor contains three bedrooms, of which two are large doubles boasting superb views over the river. Bedroom two has built in wardrobes and there is a toilet/shower room servicing the bedrooms.
The ground floor comprises the living accommodation, with a large sitting room occupying the majority of it. A well crafted extension occupies the westerly end, which has a fabulous open plan kitchen / dining room enjoying the views through an oversize picture window. The kitchen has side access to the garden via a porch and also has a store room. There is a second bathroom on the ground floor.

Outside - The gardens boast fantastic views which are maximised by two large decked terraces. One terrace is accessed off of the lower ground floor, with steps up to Higher Contour Road and the oil tank. Steps lead down to the lower terrace. This terrace has access to a store and then continues to the gardens, which are mainly laid to gravel for ease of maintenance. The gardens are of a generous size with pretty planted shrubs, landscaped borders and there is space for a greenhouse.

Services - Oil fired central heating with all other mains supplies connected.
