A three bedroom house in an enviable position on the East bank of the River Dart
The house sits on the East bank of the Dart Estuary and looks down directly over the river with boats moored outside. It is a magical waterside location and a very easy, flat, short walk (500 metres) to the town centre. There are few houses better located in the town and the whole house has been stylishly fitted and decorated.
Approached through the garden and into an entrance hall, the property has wide sitting/dining room, and an open plan kitchen, with views down over the river and a French window. A separate study/snug to the right of the entrance hall completes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs on the first floor is the master bedroom which, like the sitting room, overlooks the river with a French window and has an ensuite bathroom. A second bedroom on this floor has access to the family jack & jill bathroom. A further bedroom with a dressing room is found on the second floor.
There is a pretty front garden leading to the house with a lawned area and path leading to the house. Established trees and shrubs give privacy.

There are good private and state schools, as well as the Steiner School in the local area at Totnes, Newton Abbot or Exeter, with the surrounding villages having excellent primary schools.
The property is readily accessible to Dartmouth, Dartmoor National Park, and the award winning beaches along the English Riviera.
