About the property

Apartment in Kingswear, Devon - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk Down To The Village And River Dart

Below Decks is a spacious, stylish apartment situated in Kingswear overlooking Waterhead Creek, the river Dart and Dartmouth. Within walking distance of the passenger and car ferries across to Dartmouth, with its fabulous variety of restaurants, individual lifestyle shops and galleries. Kingswear village has a choice of pubs and an excellent village shop. From here there are good public transport links either by bus, boat or the heritage steam railway. The National Trust properties of Greenway House and Coleton Fishacre are close by and for walkers can be reached by the coast path or the Dart Valley Trail. The closest sandy beaches within a short drive are Broadsands and Goodrington.

Below Decks is accessed via a flight of steps from the roadside down to the patio which runs along the length of the property. Once inside all the accommodation is on one level. The entrance leads into the conservatory with river and woodland views, furnished with table and chairs. From here a doorway leads into the sitting room which offers comfy furniture, side tables, TV with DVD (extensive collection of DVDs), CD/radio with ipod docking station and feature fireplace with electric fire. An arched entrance from the sitting room leads into the kitchen diner with high gloss units and integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, electric oven and halogen hob, microwave and dining table and chairs.

The master bedroom is furnished with ornate white French style furniture with a kingsize bed, two large arched windows and an en suite shower room with large shower cubicle, basin, toilet and heated towel rail. There is also a second double bedroom with 4’6” bed and a third bedroom with twin beds. All the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and attractive plantation shutters. The family bathroom is fully tiled and has a shower over the bath, toilet, basin and heated towel rail.

Off the conservatory is a small television room with TV and sofa.

Exterior: The outside is accessed from the conservatory where there is a large sun terrace with terracotta tiles and garden furniture and lovely river views. From here there is a spiral staircase to the elevated parking space. There is also an enclosed garden with lawn and shrubbery reached by a flight of steps from the patio.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable, spacious and clean apartment. The view from the terrace over Waterhead Creek and the Dart towards Dartmouth is lovely, and the conservatory means you can enjoy the view even when the weather isn't good enough to sit out! The Ship in Kingswear serves decent pub food, and provides a warm welcome, but at the time of our visit was the only place in Kingswear serving evening meals (the other pub having just lost its chef). The apartment is however less than 10 minutes walk to the Lower Ferry (which takes both cars and foot passengers) into Dartmouth which has plenty of shops, a couple of supermarkets and lots of places to eat, all within a few minutes of landing. Paignton and Brixham are both about 20 minutes drive away.
