Welcome to The Victorian House. Step up the short flight of steps and through your elegant panelled and glazed front door set beneath a traditional over-light and enter the handsome hall. Original stripped wood flooring guides you up to the fine period staircase.
To your right is the dinning room, a showcase of Victorian elegance and grandeur with an elegant painted wooden mantelpiece surrounding the fire and original servant's bells. A large walk in bay window throws beams of light and movement back into this delightful room.
With high-end entertaining at home becoming more popular, The Victorian House has the ultimate in luxury entertaining spaces accessed directly off the dining room. Sleek bespoke kitchen cabinets work in harmony with the home's historic architecture and are serenely decorated using a neutral palette which compliments the contemporary appliances and modern day conveniences required for a busy family life. From here, one door accesses the utility/boot room, with a further door leading out to the side of the property.
The other door leads into the inner hall with useful guest cloakroom. Make your way to the sitting room. Subtle, elegant colours reflect light from the walk in bay window, illuminating this relaxing and inviting sitting room. The south facing light provides the feeling of space, yet so cosy. Hunker down in front of the crackling log-burning stove on those chilly winter evenings. Enjoy the views out through the front window to the colourful townhouses beyond.
Taking the stairs to the first floor from the entrance hall, pause for a moment to admire the view through the pretty period window, before exploring the first two double bedrooms. Both these bedrooms have en-suites and decorative Victorian detailing such as original windows, dado and picture rails.
Take the staircase that leads to the second floor where you'll find the master suite, this graceful master bedroom has traditional sash windows that overlook the town and country side beyond and the delightful terraced gardens at the back. Classic contemporary styles blend seamlessly in this spacious room which also has it's own seating area and en-suite bathroom.
The fourth bedroom/second sitting room can also be accessed from a separate staircase with an opulent en-suite with soft grey walls, metropolitan tiles and ever so useful linen storage.
A door also leads outside from this room to the garden, accessed over you own bridge; it's rare for a garden to merge so well into a landscape, but the planting at The Victorian House harmonises perfectly with the surrounding Dartmouth landscape. With glimpses of St Saviour's Church rising over the rooftops, the south facing terraced gardens are the perfect spot to enjoy entertaining in all seasons. Sear your steak and crack-open the wine while the family enjoys the lawn caressed in sunshine.
Enjoy sunny, spring afternoons and long summer evenings with friends and family on your perfectly positioned furniture. In fact, numerous entertaining and relaxation areas are dotted throughout the terraced gardens, alongside a garden store and also a studio with power and lighting. Could this be the ideal home office/workshop or even additional guest accommodation?
The business potential of The Victorian House cannot go without a mention. Previously run as a successful Bed and Breakfast, it could provide a very handy income for the new homeowner.
