Tenure: Freehold

Shimmerings is an utterly charming, detached property set in a south facing position in the heart of Dittisham and commanding outstanding views over the village to the River Dart and Agatha Christie's Greenway Quay. The property dates from 1936 and has been carefully maintained and updated by the current owners, resulting in a luxuriously appointed family home of style and character. Great attention to detail and extensive use of English Oak combined with custom hand built joinery throughout the property and modern Rationel windows and doors, has created a home of enormous quality and comfort. There are wonderful views over the village to the River Dart from all the principal rooms of the house and gardens.

The south facing landscaped gardens are a real delight with various seating areas from which to enjoy the stunning views. To the rear are two level lawns which, using their elevated position, offer 'infinity' style river views. York stone paths meander through beautifully stocked and tended flower beds.

This is a great opportunity to purchase a fabulous home in one of the most sought after villages in the South Hams.

Dittisham is a picturesque Devon village with charming cottages lining the narrow streets. It is one of the most sought after villages in the South Hams and lies on the west bank of the River Dart. It has a medieval church, a popular sailing club, riverside cafe and two public houses, one of which is home to the post office/stores. A passenger ferry service links the village to the port of Dartmouth where there is a good range of galleries, shops, restaurants and excellent marina facilities.
