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 - This is a truly magnificent house which has been beautifully renovated with contemporary styling throughout, each of the three large bedrooms has a luxurious en-suite bathroom complete with underfloor heating. The new kitchen has been well designed, and the adjoining dining room has built-in bench seating and an integral drinks cupboard for entertaining. The vaulted sitting room is spacious and light, with excellent views of the River Dart. Whether exercising, gardening, or enjoying sunshine on one of the terraces, the views from the grounds are spectacular.

Accommodation - A short flight of stone steps leads to the part glazed front door with marine-grade stainless steel door furniture. The entrance hall has natural sisal carpet and modern pendant lights.
 
The guest bedroom with en-suite shower is a good sized double with high ceilings, cast iron radiator and a double-glazed sash window looking over the marina and upriver. The en-suite is modern and luxurious with a fully slate tiled monsoon shower with glazed shower enclosure and tiled floor with underfloor heating. An under stairs cupboard houses the pressurised hot water cylinder and electric heating system, both newly installed in 2015.
