About this property

  • Alcyone and The Holt, both properties with external independent access, are within a beautiful and elegant period property overlooking The River Dart Estuary. Alcyone, the larger of the two, is approached off Warfleet with a welcoming entrance hall and impressive staircase on the ground floor, which also offers a pretty dining room with a hand painted
    inglenook fireplace and a well-appointed kitchen / breakfast room with gas fired range and Butler's sink. Stairs rise to a large landing, which could easily be used as a study and off which is a sitting room with Adam style working fireplace, triple bay window with access to the balcony and superb views. There are three bedrooms on this floor, two with doors leading to the front balcony and all offering wonderful views of the
    estuary. There is a spacious ‘Jack and Jill' Jacuzzi bathroom approached off the main bedroom and the landing, in addition to a separate shower room off the smaller bedroom. The Holt, which occupies the second floor, is also approached down a small flight of steps off Swannaton Road. The Holt is a two bedroom apartment with living room and dining room, kitchen, bathroom and separate cloakroom. Together, the properties offer 3,231 square feet of accommodation and although in need some upgrading in places, are well presented throughout.

    GARDENS, GROUNDS AND LANDS
    The gardens are a delightful feature, being easy to maintain and well established with a colourful array of flowers and shrubs. There are numerous seating and alfresco dining areas,
    pretty stone walling and a small folly area. Off Swannaton
    Road is the access to the DOUBLE GARAGE with first floor
    storage above with potential to be an artist's studio or studio
    apartment. In addition to the garaging is off street parking for
    one vehicle.

I have always thought Alcyone is one of the prettiest houses in Dartmouth but I never knew it had a double garage and parking as well!

Local information

  • Alcyone and The Holt, although within one property can both be approached off different roads, namely Warfleet and Swannaton Road. Warfleet is a quiet and picturesque creek just half a mile from the town centre and Swannaton Road is a single track lane that heads uphill away from the river. Both Alcyone and The Holt offer stunning water views and nearby gorgeous walks to Dartmouth Castle or Dyer's Hill and Gallants Bower, both National Trust owned woods. The fairly level walk into town, results in an eclectic mix of shops, boutiques, galleries, pubs and restaurants and is home to the Britannia Royal Naval College. The town's deep-water port attracts sailing vessels from all over the world and is considered to be one of the prettiest in Europe. Dartmouth lies within the South Hams and the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The nearby town of Totnes (15 miles) offers a main line rail link to London Paddington (under 3 hours) and the A38 (15 miles) provides access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter and the M5 beyond.

  • Directions: From the centre of town, keep the river on your left and the ‘Boatfloat' on your right and continue along The Embankment, turning right into Hauley Road (signposted Dartmouth Castle). At the junction, proceed straight over into Newcomen Road, which in turn becomes South Town. South Town eventually becomes Warfleet, where Swannaton Road will be found on the right. If you continue beyond the entrance to Swannaton Road, Alcyone will be found a short way along on the right.
