Jaw-Dropping Views, Stylish, Detached And Yet Easily Accessible, All Wrapped Up In A Wonderful Contemporary Home. Sounds like A Dream Wish List? The Perfect Home That Ticks Every Box.

The vibrant coastal town of Dartmouth is synonymous with quaint narrow streets, tiny ancient cottages interspersed with gloriously modern new builds all with sensational river views reflected in their windows every one making the most of that spectacular view in the best way they can. The current owners of Trafalgar Cottage have managed to create a stunning home that embraces all of these elements and more…

Even nestled amongst the unique properties in the much-sought-after Above Town, Trafalgar Cottage, with its unusual curved profile and striking oak door against a smooth white exterior and contrasting black bargeboards draws our eye. On entering, we discover this property is so much more than it looks from the level.

With honey-toned engineered oak flooring underfoot, past the useful cloakroom area, we are drawn into the stunning contemporary kitchen. Dove grey and navy modern shaker cabinetry draw out the colours of the cool quartz worktop. Subtle sparkles are picked up by the light flooding in through the sliding glazed doors to the Juliet balcony in the dining area. Friends will be delighted to take in the view as they await the culinary treat prepared on the kitchen island - doubling as a breakfast bar with seating for three.

Wind up the gentle spiral stairway - creatively utilising that unusual curve we spotted outside to a lovely indoor feature which transports us to the first floor. An illuminated built-in bookcase greets us as we enter the open-plan living space/ 3rd bedroom. Whitewashed walls highlight the beautiful herringbone flooring underfoot in this spacious room, but the show is stolen by the supreme views through large fully glazed sliding doors over the River Dart and across to the pretty village of Kingswear. Stand at the Juliet balcony and survey a wonderful scene all along the river and out to sea.

Tear yourself away to explore the rest of this stylish home. The floor below the kitchen houses two of bedrooms. Another bright space thanks to the large sliding doors leading onto a fully glazed balcony, A superb spot to breakfast whilst taking in those breathtaking views.

As we descend to the next level, take a peek through the clever pocket door next to this bedroom, where elegant geometric patterned tiles and contemporary sanitary ware blend for a chic and atmospheric shower room.

Wind down to the lowest floor where we find a bedroom with true wow factor. Not only does this wonderfully bright boudoir have superb views from its large private terrace, but as we turn to look back at the room, we discover a glorious round spa bath complete with a tactile pebble wall for a true sanctuary experience. Beside this, we find a smart and sophisticated ensuite shower room.

Wander through the wall of bi-folding glazed doors to the terrace. In-keeping with the rest of this stylish home, slate flagstones, smooth walls, glazed balustrade, in addition to the panoramic river views make this a wonderful space to relax.

There is a detached newly renovated garage available to negotiate on with the house.
