Property description

The Lane House is situated on the edge of the popular village of Kingswear with lovely views looking out over the Dart Estuary and across to Dartmouth. The property is approached off a quiet lane and up its own driveway, over part of which 2 other properties have a right of access. The property owns a detached double garage half way up the driveway which also provides vehicular access through the rear of the garage to the garden. The garden borders woodland and has been cleverly designed to create a series of terraces. There is plenty of parking beside the house, the integral double garage and the detached double garage for at least 12 cars or boat trailers.

Steps lead up from beside the integral double garage to the front door. The entrance porch leads into a reception hallway with stairs at the far end. Off the hallway are the utility room (with the oil-fired boiler), a cloakroom/WC and a bedroom with an en suite shower. This bedroom has its own door that leads out onto its own terrace in the garden which, in turn, leads onto the lower terraced lawn. Also off the hallway is a games room (or billiard room) that could also be used as the fifth bedroom. It has a bay window in the corner that leads out onto a small balcony with lovely views out across the Dart Estuary.

Stairs lead up to the first floor hallway off which is the sitting room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room. The sitting room has French doors leading out onto the rear courtyard and catches the morning sun. French doors to the other side of the room lead out to the swimming pool. The sitting room also has a lovely open fireplace. The dining room is equally suited as a study and has a wood burner. The kitchen has been built by Nicholas Anthony and has a central island, ceramic hob, griddle and electric ovens. The stairwell leads on up to the top floor landing, off which are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a balcony, dressing room and en suite bathroom. The family bathroom has both a bath and a shower.

Gardens and grounds
The west facing terrace and swimming pool of the kitchen and sitting room are of particular note and perfect for al fresco entertaining. Both below and above the swimming pool are grass lawns and at the very top of the garden are a summer house and a vegetable garden. The summer house enjoys some of the best views from the property and catches the sun for much of the day.

The South Hams
The village of Kingswear stands on the east bank of the River Dart opposite Dartmouth; both have thriving communities all year round. The village is located in the heart of the much sought-after area of South Devon known as The South Hams within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The region is known for having an uncommonly temperate climate, consisting of lush, unspoilt countryside, hidden combes and a spectacular coastline.

Kingswear has a pub, church, village store and post office as well as the Royal Dart Yacht Club and a privately owned marina. Dartmouth, a short ferry ride away, has a larger collection of restaurants, pubs, boutique shops, banks, chain stores and supermarkets. It is also home to the Britannia Royal Naval College.

Communication links are very good with the A38 Devon Expressway 20 miles to the north and the M5 Motorway at Exeter via the recently completed A380 Kingskerswell bypass.

There are regular Intercity rail services from both Exeter (London Paddington 2 hours 4 minutes) and Totnes (London Paddington 2 hours 50 minutes). Exeter Airport has a growing number of domestic and international flights often negating the need to drive to Bristol or the London Airports.

There are a number of lovely beaches in the South Hams and excellent golf courses at Dartmouth and Churston. Both, Kingswear and Dartmouth have excellent facilities for sailing, with Dartmouth Royal Regatta being a highlight of the racing calendar. For the more ambitious yachtsman there are deep water moorings, three marinas and a number of boat yards. For the cruising yachtsman Kingswear is the perfect base from which to explore France, The Channel Islands and the picturesque harbours and creeks of the West Country.

Kingswear and its immediate environs have numerous sandy beaches, coves and sheltered anchorages, all of which make it excellent for water sports, boating and long walks along the beautiful coastline.

Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil-fired central heating and swimming pool heating.

All those items regarded as tenant's fixtures and fittings, together with the fitted carpets, curtains and light fittings, are specifically
