Bluebell Is A Charming Detached Period Cottage Set Within Very Private And Well-Established Gardens And Hidden Away Behind An Ancient High Stone Wall With Panoramic Views.

The pretty blue gate in the ancient stone wall on Browns Hill has generated much intrigue over the years, for it is impossible to guess what lies behind. A surprising scene opens up before us - Virtually unheard of in central Dartmouth - a large, beautifully manicured, level lawn leads to a charming two bedroom cottage - 'Bluebell'. The contrasting blue stable door marks the entrance to a delightfully bright living room. Whitewashed walls and pale floorboards showcase the views out over the beautiful garden.

Glide through to the kitchen where shaker cabinets topped with solid wooden worktops allow the retro-style cooker and furnishings to pop joyously. A large belfast sink completes the traditional cottage vibe. Dual aspects means light floods into the space and the partially vaulted ceiling creates a very charismatic space indeed.

Wind up the jolly painted staircase to the first floor and the master bedroom, a spacious and bright space with stunning views over the garden, stretching over town and towards the river. There is access to the eaves storage here. Next door lies the second generous bedroom with one large picture window framing the same verdant views. Drift back downstairs, through the living room we find the delightfully bright study and before we explore the rear garden sneak a peek at the nostalgic tongue & board family bathroom.

Beyond the light filled study, a glazed door leads out onto the first patio and a few steps more to the second upper patio - a great spot for dining with friends whilst enjoying the sunshine - and the views. A staircase draws us down to a large utility room, housing the laundry appliances and a freezer, with plenty of room for gardening maintenance equipment. A little further on and mature trees allow dappled sunlight into another part of this enchanting garden. A few steps wind down through a sweet little passageway leading to the town centre.

Stone steps and a wooden gate lead back to the front of the cottage. Contemporary fencing compliments the ancient stone walling, giving the whole garden and property a wonderful feeling of privacy.

Bluebell is thought to be the grazing area and stables for the hard working donkeys providing transport for weary travellers in days gone by, when Browns Hill was a bustling thoroughfare leading out of town.

A further windy stone path leads long the side of the house to a vegetable garden and greenhouses and access to the rear patios.

There is a possibility of a garage being available by separate negotiation.
