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 very welcoming community, the village also boasts a small primary school, church, village hall, bistro/cafe, general store, two public houses, post office, coffee shop as well as a marina, yacht club and a steam railway with a regular bus service to the towns in Torbay. A short passenger or car ferry ride and you arrive in the historic town of Dartmouth with its wide range of shops and restaurants.

This three bedroomed semi-detached property, built circa 1874 and on the market for the first time in 58 years, is in need of full modernisation internally and externally. It is situated within walking distance from the amenities in the village and the passenger ferry.

The property is in an elevated position with stunning views over Waterhead Creek and the River Dart with glimpses of the Britannia Royal Naval College. It has the potential to create outside dining terraces to the front of the property to take full advantage of these views, The property would make, once renovated, an ideal home or holiday home with access from both Brixham Road and Lower Contour Road.

The sitting room has a large window to the front which overlooks Waterhead Creek and Dartmouth beyond.

A door to the rear of the dining room leads through to the kitchen which has a range of floor and wall mounted cupboards with space for washing machine, fridge freezer and free-standing cooker. The back door leads into a rear storage area from which the rear courtyard, outside toilet and coal store can be accessed.

The large master bedroom is located to the front and has superb views across Dart Haven Marina, the River Dart and towards Dartmouth.
