A Slice of the Good Life

Welcome to Devon. Surrounded by luscious green hills, on the edge of the River Dart - Dartmouth is the perfect town for those in search of the idyllic coastal life. Nestled between traditional stone homes and gently ascending paved steps, Starfish Cottage welcomes you home. Located on one of Dartmouth's hills, yet only a stone's throw away from the town centre, the bustling atmosphere of the port disappears as you reach the bright and welcoming front door, complete with silver-coloured chrome knocker. To your right, a garage door leads to a private parking space - one of only a few on the street, to keep your belongings safe and sound.

As you enter the hallway, there is a private entry from the garage to your right - no need to bring the umbrella out should you forget something in the car. Sandstone-coloured tiles underfoot hide an unusually modern feature - underfloor heating, for those cold and dark winter nights. To your left, a three-piece shower room services the ground floor. There are steps leading you up to the first floor, but we'll leave that until later - much more to see down here.

Cook Up a Storm

As you move forward, you reach every cooking lover's dream. A modern, granite-topped kitchen provides ample counterspace to cook with the kids, or entertain family and friends. White cabinets blend easily with the space, yet provide enough room for appliances, utensils and any other cooking necessities - all organised in the way you prefer. Red tiles punctuate the light colours, and add a touch of modern influence in a traditional setting. Overhead and under-cabinet lights means you can use the kitchen at any time of the day - ideal for quickly catering for that late drop-in visit from friends.

Breathtaking Views

For family dinners, guests or a game of scrabble - next to the kitchen lies the pride and joy of Starfish Cottage. A dining area with enough space for even the largest of families, this room can also be converted to a sitting area for socialising and entertaining guests. The full width Bi-Fold doors open up the space to one of the most breathtaking views in Dartmouth. A larger than average balcony allows for spectacular views over the River Dart - perfect for that morning coffee, or that early evening drink. Overlooking the gentle hills, dotted with the colourful homes of Dartmouth, it's easy to feel on top of the world from this balcony.

For the outdoor lovers, there is even more outdoor space nestled in the easy-to-maintain garden of the cottage, ideal for summer barbeques or letting the kids run wild.

Bedrooms for All

Returning back to the entry hallway, ascend the stairway to the first floor landing, where you'll find the spacious Master Bedroom, en-suite and a second living room. The Master Bedroom boasts traditional touches, such as floral accents and a cosy slanting roof - it's so inviting, making it that much harder to leave for work in the mornings. The en-suite bathroom includes everything you need without leaving your secluded space.

Across the hallway, the first floor living room offers a private area for the family, without needing to reach the ground floor. Carpeted floors keep the warmth in, and make the space seem more comfortable and cosy. With enough space for multiple sofas, it's the ideal room to spend a lazy Sunday lounging about with your loved ones.

Away from the Kids

Rising further up the stairs to the top floor - the second floor of the cottage - you'll find two bedrooms to cater for the kids and any overnight guests. A King-sized double bedroom with lots of storage space - this would be the ideal place for a teenager, a guest room or even to convert as a play area for the kids. Large windows on either side of the room allow for natural light to filter in from morning until night. Next, it's the final bedroom of the house, the twin-sized room on the second floor. Complete with a private en-suite - and a flight of stairs away from the Master Bedroom - this would be the ideal room for the kids. A majestic free-standing porcelain bath in the en-suite allows for easy bathing for the little ones, without needing to share with mum and dad. We love the natural light that brightens up the space - so even mum can have a luxurious bath to herself.

Out and About

Despite its secluded and quiet location, Starfish Cottage is only a stroll away from Dartmouth's many shops. For big shops to quick emergency food runs, your local supermarket is never too far away. Take your time on a warm summer's day, or a speedy run through the cold winter mornings - you'll never have to take the car to get the essentials.

Dartmouth offers a wide range of restaurants and entertainment. The Singing Kettle tea shop is a quaint and ideal place to go for the afternoon, or to meet with friends and chat over a good cup of tea. For those special occasions, The Seahorse Restaurant is an elegant bistro situated right on the waterfront, with an open kitchen and leather banquettes - you can tuck in to delights such as charcoal-roasted fish and seafood. Famous with the locals and a little more laid back, head to Kendricks Restaurant for your fill of British cuisine and coastal specialties.

For schools, you are in the best location for almost every nearby school. Dartmouth Preschool is only a 5 minutes' walk away, on an adjacent street. Dartmouth Academy and St John the Baptist Primary School are also a short bus ride away on the 90 bus line - you'll never have to worry about school runs.

"Julie and Donna haven't just sold my home but have been supportive and instrumental in setting me up for my future ventures. They worked tirelessly to deliver results with a very personal touch and for that I will be forever thankful. An estate agency with the 'edge'. I can't recommend them enough."
