Dartmouth is not your average sleepy coastal town. It is buzzing with culture, art, gastronomic offerings and a lively community spirit. Well known for its famous Royal Regatta and Royal Naval College, Dartmouth is steeped in history and its architecture is unique to the town. Dartmouth provides a good range of shops, restaurants and galleries and is surrounded by wonderful countryside whilst only a short drive from some of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The A38 Devon expressway is approximately 19 miles away, allowing speedy access to the cities of Exeter and Plymouth and the country beyond whilst main line rail links to London Paddington can be made in Totnes.

Fairholme is situated only a stone's throw from the River Dart in the highly sought-after, South Town. The property offers the unique opportunity to refurbish two waterside apartments or combine into one larger property. The front door leads to a characterful entrance hall with wood panelling and mosaic tiled floor. Leading from the entrance hall is the ground floor sitting room with two large sash windows offering wonderful views of the River Dart and across to Kingswear. An inner hall leads to a bathroom, airing cupboard and a useful utility room with WC and space and plumbing for a washing machine. To the rear is a double bedroom and kitchen with door opening to a set of steps which rise to the enclosed terrace at first floor level.

A curved staircase rises to the first floor landing with skylight above. To the front of the property are two sizeable rooms both with charming bay windows offering stunning, panoramic views of the River Dart from the Higher Ferry to Dartmouth Castle and the sea beyond. To the rear is a bedroom with built in wardrobes and a bathroom. The kitchen features a range of floor and wall mounted units whilst there is a utility area with door opening to the enclosed terrace.

Freehold. The separately owned and not for sale second floor apartment is held on lease.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
