Grants Cottage is the perfect location to enjoy all that Dartmouth and the surrounding area has to offer. Grade II listed in a conservation zone at the base of Browns Hill steps, commanding unrivalled views up the historic now pedestrian way in the heart of the historic naval town of Dartmouth, in South Devon.

Browns Hill was originally called Slippery Way and was the main road into Dartmouth, ponies were used to carry wealthy people up and down so they did not have to walk. Those ponies were stabled in Grants Courtyard, we understand that the corridor from the front door through to the back was a 'walk way'

Enter into the hallway which runs down the center of the house with a charming original wooden floor.

Leading off from the hallway is the well equipped kitchen/diner with window seat with views up Browns Hill Steps. An electric oven and grill, microwave, built in fridge, dishwasher and a large area for a dining table. Built in wall and base units and ample worktops over.

On the opposite side of the hallway is the cosy and characterful sitting room featuring an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, feature wall with wood inlays, stripped wooden floor. The sash window also offers view up Browns Hill Steps.

At the end of the hallway is the light and airy conservatory room with doors opening into the rear courtyard garden.

Fully enclosed and private rear courtyard garden is perfect for al fresco dining or pre dinner drinks and has plenty of space for outside table and chairs. It also has a tap and is secure for storing bikes.

A utility cupboard off the conservatory houses a washing machine and a counter top freezer.

""We would not hesitate to recommend The Coastal House to anyone looking to sell a property in Dartmouth/South Hams. They are lovely people to deal with and their proactiveness and cleverly targeted marketing strategy sets them apart from other estate agents. The brochure they produced for our property was so beautiful and aspirational that we have kept a copy as a memento of our happy times in Dartmouth. We have no doubt that their individual approach was instrumental in selling our property at the price we wanted in a particularly difficult market." "
