Cherry Trees is currently a detached bungalow with three bedrooms situated on a magnificent hillside location, boasting breath-taking views towards the sea and Dartmouth castle. The property features light and welcoming accommodation, which is all tailored to making the most of those magnificent views. There is an inner reception hall to the property, which features full-height windows overlooking the bay, while the sitting room offers the same superb vantage point, welcoming plenty of natural light from the extensive glazing, and benefitting from enough space for a dining table in addition to a sitting room suite. The kitchen is well equipped with integrated appliances, while there are three generous bedrooms, including a very well-proportioned master bedroom, with a door providing direct access onto the rear terrace, plus a family bathroom.


Full planning has recently been granted (1725/17/FUL.) to create an outstanding circa 5000 sqft contemporary detached house arranged over 3 floors with integral garaging and off street parking for several vehicles, given the outstanding views over the estuary mouth and Dartmouth castle the orientation of the glazed elevations are design to maximise the breath-taking views that the property enjoys. The generous plot extending to approx. 0.5 acre incorporates an orchard and a former tennis court . The planning has been implemented by BBH architects.

This property has 0.47 acres of land.


There is a private driveway leading from the road to the front of the property, which benefits from a single garage and parking for several vehicles. The property is oriented to take advantage of the spectacular south-facing views, which mean the garden is a sunny spot in which to relax. There is a seating terrace at the back of the house, with lawns beyond, while further access to the side leads to another area of lawn, the orchard surrounded by mature trees and providing outstanding views out towards the coast. There is also a former tennis court below the property which is in need of some TLC. The gardens extend to approximately 0.5 acres.


Set on the banks of the River Dart, opposite the vibrant town of Dartmouth, Kingswear is a small village, which is full of character and charm. The village has several everyday amenities, including a village shop, a local pub and a primary school, while the village is connected to Dartmouth via a regular ferry service, offering easy access to the larger town, with its wealth of amenities, shopping and leisure facilities. Kingswear is an ideal setting for sailing, lying close to the River Dart’s estuary and the south Devon coastline, while there are plenty of other leisure activities, including coastal walking and several good golf courses nearby. The village also has a station, with seasonal steam trains running on the Dartmouth Steam Railway towards Paignton.


From Exeter, take the A30 south to the A38 Devon Expressway, and head south for two and a half miles before filtering onto the A380. After following the A380 for 17 and a half miles, continue onto Brixham Road (A3022) and after just more than two miles, at the traffic lights, turn right onto Dartmouth Road (A379). After three quarters of a mile, fork to the right to stay on the A379 for a further two miles, before taking the second exit at the roundabout and then turning left onto Slappers Hill. After two miles, turn left onto Higher Contour Road, and after half a mile, you will find the property on your right-hand side, on the outside of a sweeping bend as the road climbs up the hill.
