About this property

  • Armorel is a stunning contemporary detached home sitting in the heart of the village of Kingswear. The stand out views from all the principal rooms take in the River Dart, Dartmouth and Britannia Royal Naval College in one direction and the ever changing colour scene of Hoodown Woods in the other. The house which was originally built in the early 1980s has been the subject of a complete renovation program and now offers spacious and well-appointed accommodation which is arranged over five floors and is presented in exceptional order throughout.

    The entrance hall is approached on the level from the driveway and provides access to two beautiful en-suite guest bedrooms, a study and a cloakroom. Stairs rise from this level to the upper floor which is dedicated to the principal bedroom suite. The private landing is vaulted with a glass balustrade and leads to the bedroom which measures over 30' in length and enjoys superb views. The bathroom is fitted with a free standing bath, Japanese bidet loo and large walk in shower.

    The ground floor represents modern day living at its best with a superb open plan living/ dining room with sliding doors to the decked balcony which is largely west facing and enjoys the sun until it sets. For colder days, the wood burning stove creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. The kitchen is fitted with a beautiful range of units and a central island topped with a granite work top. The 3 oven electric Aga is set within a deep recess and other integral appliances include an induction hob, combination microwave / oven, steam oven and dishwasher. To the rear of the kitchen is a larder which is designed to compliment the kitchen with a pull out pantry, double width fridge / freezer and second dishwasher. To the rear of the living room is useful hobby room which occasionally doubles up as a single bedroom if required.

    The lower ground floor is split level and comprises a guest en suite bedroom with doors leading to the decked balcony and a gym and utility room.

    Outside, the driveway offers parking for one vehicle and the garage offers parking for a further vehicle.
