Pretty May Cottage, With Its Yellow And Blue Exterior, Is Truly In-Keeping With The Joyous Row Of Cottages On The Iconic Browns Hill. A Surprisingly Fresh, Bright And Spacious Home.
Nestled amongst the much-photographed houses on the iconic Browns Hill is May Cottage. The sweet yellow exterior complimented by baby blue shutters is truly in-keeping with the rest of the pretty row on this ancient thoroughfare. May Cottage is aptly named as it is not only joyfully fresh on the outside, as we access through the large blue wooden front door, we are taken aback by how light and open the interior is.
A large, fully open plan kitchen / dining room opens before us. Whitewashed walls and pale shaker cabinetry showcase the baby blue aga. Honey-toned wooden worktops and the rustic engineered flooring warm the room while the current owner's fantastic antique furniture* finds give this space a very cool vintage vibe.
This theme is continued upstairs as we are drawn past the handy utility room and up a wooden staircase to the first floor and wow! A spectacular living room opens up before us. Once again, white walls and stripped floorboards allow period features to pop. Two beautiful original fireplaces take centre stage at either end of this wonderful space, providing great focal points and allowing the room to be zoned. Sash windows on all four aspects allow for light to flood into the space as well as points to enjoy views out over the rooftops of Dartmouth town and the verdant fields beyond. The sense of space, high ceilings and these pretty views give this lovely room the feeling of vintage parisian chic.
An open staircase cleverly divides the room and draws us up to the first of two bedrooms. These traditional garrett rooms, provide a stylish and cosy place to rest after fun busy days as well as providing even better views out over the town. The family bathroom - complete with a fabulous cast iron roll top bath - is also situated on this floor.
Wind back through the cottage and before we leave, take a quick peek at the handy downstairs loo, before drifting down a few steps and into the heart of vibrant Dartmouth.
