The highly acclaimed village of Dittisham is one of the South Hams most desirable areas with its picturesque setting laying on the west bank of the River Dart. It is home to a medieval church, a popular sailing club, two popular inns (one of which serves as the local post office and shop), and a riverside café. A passenger ferry serves the village to the port of Dartmouth, which is a renowned town steeped in maritime history and offering an array of restaurants, shops and galleries.

Church & Lychgate Cottage is located in the charming riverside village of Dittisham. Having been amalgamated from two cottages, the property has retained both original staircases adding flexibility in its usage. Located next to the grounds of St Georges Church, this charming property boasts 4-5 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms and a gorgeous decking area that leads on to stunning views of the River Dart.

The properties main entrance is at Church Cottage into a beautiful entrance hall, door to the right and the adjoining kitchen breakfast room. A lovely room full of character; exposed stone work and wooden beams, plenty of space for a dining table & chairs. There is also a family bathroom off the hallway, useful if you wanted to create a downstairs guest room rather than have a study or music room on the ground floor. Door into a spacious sitting room and original charm with a fitted log burner or the contemporary Carpenter Oak garden room with underfloor heating and its full glass surround and views out over the church and down to the river.

Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms, 1 of which is currently serving as a lounge (formerly part of the village school) and a family bathroom. There is plenty of scope to add an en-suite with a dressing room off Bedroom 2. Lovely views are afforded from upstairs and such delightful aspects are enjoyed from this property.

There is a wonderful decked terrace off the sun-room with small areas of planted shrubs.

Mains water & drainage with electric heating.
