Looking For Beauty & Simplicity? Space & Seclusion? And Those River Views? Well Look No Further Than This Impressive Family Home Set In Sought After Ridley Hill With Wraparound Gardens.

This stunning Arts & Crafts inspired home was built for the current owners to their design and specification in 2008. It artfully combines the key values of the Arts & Crafts movement – namely simplicity, utility, and beauty centred around the creation of beautiful well-made objects for practical everyday living. Wayford epitomises this ethos throughout.

Visitors will be impressed by the natural beauty of the property and its setting, but will be amazed by the level lawn overlooking the River Dart with its breath-taking views up river and across to Dartmouth and the Britannia Royal Naval College.

Level lawns in Kingswear are certainly a talking point as they are few and far between, couple this with ample off-road parking and level access then you really know you have one of a kind here in the village.

Set above the village in sought after Ridley Hill, Wayford’s position affords glorious views and the surrounding space provides privacy and plenty of entertaining options whether for morning coffee on the private rear garden terrace or sundowners on the front lawn overlooking the twinkling lights of Dartmouth.

The Sitting Room blends seamlessly into the Dining Room with doors opening to the Terrace and Garden beyond - it is the perfect entertaining space for large parties or small intimate gatherings. The curved glazed doors add elegance and a gentle reminder of the bespoke craftsmanship which is in every detail of this fabulous home.

The application of true craftsmanship using natural materials definitely shines through in this property – its beauty is evident in its simplicity. Large spaces, high ceilings, wide hallways and interconnected spaces provide a continuous flow.

The spacious Kitchen has a lovely Breakfast Area and is fitted with bespoke solid oak kitchen cabinetry with ample work surfaces and a suite of integrated appliances. Your guests certainly won't mind lending a hand with the washing up when you have that wonderful view.

A striking design feature is the curved staircase as you enter the main Hall - it blends perfectly into the aesthetic of the house being of solid oak construction whilst unusual in its shape delivering on the Arts and Crafts beauty through natural materials. Likewise throughout, the walls, doors and floors are solidly built, with underfloor heating, exuding strength and longevity whilst being warm and inviting enabling you to feel immediately at home.

The Arts & Crafts movement believed in craftsmanship that stressed the inherent beauty of natural materials and Wayford delivers inside and out.

As you wind up the beautiful curved staircase to bed you have a choice of six rooms to lay your head for the night. The Main Bedroom Suite at the end of the hall has amazing views through its curved glass balcony. With beautifully crafted built-in wardrobes this room exudes style and luxury whilst being understated. Its beauty lies in its simplicity.

The En-Suite Bathroom is highly functional using warm materials to provide a luxurious and relaxing feel. There’s a dual vanity unit, full double ended bath, large walk in shower and separate water closet.

There are two further double bedrooms with glorious River Dart views and En-Suite Shower Rooms.

If you have the grandchildren coming then the family may want to set up in the Family Guest Suite to keep the noise at bay. Complete with a spacious double bedroom for the parents and a huge Playroom and Children’s bedroom with En-suite Bathroom, family guests can feel right at home – and jumping up and down in here is no problem as it is a solid concrete floor so could easily be a gym or dance studio if you’d like.

Wayford is a practical and well-thought through family home - every room is well-proportioned with spaces interconnecting so you always feel part of the whole, yet everyone has ample space for their own pursuits and contemplation.

Whether in the Morning Room with coffee, in the Study working whilst trying not to be distracted by the river views from the terrace, or indeed in the Playroom building a train set or two – there is space for all in this beautiful home.

Wayford delivers practical and spacious family living with wrap around gardens enabling sunworshippers to track the sun from one patio to another throughout the day. What's not to like?
